Restaurant owners, airline customers like quiet children

|

A family in Washington State got a big surprise this week when they received a $4 discount on their restaurant meal for “well-behaved kids,” SFGate.com reports.

The mom posted the receipt on Reddit.com under the name LauraInk.  She wrote the following:

We enjoyed a fabulous dinner sans crayons, iPods, and other toys. We appreciate conversing with one another over dinner and always use our dinners out to catch up and do just that. I worked in the restaurant industry prior to having kids and so have high expectations of my children when we are out to eat. We never arrive starving and always tip well. I encourage all parents to take their kids out to eat so they know how to do so. This kind of reward was not expected and probably not something they do regularly. Frankly, it is not the kind of restaurant you often see young children at. Our server visited our table toward the end of our dinner and remarked at how the entire serving staff hadn’t even noticed there were young children at our table. They brought us a bowl of ice cream to share and we saw this little nugget of goodness on our tab at the end of our meal.

Some Reddit users praised the small restaurant for encouraging good behavior. Others thought good behavior should be expected, and those behaving badly should pay a penalty.

And in other “kids in public” news, one airline is offering passengers a chance to get away from kids and other travel noise in-flight, CBS New York reports. Air Asia now offers seating in a “quiet zone,” available for the normal fee the airline’s passengers pay to choose their own seat anywhere on the aircraft. The news is music to the ears of one guy in this video, who doesn’t mind telling a national audience that he “hates kids.”
