Crying Children Banned From Atlanta Pizza Restaurant
This was in a story from WAGA tv in Atlanta. The restaurant allegedly was receiving a lot of complaints from some of the patrons about unruly children.
The owner, Donnie Parmer, said that he saw a bunch of complaints about crying children on Yelp.com, and a complaint about a customer getting hit in the head with a toy from a child of another customer.
This is when he decided that he had enough and added the disclaimer. “Dear all present and future patrons: GCP is proud of its reputation as a family restaurant, a title that we will work to keep. Unfortunately a number of our diners have posted unpleasant experiences because of crying and unsupervised children. To ensure that all diners have an enjoyable lunch or dinner with us we respectfully ask that parents tend to their crying tots outside.”
There apparently have been no complaints about the disclaimer, while some others say that it’s just part of the family restaurant experience. One thing to keep in mind is that they’re not throwing out customers or banning anyone.
It’s what they’re calling a “polite reminder.” Some people also stated that it’s pretty sad that it had to be printed in the first place. It is annoying when you’re in a restaurant or a store when kids start carrying on in that manner, but I only see it happen once in a while. They're kids, it happens. How do you feel about this disclaimer?
