Sorry, but that’s rather offensive to people with families. I have
children, and while we rarely take them places, we almost always
have random people stopping by the table and complimenting us and
them on their manners.
Presuming ALL parents are ill-bred mannerless people, and then
saying that we’re trouble makers, is offensive. I’m sure in a
perfect world, you could have your adults only table in an adults
only place. In the mean time, try going to a bar where kids aren’t
allowed if you don’t want to be disrupted.
Children can be disruptive. Guess what- everyone who hates it,
chances are, someone looked at you or your children the same way at
one time. No parent is perfect. Sometimes, you just have to deal
with not having your life be perfect. Kids are a joy, whether
everyone agrees or not.

restaurants anymore, but it was my husbands b-day. This toddler on
at the next table over screamed the entire time we were there. I
bit my tongue, but really why on earth don’t people just take the
screaming kid out. I took my daughter to the car many times when
she was little, and my husband had the waitress pack our food up. I
don’t get it.
