    Kids will be kids, and a certain amount of noise is natural and should be expected.

    However, there are parents who are utterly oblivious to the behavior of their children and fail to do anything when it does cross the line. For example, I was in a restaurant the other day where this couple were allowing their children to throw things (sugar packets, napkins, etc) at one another - and beyond one another to other tables. When these two precious bundles of wonder grew bored with that, they were literally running around the restaurant screaming and hiding from one another under tables - tables occupied by other diners. When asked to control their children by a very polite fellow diner at the adjacent table, the mother told her children "now, stop that", and returned to her conversation. Thirty seconds later, the kids were right back to screaming and running about.

    Finally, the manager came over and told her to either get control of her children or take them out of the restaurant. She got quite indignant and huffy, at which point the manager told her that there would be no charge for what they had already eaten and drunk, but that they were to take their children and leave. He got a round of applause from the adjacent tables.

    While it is not the place of another patron to "quiet down" anyone else's children, there absolutely are standards for acceptable conduct in public for children even when the parents don't understand them. And sadly, there are a few parents out there than have no clue.

    Of course there are extremes on either side. There are for any arguement and theres no point in bringing them up. I would expect the eatery to do the same thing. You pointed out the meat of the matter that is being argued here in your text. Its the establishments right to determine what is acceptable, yes but we are talking about an individual who tries to take matters into his own hands.

    Well, the entire thread is about the "extreme" of a subject threatening someone else's children.....
    Battle Plan (n) - a list of things that aren't going to happen if you are attacked.
    Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

    You would let your wife touch another mans nuts?
    One more step and it's on!
