CAROLINA BEACH, N.C. (AP) - The owner of a coastal North
Carolina restaurant is fed up with screaming children who bother
So Brenda Armes has posted signs at Olde Salty restaurant in
Carolina Beach that read "screaming children will not be
tolerated." She told WECT-TV in Wilmington that the signs have
worked by attracting more customers than they turn away.
Customer Gary Gibson agrees, saying he likes the signs because a
meal isn't enjoyable when kids are screaming.
But a mother of two, Ashley Heflin, says parents can't help it
if their children scream.
If a child is screaming, Armes says a restaurant employee will
ask the parent to take them outside. They won't be asked to leave
the restaurant for good.
