CAROLINA BEACH, N.C. (AP) -- The owner of a coastal North Carolina restaurant is fed up with screaming children who bother other diners.
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.
