Elbows Off the Table

I fully believe that the world would be a much better place if everyone were forced to enroll in finishing school. Finally someone at the LA Times agrees with me.

Apparently a group of rabid soccer moms were enraged by a sign outside of a restaurant that said that children would need to behave in a polite manner once inside. Can you believe it?! I mean, the nerve.

That's fine with the eatery's owner, who was fed up with parents who ignored their children's wilder moments. Not your basic kid stuff of chanting "Mommy" loudly 50 times over 30 seconds until they get parental attention, or playing under the table. These children were brazenly running headlong into display cases, screaming full throttle and spreading themselves on the floor in the path of customers carrying hot coffee.

You must read the rest. If you fancy yourself a part of polite society, you'll nod your head and laugh the whole read.
