The so-called issue—
A gourmet coffee shop in the UK has caused uproar with parents by banning all children under the age 12.
Furious families have blasted “pompous” bosses at Fifteen on the Corner in Lichfield, Staffordshire, after they were turned away from the premises with their youngsters in toe.
—is it over private property rights and business sense; or the fact that New Zealand’s biggest newspaper has no proofreaders no more? (Then again, niether does noone.)
AS FOR THE ISSUE
I like the idea!
In fact, I love it! Modern kids are too often the product of modern parenting (hence all the Snowflakes) and I see no reason why, if the above mentioned is intent on creating a vacuum, some ‘kid friendly’ entrepreneur can’t carpe the diem and make a fortune filling a perceived need at a profit. Win/win, no?
This, dammit, is the meaning of Free Enterprise. Get over it …
And if they had cafes here that don’t allow children (but still served an even halfway decent latté) they’d get my custom. And I imbibe a lot of coffee …
McDonalds deserve themselves, a kid-fiendly place. Take your cherubs there and it’s win/win/win for everyone, no?
The City Fathers of Invercargill (many of ’em Mothers, but that’s aside) have decided in their wisdom to ‘open up’ the Invercargill library into a children’s playground … I kid you not. (I like the coffee shop idea though).
AND OFF TOPIC
but while I think of it—
For JZ and Ark: I knew I’d find it~!
