Diners behaving badly

Did you hear about the Seattle area family that had 4 bucks subtracted from its restaurant bill as a reward for having well-behaved kids?I applaud the thoughtful Italian restaurant for encouraging polite behavior among guests, but why stop at diners under the age of 8?I certainly have sympathy for anybody who has to put up with ill-mannered children when they're trying to have a nice meal, but my history of fine dining has been far more disrupted by rude adults than pint-sized patrons.Why are we always picking on kids?...
