A Minnesota Arby created a stir last month after posting a sign at the entrance that told parents they would be asked to leave if their little ones did not behave.
Christina Hemsworth noticed the sign when she visited an Arby's in Elk River – about 35 miles north of Minneapolis – October 6, Today Food reported.
“Only well-behaved children who can hold theirs on their boards and their bottoms on the seats are welcome. If you can't do this, you'll be asked to leave, the sign reads.
Hemsworth told the outlet that she was worried that her 2-year-old would violate the strict terms of service, but decided to eat there anyway.
While eating, cursing an Arby employee in front of the family, an act she believed was contrary to the restaurant's request for etiquette.
"I'm not a complainer – I'm not really," Hemsworth told the outlet. "The leader could have addressed the message to people individually, not given it to the public."
Hemsworth told about his experience in a Facebook post that night. The post hit around 330 shares before she deleted it.
She then reached out to Minneapolis & # 39; KARE 11 to share the story – which the station posted on her Facebook page.
The reactions were largely lawful. Many praised the franchise for standing up to parents who failed to discipline their children. Some who worked at restaurants were sympathetic to Arby's franchise.
"I wish more places did this," read one post. "Maybe parents will get the hint and disciple their kids."
Others thought the language was insensitive. In the midst of media talk about the franchise's sign, the franchise made an apology.

"We recognize the language on this sign was insensitive," the company's statement read. “We removed it quickly and have disciplined the manager and team working at the restaurant. It does not reflect the company's values and the family-friendly environment we aim to offer in all our restaurants. ”
