IN early May, the White Moose Café in Dublin, Ireland (愛爾蘭) posted on social media that it was adding a surcharge to customers with screaming children. The eatery said it set
up the policy to be more considerate to other customers.
When a child screams, that table will get a 15 percent surcharge, with each following kid adding another 10 percent, with four kids as the maximum. If the table has more than
four screaming children, the whole table will be asked to leave.
Some netizens praised the new policy, saying that more businesses should add such an extra charge, and that it was the best news they had heard all day. Other commenters
disagreed and said the policy is not respectful and will only cause the eatery to lose customers.
