Wow Applebee’s, was it serious enough to call the police?
Family Kicked Out Of Applebee’s Over Kids
Kids will always be “active”…it’s a shame a nice family outing had to turn out like this.
According to Mail Oline
A couple said they are ‘heartbroken’ after staff at Applebee’s called police on them because their children were being too active, it emerged today.
Eli Gau and his wife Lillian Maliti admit their sons Ryan, three, and Ethan, one, can be a handful at times but nothing that would warrant being asked to leave a ‘family-friendly’ restaurant.
On Sunday night the family of four went to an Applebee’s restaurant in Katy, Texas, for dinner.
Everything seemed normal until Ryan wandered away from the table, as children sometimes do.
Mr Gau told KHOU 11News: ‘They’re kind of active. They act like children. They’re not adults.
‘I went and grabbed him, and as I was grabbing him and coming back, the manager was walking to me.’
The manager said his children were making too much noise and told them to leave. He had already called the authorities, who were waiting for them outside the restaurant.
The Harris County Sheriff’s Deputy gave them a notice warning them for criminal trespassing.
Mrs Maliti told KHOU 11 she was stunned.
‘I feel disrespected,’ she said. ‘This has never happened in my life.’
The restaurant markets itself on its website as ‘a prominent eatery [that] draws people of all ages and lifestyles with its fun, family-friendly atmosphere and signature bar and grill menu.’
An Applebee’s spokesperson apologized profusely for the incident and said the management team had mishandled the situation.
The family were invited back to the restaurant and given free dinner passes but Mr Gau said they would be taking their business elsewhere.
‘I feel heartbroken, very sad,’ he said.
A free dinner is not enough. When management does some ridiculous isht like his…someone’s azz needs to be fired.
(Are we wrong for wondering if they got some Bebe’s Kids tho?)
