Exactly what I was going to say!!

Around here, they are not connected to a bookstore etc.
Other than B&N's starbucks, I can't imagine that any restaurant that is silent/quiet while people are eating...or quiet enough to hear a squeak.

Stupid whiny people!!

Oh, boo-hoo.
They didn't single her out because she was disabled, they didn't kick her out of the restaurant, all they did was ask a simple fucking question and the subject was immediately dropped when the waitress was informed those shoes were on her for a good reason. This woman is being ridiculously oversensitive.

There are crabby people everywhere, that doesn't make it the restaurants fault.

I could see if the child was loud or running around as I've seen kids in stores on scooters and skating during Christmas rush, but, it was kind of rude of the waitress.

I love crabby people! As a teenager, at my first full time job, I talked to all the pharmacies people bitched about. I realized at 17 or so, that some people just like to bitch and complain and you just have to listen and agree once in a while.

It made me feel like I had no problems and was happy :)

After an accident where a woman ran a red light and totaled my car one week less than it being one year old, and was screaming her ass off, I told her she was the most miserable person I ever saw and she needed to get laid.

My brother cracked up because I worked for lawyers and was in full drag and stood quietly, which crabby people also hate, then told me it was funny because I looked classy and said that.

Since there were police, firemen and medics there, I didn't want to say, "Go fuck yourself!" The medic was a former neighbor.

The woman was a lunatic! She had all her, "Ye Olde Rugged Cross," and I forget what else, religious stickers on her rear bumper. I took my own pictures of her car and mine. I found those pictures recently and it was back in 1997.

One of my lawyers tried to serve her in person and she refused service. She moved several times in the months after the accident. Her insurance company was non-existent.

I had to sue my own insurance company.

Re: Restaurant Apologizes After Child With Disability Asked to Remove Shoes

Asking people to remove shoes could potentially cause greater, stinkier problems at a restaurant than some squeaking. All the "adults" complaining about a little girl's shoes could at least have thought of that.

It would have been funny if she had stinky, nasty feet!

I never thought little kids smelled until my one niece took off her shoes at about 8 years or age or so.

Honestly, they smelled like dog shit, and the girl showered every day!

Some little kids need deodorant because they sweat a lot. They are all different, just like all of us.
