(Newser) – Do you like listening to screaming children while you eat? No? Well, Grant Central Pizza feels your pain. The Atlanta-area restaurant has added a new message to its menu: "We respectfully ask that parents tend to their crying tots outside." Grant Central's co-owner Donnie Parmer tells Fox 5 that the restaurant is still family-friendly, but that Yelp reviewers have complained about crying and unsupervised kids.

Parmer says the last straw was when one child hit another customer in the head with a toy. He doesn't actually intend to kick offending parents out, saying the notice is just a "polite reminder." So far, no parents have complained, either. "We've had a lot of people say, 'Thank you for adding it to the menu.'"
