(Newser) – Friendly's Sports Bar and Grill in St. Louis didn't quite live up to its name this Father's Day, when a man found an unusual line item on his printed receipt: "1 f---in needy kids," KSDK reports. The place doesn't usually allow children, its manager says, but he made an exception for the holiday. After the man ordered an extra chicken leg for his son, his receipt came with the insulting charge—though at least there was no price attached to it.

The waitress had intended the item as a joke for the kitchen staff, manager Denny Domachowski says. "So customers with children are a joke? This place isn't so friendly," the dad noted on Facebook, per Gawker. "Normally, those (kitchen) instructions are cleared off the bill before it's printed out and given to the customer," Domachowski tells the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "But, obviously, they weren't." He apologized for the incident.

Never fails to amaze me how people go to restaurants with irritating kids, and then they're like OMG SOMEONE FINDS MY KIDS IRRITATING. The world is not your babysitter. If you carry your annoying spawn with you into public, expect for them to be called annoying spawn. On that note, if I lived in St. Louis, I would totally patronize this place, knowing now that they don't normally allow children.
