I have a son, he's 10 now so he's less likely to stand in a booth at a restaurant. But when he was younger he would. I made it a point to let him know it was rude. So why do other people do this with their kids? I really don't appreciate some little snot nosed kid hanging over the booth into my booth touching me with his sticky hands and staring at me. I think, to make a point, I'm going to jump over the wall and poke the parents eyes out with my two index fingers, just to make the point. Control your freakin' child just a little, stop negotiating and exert some control!
