Why do people go to a family type restuarant and talk loudly about stuff like this?

My dh and I brought our boys, 6 and 9, to Chili's for supper. Two couples came and sat at the table next to us. One of the guys starts talking loudly about sex and orgasms and a few other really personal sexual topics. I leaned over a bit and tried to get his attention but he was busy talking. However, the woman with him made eye contact with me and I shrugged and gestured to my kids. She got an OMG kind of face and poked him, then pointed at my kids. He looked stricken and mouthed, "I'm sorry." I said, "it's okay" He was obviously embarrassed when he realized what he was doing but, lol, why would you talk like that in a place like that?

Even though he shouldn't have been talking like that at mock volume, just because you/we have kids doesn't mean others need to adjust for us.

Yeah I dont talk about those things in a public area at all but that doesnt stop others.  We have been apologized to from teens/young adults cussing up a storm and then realizing there was a child present.  We didnt even know it since we were in our family zone of conversation with dd.

It was Chilli's not Chuck E Cheese. My rule is if they serve alcohol I can talk about whatever I want. Those types of restaurants are more frequented by college students than children.

 No, he could have continued being rude. Luckily, he realized that what he was doing was inappropriate. I mean, I don't want to hear that crap as an adult, never mind let my kids hear it. Had he continued, I would have just asked to move.

He was probably in the moment and didn't look around to see who was listening. Chili's is a type of place for all kinds..girls night out, family dinner, just couples night out, etc.

People without kids don't think about what kids will think.  I don't think about what kids will think even when I just leave mine at home.   You have a drink, you get a little boisterous, you forget yourself.  It happens.  

It was nice of them to react so well when the kids were pointed out to them.  Many people would have just kept on talking.  You also get major brownie points for being sensible and calm and not acting like they were showing porn to kindergarteners.  Nice to know not everyone out there is a boorish twit and people can handle things with grace and consideration.  ;-)

You know my family is usually having a good time and don't pay attention to anyone else's conversations ;-)

 Yes, and I totally realized that. When I made eye contact with the woman, I smiled. I was a teensy bit amused but did want him to stop before my six year old asked me what an orgasm was. lol

They serve beer at Chuck E. Cheese, but I get what you mean. A restaurant with a bar.
