THE OWNER of a restaurant in Co. Kerry was left completely baffled after a customer had the nerve to complain that there was "too much laughter".
Jim McCarthy, who runs the Chart House Restaurant in Dingle, took to social media to share the story.
"So tonight a guest complained, she was not happy there was too much laughter in the restaurant, I'm lost for words. Honestly, lost for word," he tweeted.
"After opening the restaurant in 1997, I really thought I had heard it all."
Later on, a Twitter user asked McCarthy if the woman was simply "having a laugh", but he said: "No, she was miserable all night because I insisted she show me ID."

Since July 26, all adults must provide proof of full vaccination against Covid-19, courtesy of a vaccine certificate, in order to access indoor areas of pubs, restaurants and cafés nation-wide.
The legislation has divided people, with critics viewing the news rules as being discriminatory.
But while proof of vaccination remains a requirement for customers in restaurants, withholding laughter certainly isn't one.
