A Canadian family got a nice surprise during Mother's Day brunch -- a discount for having well-behaved children.

Carino Japanese Bistro in Calgary listed the $5 discount on the family's bill.

Reddit user "looseONtheGoose" posted an image of the receipt online, noting, "Out for Mother’s Day brunch today with our one-year-old daughter, when we received our bill."

The post quickly sparked an extensive discussion on everything from the behavior of children in restaurants to dining taxes in cities around the world.

The redditor, Daley Walsh, told Yahoo Shine the discount came as a lovely surprise.

"I feel it was just a really nice gesture," he said, "and it really made my wife’s Mother’s Day special, affirming her hard work as a parent for the last year."
