LOS ANGELES , December 21, 2012 () – McDonald's Corp.'s sole franchisee in Thailand--McThai--has issued a notice limiting customers to a one-hour seating limit during weekend, lunch and dinner hours, The Wall Street Journal reported Dec. 21.

The company, which has 178 restaurants in the country, is also discouraging customers from charging mobile phones and laptops via its electric outlets for more than 30 minutes.

The new rules come as many customers have been complaining about not having seats to eat their meals. McDonald's is also reserving the right to remove any belongings used to reserve seats and can request customers to buy more food and drink if they are seated in a large group with few food purchases.
