How long do you wait to tell the mother of the child kicking your seat constantly to make their kid stop. I want to physically throw this kid off the plane mid flight.

I prefer the passive aggressive approach by turning around several times and making sure I make eye contact with the mother. On the 4x 😠, I tell the kid to stop "can you please stop kicking me?" Kids are terrified of being reprimanded by someone other than their soft ass parents. I'm also an asshole

I am the mother who has the kids and I promise we are hating it as much as you.

I waited for a long time to say something and listened to see if the mom would tell the kid to stop or hold their legs down or remind them someone was sitting there. Not one attempt in 45 min. I wouldn't have said anything if the parents tried to get the kid to stop

Agree with acn1. Sorry OP, feel bad but i just took a flight with our 16 month old and believe me, we tried all we could to stop the crying and kicking but there are times when that doesnt help. Its a phase in life that we feel will go away soon 😞

Hello Everyone - Looking for advice from Deloitte practitioners! I am a specialist senior at Deloitte, got back from maternity leave in April 2020.

My project scatterplots have been consistently good 5,5(top right) over the last 3 years. Do they not consider these things before rating someone as low? Feeling very low!

All - I have a question. Lot of these smaller cryptos like XRP, SC, GNT etc. are bought using BTC or ETH. So basically, for you to be able to make money, not only these smaller cryptos have to go up but the corresponding crypto you used to buy them has to go up too for you to make profits. How do you circumvent that, if at all?

Any insights into Xaxis? (Especially the NYC or Chicago offices)
