“My child is on my lap and her legs cannot possibly reach your seat. You should speak to your doctor if you continue to have delusions, as this could be a symptom of a serious medical condition. Please turn around in case whatever you have is contagious.” People are just a-holes. But hey they had to listen to your kid have a meltdown so justice is served?

I had a woman turn around when my daughter was 3 and use baby talk to warn her not to kick the woman’s seat. When she turned back around, I kicked her seat, told her my foot slipped.

Ugh. Sending hugs! Whenever I see a mama in a tough spot I try to send her "I support you!" vibes in a noncreepy way. You got this!!!

I got into an argument with a woman on a flight from Seattle to SFO, which is less than a 2 hour flight because my son was 3 and accidentally kicked her seat when we were landing in SFO and I apologized, yet she still proceeded to go off on me. This was before everything and everyone records everything, but I definitely went off on her. People are just assholes about parents traveling with kids.

Hang in there mama!! You’re doing a great job! Some people just suck. Your LO could sleep the entire flight and they’d have something nasty to say. It’s a reflection of them snd not you or your child.

Why people don’t give their kids headphones on 6 am flight?

Because the flight was at 12:30pm? Thanks for playing.
