And considering that cmb53208 actually used the term "crotchfruit" in a serious manner is a perfect indication of the type of people that make a big deal of this complete non-issue. So with that, I exit this conversation.


And I'll use the term again: if you cannot keep your crotchfruit from screaming on a plane, Greyhound bus, train, city bus, etc. but expect the rest of us to just put up with your poorly behaved brat because hey, that's life, then do the rest of us a favor and stay the fark home.

No. What's a load of crap is the attitude of, "I am traversing the entire continent in five farking hours. My measly $300 ticket means that I am somehow superior to a parent who also paid $300 a ticket to take their young child somewhere.


You chose to have the kid. Not me. If the kid can behave properly, then by all means, bring him anywhere you want. If he can't, then you're going to have to live with the results of your choice to have kids and either teach him to behave properly (you know. . Be a parent) or keep him home. I and everyone else on the plane shouldn't have to put up with the results of your bad parenting.


And considering that cmb53208 actually used the term "crotchfruit" in a serious manner is a perfect indication of the type of people that make a big deal of this complete non-issue.

I didn't use that term. It has no bearing on what I said. Nice attempt to prejudice the discussion, though. Generally that's the tactic used by people who know they're dead wrong in what they're doing, and want to keep doing it anyway.

Kind of hard to stay off of airplanes for continental-wide trips, or get off of them halfway through if the kid starts being a loud little shiat. I'm more pissed at parents who drag their screaming, miserable animals to (non-kiddy) restaurants and movie theaters, and just tune out the constant assault they bleat in all directions. Get. The. Fark. Out. Your kid, your responsibility. Next time hire a babysitter.

Airplanes? There's a high threshold for tolerance. Waving a cowbell around is a big NO, but any rational person would agree with that. Kids cry - when they're stuck in a single seat for several hours, they cry harder. Nothing you can really do about it.

Constance Velocity:
That is not at all what that said. Simply: Stay off of planes and nice restaurants until your child can behave in those places. BAD parents drag their kids to inappropriate places and don't discipline their kids. Good parents keep their loud kids out of those places until they learn how to behave.


You know Constance, it's pretty pathetic that we have to break down the obvious into Goofus and Gallant terms these days. Pretty much explains why this debate is even happening.

Dinjiin: Make it pet free while you're at it. I recently had a trans-Atlantic flight where somebody brought a cat. About half-way across the Atlantic, it started crying. Two and a half hours of that crap, and earplugs didn't do much to help. Earplugs don't do much for barking dogs, either. Especially when you're trying to sleep.

I had to take my cat on a long trip in my car (because I was moving) and she always cries on car trips. I got the vet to prescribe some sedatives but I found out that after about 90 minutes the cat got tired of crying and just fell into a deep sleep anyway.

I ended up taking the sedatives. Is it wrong to steal your pet's medication?

FWIW, taking sedatives prescribed for an animal 1/10th your weight doesn't do a whole lot even when you triple the dosage but it did relax me.

Constance Velocity: hat is not at all what that said. Simply: Stay off of planes and nice restaurants until your child can behave in those places.

My only problem with this is that you really don't know how a little kid is going to act until you take them on the plane. Kids are kind of irrational like that. They can be saints in one situation and terrors in the next. What you mean is that parents shouldn't take their kids places until they are sure they can control them if the kid acts out. Unfortunately that's just not realistic for every parent. (Well the restaurant part is, but not that plane.)

You give childless people everywhere a bad name. Yes it sucks that kids and cry and be loud in areas where you can't leave. My office is in the loop in downtown Chicago and about every 20 minutes a train goes by. It's loud and exceptionally annoying because my building is old enough that it isn't very well soundproofed. By and large parents are doing what they can to prevent and mitigate the kid's behavior. Feel free to criticize the ones that aren't but it's liable to not accomplish anything.

apparently its just her personality and i shouldnt force her on to other people. she'll either grow out of it or have only a small number of ppl to interact with.


Wow. Would've thought Gymboree would be a bit much. Once she's steadily walking, I'd suggest takin' her to a small "play-date". Instead of takin' her directly to the other kids, let her watch them having fun for a while. Eventually, I'll be she'll get curious and try to wander over.

I agree, though, about really trying to "force" it. She OK with in-laws and other family?

If some baby vomits on you, that is definitely something you shouldn't have to deal with. Any parent shouldn't be pointing them your way in any case. I was referring to crying babies. I can deal with those pretty much all day, and I don't even sleep on planes. No one likes baby vomit
 
2010-10-13 04:10:43 PM  
Jobber8742:
Ah yes, because a baby crying has everything to do with your ability to parent. A baby with good parents never cries.


I won't say "never" but good parents will make an effort to quiet a kid in a place like that, an effort which doesn't involve a Farkin' cowbell.
 
2010-10-13 04:11:46 PM  
child-free airline will have my business for life. I don't care if your kids are too young to understand what's going on or how to deal with it, that's your responsibility as a parent. Sure, it's not fair but at the end of the day it's on the parents. Figure out a way to have your kid STFU and stop kicking my damn seat.

My measly $300 ticket means that I am somehow superior to a parent who also paid $300 a ticket to take their young child somewhere. This parent should be ashamed of letting their child mildly annoy me in a situation where most normal people can simply *ignore* the problem; in fact, they should just stay the fark home for the next three years, regardless of whatever reason they may to need to travel. Or, those second-class citizens can take a train and spend exponentially longer in transit for the same (or greater) cost. Bottom line, these people should facilitate my desire to not be mildly annoyed."

If you are over the age of 35, chances are your parents never took you anywhere near an airplane until you were at least 6. In very limited circumstances, it cannot be avoided, but the reality for most is that your precious snowflake isn't getting much out of his trip to see grandma at 14 months. When air travel wasn't cheap, parents appreciated that. They weren't shelling out those kinds of amounts for such folly.
 
2010-10-13 04:14:02 PM  
I have the best idea. Those of you who simply can not stand to be around children should not fly. Then, the only people left on airplanes will be people with children.

I mean coast to coast should only take three days of hard core driving and you can be content knowing that your delicate ears are being protected from screaming babies. And parents can be content knowing they aren't flying with a bunch of internet tough guys wailing about how HARD it is to deal with other people's kids. Win win for all concerned.

You will be able to hold on to your smug belief that you are not a gaping a$$hole as you cruise across our beautiful country safely enclosed in the peaceful confines of your car.

betsyjam: And parents can be content knowing they aren't flying with a bunch of internet tough guys wailing about how HARD it is to deal with other people's kids.

See, most of us who don't have kids aren't afraid to confront a parent whose child is misbehaving and causing everyone else to have an unpleasant flight. I'm not talking about infants here, I'm talking about pre-adolescent pukes whose enabler parents have not taught them that it's wrong to kick someone else's seat or that the correct thing to do on an airplane is sit quietly and speak softly, not sing stupid songs and make it sound like a goddamn 7th birthday party.

And the worst is the unattended minors. Had to sit on the bulkhead recently for a 3 hour flight, the 2 kids LITERALLY DID NOT SHUT THE fark UP FOR 1 MINUTE. About the most inane, banal shiat I've ever heard. The girl was bragging about how she was an expert at flying and the boy was trying to prove her wrong. For 3 straight hours. No shiat. Where are the parents? Flight attendants must hate having to be some annoying, spoiled brat's mom for 3 hours.
 
2010-10-13 04:19:39 PM  
KatjaMouse: Because parents don't seem to know this, I'm just going to restate. This works. It really does. And it's safe too. It relieves the pressure of the flight, makes the kids woozy and drowsy and more than likely makes them fall asleep. For the love of all that is holy, PLEASE pack this with the kids stuff for future flights.

I actually can tune out a crying baby completely. I say this in all seriousness. It's a technique, I suppose, but I can actually completely ignore a crying kid on an airplane.

The mother is a stupid ass for that cowbell shiat though. It's amazing that no one told her to knock that off. What an insufferable asshole.

Right now all the family that is important to me lives within a 2 hour drive (okay, my grandma and in-laws are 7 hours away, but still drivable). My parents plan on retiring down to Arizona. I told them if they plan on seeing my kids (when I have them) then they can fly or drive their butts up here because I'm not getting on a plane with my kids under the age of 6. My mom got pissed off at me, but my dad thought it was a good idea.

Like I said, normally kids don't bother me much, but I would have said something about the cowbell. THAT crosses the line and obviously those parents are asshats who care about only themselves.

90% of screaming kids on flights are screaming because they're bored. Parents, pack Benadryl or a portable DVD player/coloring book/whatever and plenty of snacks. Keep them occupied and you'll ensure everyone else has a pleasant flight.

Well, I was told by a friend of mine, who's a doctor and has a toddler that she travels with, that either Benadryl or a kid's helping of cough medicine is the magic potion. Just was passing it on.

"So, what is it with airline food, am I right people? And those oh-so-friendly stewardesses...oh except you can't call them stewardesses anymore, can you? No, now they're flight attendants. Which is kind of a silly thing to say, if you think about it. Flight. Attendant. Do they really attend to the flight? I mean, sorry Tammi with an "i", I don't think your liberal arts degree provided you with the necessary mechanical knowledge to prime and oil a Boeing 747! Hey, you're beautiful, people...

"And what's with those parents who bring their kids on the plane, huh? And then the kid screams all the way from Omaha to Sacramento, you know the kid. He's on every plane. That one kid...they just kind of pass him around from flight to flight. Kid's probably making six figures and here I am at the Yukk Factory in Duluth, right? Then again, you're here watching me, so what does that show you?

"Okay, so those kids on the plane, huh? Seriously, folks, if your must breed, I have a word for you...Greyhound. Keep your kids off the plane, because honestly, I don't care that you paid the same price I did to get on the flight, I only care that I paid what I paid to get across the country without hearing your little crotch-apple screech for the duration, kapish? Guess who's gonna be first off if the plane's gonna crash and we have to lighten the load, right? Hey! I love you guys! Tip your waitresses, they work hard! Good night and God Bless Duluth!!!"

That's because most parents feel entitled. "I had a kid, and it's more special than you, and so am I".


It's more like: my kids aren't exactly flying free, they are ticketed passengers paying the same fare as you. So unless you're going to start muzzling every passenger on the plane and dictating everyone's behavior, go be judgmental somewhere else.
