Screaming Kids and Aeroplanes.
Editors note: While I don’t have children, I certainly feel for any parents who find themselves in this situation. My hat goes off to you. It’s got to be a tough situation, but you guys have a way of keeping your cool that I’m not sure I’ll ever have.
Ahhgggh! Ahhgggg! Hhhhm…hmmh….hrrgh…AHHGGG!
It’s as if an exorcism is being performed at 30,000 feet. And better yet, the demonic cleansing is happening 2 feet from my head.
The shrieks and screams, akin to fingers on a chalkboard, slice through my body and overshadow a young Mick Jagger’s voice.
‘Surely there must be heading spinning and vomiting occurring behind me,’ I think. Just then Beth leans over and says, “Isn’t she so cute?”
Glancing back through my seat slit, I’m shocked at what I see. No puke, no bulging eyes and certainly no heading spinning, only a red-headed Madeline with soft green eyes and rosy cheeks.
As I turn back around, I hear the flight attendant jokingly say to the parents, “Oh, she’s a spicy one,” and then offer them complimentary drinks, before handing little Madeline some pretzel sticks.
It’s quiet now. The pretzel sticks must have worked. Though, we may just be in the eye of the storm. In my new found silence, the situation got me thinking: As a passenger, how do you deal with a crying child on the plane?[polldaddy poll=5553872]
