Courteous parenting win.
@Limerickrolled, what're you talking about, it was obviously the baby who made that, see, it even says so
We need more people like this
@Jon Targaryen, if we had more people like this there would probably be less need for those bags because people would be more understanding.
Where's the booze???
Look, this is great and all, but when did everyone become such a b!tch that they can't understand that kids fvckinf cry? Parents shouldn't have to apologize everywhere they go for populating the earth while continuing to (try to) live normal lives.
@TheRealDonDraper, because if you are on a flight for more than a few hours, a baby that has bad parents who let it cry the whole time, even though it needs nothing and should go to sleep, is super freaking annoying, so these nice people apologized in advance.
@angrydwarf, I don't know if you're a parent or not, but a crying baby does not a bad parent make. Parents do what they can to help their baby not cry. You can't make babies do anything. Babies go to sleep when they want to. And if there is a very young baby on board, there is no way for them to clear their ears the way you and I can do. Their ears are hurting, so they get upset. I understand what these parents are doing, and I think it's a great gesture. What I'm saying though is the fault lies with all of the other asshats out there who can't realize "oh wow. That baby is in pain and has no way of coping. Poor baby. Hope it feels better." No. The response is usually "shut that damn baby up!" To which a parent would reply "oh, is the two hours you're spending around my crying baby too much for you to handle? I LOVE hearing my baby cry for hours on end!"
Sorry not sorry for the long post.
@TheRealDonDraper, while I agree that a person should not respond with "shut the baby up", I also don't feel the appropriate response from the parents should be "we have to deal with it, so should you". They chose to have kids and the other people chose not to (or yet at least). They also spent hundreds of dollars on a flight not picking seats specifically near children. It boils down to empathy both ways: towards the parents with a crying child (I do know how hard it is to get one to stop crying), but also to other people. Just cause you're on a flight together doesn't make your child their problem. So I think something like this is a sweet gesture.
@TheRealDonDraper, I don't have a problem with crying. It's toddlers and children kicking my fvcking seat that I have a problem with.
@TheRealDonDraper, I have more of an issue with kids who have parents next to them, letting it happen. I can confront an adult, not a kid.
@Kalam1ty, well sure. I also have a problem when adults do it, too.
@TheRealDonDraper, but when I start crying loudly on a plane they ask me to stop
@TheRealDonDraper, my grandmother raised four children. She says the "only" time one of them cried after the newborn stage was when her second child had an ear infection.
@Ajunta Pall, out of all the posts on here this one triggered an argument.
@Celiactic, argument? Nah. A simple discussion involving opposing views does not mean people are arguing. I was never upset. Just talking.
@TheRealDonDraper, I'm in a logic class and by definition that is an argument.
@Celiactic, Arguments typically consist of heated exchanges. Can't argue with logic (class) though, apparently.
@ A Sad Blow Job, I'm not disagreeing with you but the parents shouldn't have to give up enjoying something too just because they have a kid...im not going to not do something (like take a flight) just because my baby might offend some inconsiderate douche who's probably incapable of taking care of a child themselves...I used to hate hearing a baby cry but now that I have one of my own I understand a lot more that baby's do just cry sometimes or it takes a minute to figure out what your kid is trying to tell you
@Spartan133, but you see, "inconsiderate douche, who's probably incapable of taking care of a child" is no different of a douchey presumptuous attitude to have than "shut the baby up". The point I'm getting to is one persons needs/emotions are no more valid than another's, and that's why this topic is always complicated. I don't disagree with you either; I would think someone telling the parents "shut the baby up" is an inconsiderate douche, I personally would have a similar reaction to what someone else said, "aww poor thing, I hope it's ok". Nor am I saying parents shouldn't get to fly (or whatever it may be). I am saying that just because one has a tiny human, their wants/needs are not more important than other people's. So for example, if parents wanted to go watch a movie and their child was crying throughout, should the other people in the theater have to deal with it, even tho they can't hear the film? Sorry but if they stay in the theater, those parents are inconsiderate too.
@ A Sad Blow Job, true but a plane flight is different than movie
@Spartan133, oh definitely. (I work at a theater and have seen that very thing happen, so it's not a baseless example). But back to the plane, I'd say if the parents couldn't get their child to stop crying, they should at least be apologetic to those around them and the others should be sympathetic to them. Negative attitudes will just make everything worse. Everyone should be more empathetic and understanding.
@ A Sad Blow Job, yeah sad part is most people wouldn't be understanding though...and I used to work at a theater as well lol glad I don't anymore though
@Spartan133, lol yeah, I'm finishing college this year and ready to leave it for good.
No titties here. Keep on scrollin
Suuuuure its alll good when kids gives candies to strangers, but what happens when i give candies to kids
But I'm allergic to chocolate
Clever but I when I do have them, I wouldn't take my kids on an airplane that young.
@Rattlehead Vision, What if you're moving across the world?
@Rattlehead Vision, join the long line of people who say "when I have kids I wont, they wont etc"... sure you may actually stand by it but I can tell you know when if you have children, thats not how it works... you may want a god damn holiday lmao, hell you may even need it.
@dibbysound, as a member of a family who travels many distances towing a camper, I can guarantee that I'm not flying with an infant for vacation
@Rattlehead Vision, nothing can ever be guaranteed
