babies cry.


sometimes babies cry on airplanes.

they are not doing this on purpose. they are not evil spawn trying to make your life impossible. they are BABIES. deal with it.

stop being such a donkey with your dirty looks, snarky eye rolls, and nasty comments to the poor mother breaking her back trying to smother said crying baby with bottles, goldfish and stuffed animals.

do you REALLY think she doesn’t notice her own child’s cry?

i’ll bet you 10 MILLION DOLLARS she wants it to stop more than all of us here on this plane.

so cut her a little slack please. this isn’t about YOU!

maybe even offer her a hand? make funny faces at the baby, or play hide n seek to make the baby feel more comfortable. it’s no wonder a baby cries on airplanes, i’ve seen how hostile the atmosphere becomes when a mother and young baby enter the cabin.

i doubt you’ll read this, but to the sweet, poor mom on flight 6061 to san francisco last thursday afternoon; i want to apologize for the gross and buffoon behavior of the cabin and crew. you did all you could to stifle your precious babe’s wails. he wasn’t a bad boy, he was tired and scared. your seatmates were the real infants.
