I don't follow your reasoning. People usually adopt when they fail to
make their own babies, so she's not a breeder.

BTW: All of my loooong flights during vacation had kids of various
ages on them. Every child was so well behaved (right down to the
infant) we barely knew they were there. I don't think my own kids
would have done as well on such long flights at their ages.


On a recent flight there was a PYV couple with their hell spawn. The
little POS was screaming so loud that I seriously considered contacting
the police to have them arrested for assault. Not unexpectedly the PYVs
were too self absorbed to give a damn about the other passengers on the
flight. Were it my hell spawn doing that I would have quieted it down a
hell of a lot faster and then actually apologized to the surrounding
passengers. But that's just non self absorbed, non egocentric, courteous

On my flight down to NOLA last month there was a toddler in the seat in front
of me. Her ears hurt the whole flight from atlanta to nola and she shrieked in
pain and confusion. The mother tried to calm her to no avail. You could tell
she was mortified. She tried to apologize to me and I just told her not to
worry, kids get scared and upset. I don't know why people get so offended by
upset children. This kid was shrieking to break the sound barrier but I didn't
take it personally.

I was more offended by the two 'adults' two rows behind me who kept arguing
and insulting and yelling at each other over some perceived slight at the

Poor Impulse Control.

The incident I mentioned was mid flight, pressurization and
depressurization were apparently not issues. The damn dog (I hate dogs)
in the row behind me was better behaved than the PYV's hell spawn with
just a couple yips during the flight.
