Would I love it if they booked flights specifically for families?
Would I love it if everytime I went on a holiday there wasn't a screaming child somewhere on my transportation?
See the thing is...while I completely understand that people have children and that shouldn't stop them from travelling I don't quite understand why it should take away from my vacation....Lets go with the latest example....
On my trip the Phillippines there was a very young baby on the airplane who screamed the entire take off and landing. I know there isn't much you can do when they are that young but I can only ask why you brought such a young baby on a flight to begin with...
Then...same trip mind you...
25 minutes into a 2 1/2 hour cramped ferry ride this toddler starts to scream. I don't mean a little whiney give me what I want and I'll shut up. I MEAN FULL ON TEMPER TANTRUM SCREAMING TILL I AM BLUE IN THE FACE for the rest of the ride. What about her family? Oh right...they just put her to the side and let her do it and ignored her as she climbed all over each one of them screaming. So. I spent some of my vacation time....away from the 30 children that I teach that occasionally have screaming fits of their own listening to a kid scream for over 2 hours.
Tell me that I should be more sympathetic now. Please do.
When I fly to Orlando to visit my family I know better than to get annoyed because its the same city as Disney World. I'm the weirdo flying there alone....
I can't lie when I say I wish children weren't allowed on certain flights and certain transportation methods. Like there were adult only flights, train rides, boats, and pretty much any other activity I like to enjoy without a screaming child.
So what did we learn from all this?
If you have a child you know likes to throw tantrums please do us and yourself a favor and stay home till they learn to keep that shit at home.
