Mom Has a Lot of Nerve

in Baby & Kid Stories

My husband and I were flying with our kids who were then four and eighteen months old. A woman who was sitting with her large two year old allowed the child to run up and down the aisle for most of the flight unattended as she watched a movie. When the FA told her to strap the child into her seat which was on her lap, the toddler began to wail.

After five minutes of “BE QUIET, CASEY… SHUT UP, CASEY!” the woman proceeded to lean over and tap my husband on the shoulder, gesture to our 18 month old who was sitting next to him, and say, “Can you sit in his seat, put him on one of your knees, and let me have his seat for her? Thanks, Hon.”

We politely declined.

Pretty simple, "No." Your fat kid is not my problem

I hate this breed of entitled parent! They expect everyone else to baby sit their child! Good on you for declining, you paid for your seats, they are yours
