Little Monster

in Baby & Kid Stories

Last summer me and some friends went on an incredible vacation in Europe, though there is one leg of the journey I will never forget – when me and one of my friends took a crowded flight from Barcelona to Seville on a “budget airline.” We were both already extremely tired from the night before but real sleep was impossible due to the tiny seats.

However, the real nightmare was a small child in the row in front of me. He was the progeny of a young attractive single women who obviously had never learned the concept of saying no. For the entire flight the little monster would run up and down the aisle screaming before coming up to me a constantly shaking my chair. I kept waiting for one of the stewardesses to order him back to his seat, but for some reason they didn’t seem to mind him. I know some Spanish but not enough to express my dissatisfaction with the situation.

I do feel terrible for you as someone who has flow trans-atlantic and within Europe because budget carries are small and can be exhausting. With that said I also commend you for not expressing your dissatisfaction because as someone who speaks 4 languages I not dare complain when I haven't taken the time to fully engage in a culture and language. My recommendation for your next European excursion, buy a 10 pass train ticket; sure it takes longer but I assure you it will save you the headache of unruly passengers and you'll get some sleep!

easy, look the kid in the eyes and tell them you will bite off their finger if they come close to you again.. you will not have problems with the kid again just make sure their parents don't hear you
