ROCKABYE BABY ... AT 30,000 FEET


It was a case of the Screaming Meanies on United Flight #167 to Los Angeles last night as an Energetic Young Toddler literally screamed his way through the entire six-hour flight. "I've heard babies screaming on flights before, but this is ridiculous," said the woman sitting next to me. "Yes," I agreed, "It gives a new meaning to the word nonstop." While the rest of us watched in amazement, the child's father simply smiled at his son, offered a few gentle words of encouragement, and donned a pair of noise cancellation headphones. The screaming didn't stop until we came in for a landing, at which point the toddler -- worn out from the whole ordeal -- fell fast asleep ...!

That would have drove me insane, non-stop for 6 hours. The father should have been more comforting. (Hugs)Indigo
