I was on a Southwest flight for work once in a window seat (my usual preference, I tend to nap on planes and don't enjoy being woken up everytime someone at the window needs to get up to use the bathroom).

Sitting next to me ended up being a mother holding her infant baby. I've dealt with this before, so I was prepared for it with a headset and some music to drown out the vagina monsters cries. Sure enough, she let the baby crawl all over my space including laptop with a few sheepish apologies and passive aggressive statements like "She really likes the window!". Sorry, bitch, but I won't be white knight accommodating your breathing DNA turd today, so after the second time she said this I grinned and replied, "So do I!", put on my headset, and promptly went to sleep.

If the kid had continued to touch me or my property I would sure as fuck have gotten a flight attendant ASAP and complained. Probably would have gotten thrown off in today's world.

I had some little gypsy woman sitting in my seat on an airline once. I told her I had the window seat and she started pointing at the window as though I was supposed to understand what the fuck that meant. I pretty quickly figured out she wanted to sit in the window seat. She kept feigning not speaking English and refusing to move so I stood there an loudly said, "Yes that is the window. You're in my seat." This went on for a couple of minutes until finally she relented and moved to the middle seat. Flying removes every ounce of humanity I might have on a good day.

When other people act like animals they do not deserve to be treated like humans.

Did she ignore you for the rest of the flight or did she retaliate in anyway? I'm just curious.

I have been through that as well. 3 year old kid was in the middle seat and at some point decided to start screaming like someone burned her with a hot poker. The Mexican mother put headphones on and let her scream, much to the chagrin of everyone on the plane. Finally a white woman behind us came up to the kid with candy and she quit crying. The mother didn't care one way or the other. For a little while people thought she was with me since we were in the same row and I explained to everyone within ear shot - "I have no idea who these people are. Don't blame me."

Christ today you would have been tackled by an air marshal and charged with a felony of some shit.

"If the kid had continued to touch me or my property... "

...

“In a covenant...among proprietor and community tenants for the purpose of protecting their private property, no such thing as a right to free (unlimited) speech exists, not even to unlimited speech on one’s own tenant-property. One may say innumerable things and promote almost any idea under the sun, but naturally no one is permitted to advocate ideas contrary to the very covenant of preserving and protecting private property, such as democracy and communism. There can be no tolerance toward democrats and communists in a libertarian social order. They will have to be physically separated and removed from society.

Preferably with a helicopter.

I had someone sit their tard next to me. A trio of three one being full blown downs were on the plane, any courteous person would have sat with the defect and put the normal person next to the stranger.

Nope had a drooling rocking mess from Atlanta to LA next to me.

FYI, I think that was Chelsea Clinton. I can see how you could make that mistake though.

People with Downs syndrome are probably nicer people than you.

That wouldn't take a whole lot of effort.

Baby or 300lber spilling into your seat? I hate flying.

Delta should be able to boot anyone for any reason. This however was a great reason, i might fly delta from now on. Fuck that entitled cunt, "it's bullshit that i have to sit in the back of the plane" no it's not, first class costs extra money, you didn't pay it, hence the coach seat, suck it the fuck up.

Shit I prefer the back on the plane, you can keep on eye on what is going on.

I'm like you, I take the back row. I'm doomed anyway on the flying Greyhound bus these days.

Your chances of survival are also higher in the back in case of a crash.

Pretty sure any business in the US is allowed to refuse service at any time, provided they offer refund (unless otherwise specifically stated somewhere when purchasing tickets)

Been there, wifey gave the spawn some infant sinus medication and he went to sleep juuuuust in time for the flight to start... aaaaaaand it was delayed for two hours. Not enough time to give him another dose but plenty of time for him to be wide awake and scream the entire 90 minute flight.

[–] PrettyBigDouche 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

I propose airlines should wait until the plane is airborne before booting passengers.

[–] Ozzsanity 1 points 3 points (+4|-1) ago 

Larvae should not be allowed on planes.

[–] Totenglocke 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

Or planes should have a separate soundproofed section in the back for people who insist on bringing hellspawn. They can annoy the shit out of each other while leaving everyone else alone.

Any one else watch th video and wonder when the screaming started? I heard her raise her voice in complaint of being kicked off but never a scream just some bitching about a baby. Rude as fuck but not screaming. Maybe the video doesn't show it all.
