A Man and His Wife Had a Miserable Flight when The Family Sat in Front Kept Disrupting Them, Finally They Decided Enough Was Enough

A man was on a flight with his wife, seated behind a family consisting of a mother, father, and a young daughter. Several incidents occurred during the flight, which led to discomfort and irritation for the couple. Here is what they had to say:

Reclining Seats

Upon being seated, the mother and the young child immediately reclined their seats into the man and his wife’s space, even though the child did not make use of the recline feature.

The man and his wife experienced immediate discomfort, lacking space due to the reclined seats in front of them. “The mom gave me nasty looks because when she forcefully reclined her seat, it slammed into my knees and probably hurt her back”, the man recounted.

Despite finding the woman’s actions selfish and rude, the couple decided that they wouldn’t react negatively. “We did not say/do anything and just kept to ourselves”, the man explained.

Kicking the Seat

Producing further discomfort for other passengers, the young child began repeatedly kicking the seat in front of them with significant force. “Not just innocent kicking, but pounding on the seat”, remarked the man.

Adding another string to her bow of annoyance, the child began to watch movies without using headphones. Thankfully, a flight attendant intervened, but the mom reacted negatively to this request.

The father of the family, who had so far not bothered the couple, stood up and turned off the air vents over his seats. He did this without asking the passengers in front of him, which the couple found rude and inconsiderate.

In a final act of rudeness, the mother repeatedly attempted to close the man’s window shade, despite it being daytime and the window not exposing anyone to direct sunlight. She did not ask permission to do this, and it was not her window.

Paying for a View

The man and his wife wanted to keep the shade open as they had paid for a window seat specifically to enjoy the view. After several further unsuccessful attempts to close the shade, the mom expressed frustration, citing her daughter’s need to sleep.

A Witty Suggestion

In an attempt to kill two birds with one stone, the man thought of a witty solution: “We told her she could un-recline her kid’s seat and the window would no longer be in her eyes as the seat would block it. She did not do this and was very angry with us.”

In the end, the man stuck with his guns and did not put down the window shade due to the series of events that had occurred. However, he began to feel guilty, wondering whether he should have complied with the woman’s requests to let the child sleep.

The Internet’s Opinion

The man chose to tell his story online, wondering what other people thought. One reader was so frustrated with the mother’s actions that a comment written in lowercase simply did not suffice. “The passenger SITTING IN the window seat has SOLE CONTROL over the shade, FULL STOP”, the commenter raged. “Her kid can sleep AT NIGHT.”

Miserable People

Within the online thread, there wasn’t a single positive remark addressed toward the offending family. “These people are the kind of nasty family that leaves a slime of misery in their path wherever they go”, someone wrote. “Good for you for standing up to them.”

Kids These Days

One commenter even used the family’s behavior to draw a comparison of the state of the world today. “This is why people can’t stand children nowadays”, they complained. “When I was little there were “well-mannered children” and “not well-mannered children”. Now it’s either “well-mannered children” or simply “uncontrolled behavior children”. It’s a nightmare.”
