The last few years have revealed that many of our fellow travelers are secretly horrible people. On a recent flight one traveler may have taken the cake with his disgustingly childish behavior. See the video here.
The last several years of travel have revealed that there are gobs of horrible people lurking in secret around us. The travel freakout has become a trope of its own as stressed-out travelers routinely lose their ever-loving minds over nonsensical things.
The most recent entrant into the hall of losers comes from a Southwest Airlines flight that had to be diverted after an unhappy passenger pitched a fit over a crying baby.
The event, which was captured on video and shared on TikTok, shows the smirking cameraman filming over his shoulder as the disgruntled passenger in question is going on and on about a baby that’s been crying for 30+ minutes.
His tantrum becomes so obscene and vile that the flight crew intervenes and eventually the plane diverts, disturbing everyone’s day.
The crying baby is never fun. Having once been the parent of a child losing his mind on our 6 hour flight to Hawaii, I have a great deal of sympathy for parents in this situation. If the parent is trying their best, it’s usually not worth getting fussy about. Occasionally, a parent will let their kid run wild or make no effort and in those situations, it may be acceptable to ask a flight attendant to intervene.
But, in most cases, it’s not worth it. Suck it up and endure the flight. Kids can’t control this and there could be any number of reasons causing the behavior. Just be an adult. Unlike this idiot who, frankly, behaved worse than the baby.
