Welcome to "Stewardess Rants & Raves" – a blogging vent sessions based on my bizarre life as a flight attendant. Read about how I deal with the general public in one of the most stressful situations – air travel. Please forgive me in advance for my sarcasm.
NOOOO you DIDNNNN’T! Honestly how do people think these things are appropriate?
Ok, I don’t really understand all the mommy/kids stuff – based off of lack of experience. But I do have some simple common sense that I feel some people are lacking now-a-days. Like common sense not to bring my child’s training pee-pee toilet on an airplane. To use. During the flight.
Now I am sure this family was in the middle of a crucial week of potty training success on their son, but honestly, is he going to forget everything that he learned about his little pee-pee seat during a 3-hour flight? Heaven forbid he doesn’t! I am sure that is why you decided to bring along his pee-pee seat and have him go right then and there as you set it up in your airplane row of seats.
Yep, he did his business right in the middle seat, surrounded by people drinking their ginger ales and cokes. Innocent people just trying to get from point A to point B.
YAY! Good boy goes pee-pee in the potty!
Now you bring your yellow liquid filled plastic toilet to the back of the plane looking for the bathroom. (Thank God there was no turbulence.) But, seriously… don’t you think you should have looked for the bathroom about 5 minutes ago to take your son there instead of pee-peeing right in his seat?
You’re weird lady. Keep this up and your son is going to be just as weird.
Conclusion: I am happy you are teaching your son an important life lesson. But don’t do it on an airplane. Or in public! It is not going to be normal for him to go pee-pee right there in his airplane seat forever and ever. I’d love to see him in 20 years – as a business traveler peeing in 15A because that’s what mommy taught him to do! Seriously people, get with it.
Disclosure: I want to let you in on a little piece of my life, and this is why I am starting this feature. I hope you enjoy my stories… with a grain of salt of course! My travel stories are in no way a reflection on my employer.
