    My point of irritation is parents who let their kids watch videos without headsets. You can hear the irritating sounds all over the cabin. The parents are used to hearing the noise so they tune it out.

    Kind of how I currently tune out all the 'parent' bashers in the group.

    Well but in the other side we all know that the ear physiology in a presserised cabin is not the same on earth!! so a child is going to cry and we can not prevent this)) sometimes we need to be comprehensive too

    Couple years ago, we were doing around the world and on UA925 LHR-IAD leg I fell asleep and my 5-year old son sitting next to me barfed all over himself. The FA did not even bother waking me up! My son told me later that she took him to the lavatory washed his face and upper torso and washed his jacket also. When I woke up his jacket was clean and hanging to dry.

    Not by design, I was the jerk on that one! :eek: :)

    I don't consider myself a parent basher - I equally call out adults who watch movies without headsets because they are sharing the screen with their seatmate. Small babies and infants crying I can tolerate because I know they have ear issues. Small children don't understand their being confined for a long period of time and are not open to reasoning.

    I haven't personally witnessed it, but on the blogosphere I have read (and seen videos) where adults act more childish than kids ...

    For me it's better to fly with somebody(girlfriend). She's allways caring and it's cool
