I sympathise with airline and other transport staff, with people manning reception desks, that work in hotels at attractions and other travel industry jobs who find themselves confronted by rude travellers or travellers that are just oblivious to the other people around them. …. this happened to me last year.
I was in Business Class on a short haul flight and was surprised to see that there was no division or curtain between ‘us’ and ‘them’, ordinarily this would not be a problem ……………that was until a family with different values to mine and the others seated around plonked themselves behind me. I don’t think it is just me being a grumpy Grey Traveller
I am tolerant of children when travelling especially the very young as they have no idea why their ears might be hurting or why they have to be restrained in a small area and why nothing much is familiar around them…. obviously they are going to cry…..but I was subjected to earsplitting screams for the entire journey. Even that I don’t mind to a certain extent as I can understand a child is upset and the parents are unable to placate.
However what I do question is when they allow their older children to constantly kick the seats in front aka mine! It made what should have been a pleasant journey into one that I needed to escape from quickly.
…..the noise and uproar appeared to continue right through to baggage reclaim. I would love to reclaim the money I stupidly spent on Business Class.
