If you are on a flight with a crying baby or stag party, your journey might infinitely worse. And at that time, you really want to a solution appearing like this mum.
Wary of the inconvenience her baby may cause, one mum prepared 200 goodie bags for her fellow passengers ahead of their ten-hour flight from Seoul, South Korea to San Francisco, USA.
The goodie bags contained sweets and ear plugs, plus a note written on behalf of her baby.
The message read: “Hello, I’m Junwoo and I’m four months old.
“Today, I am going to the US with my mom and grandmom to see my aunt.
“I’m a little bit nervous and scary because it’s my first flight in my life, which means that I may cry or make too much noise.
“I will try to go quietly, though I can’t make any promises. Please excuse me.
“So my mom prepared a little goodie bag for you! It has some candies and earplugs. Please use it when it’s too noisy because of me.
“Enjoy your trip. Thank you.”
What a top gesture from the anonymous mother, and a great tactical move too – ‘cos what kind of monster is going to grumble about a little bit of crying when they’ve got complimentary sweets?
Turns out though that the super conscientious mother had nothing to worry about, as Junwoo didn’t boohoo once.
Dave Corona – who was one of the passengers on board the flight – shared pictures of his goodie bag on Facebook along with the message: “On a ten-hour flight from Seoul Korea to San Francisco, a mother handed out more than 200 goodie bags filled with candy and ear plugs, in case her four-month-old child cried during the flight.
“A very touching gesture by the mother but as you know when you have kids expect the unexpected. Not a peep out of the kid.”
The mother was widely praised in the comments, and rightly so. Here’s hoping she starts a trend whereby all parents are expected to make a goodwill gesture whenever they bring their child somewhere it shouldn’t be. For example, if you must bring your child to the pub, make sure you get everyone a pint.
