A Letter To The Person Sitting In Front Of Her Son On The Airplane

Travelling can be a stressful task. Although the destination is usually desired, the long winding trip through the airport and the hassle of boarding an airplane are all things that a tourist doesn’t want to deal with. But these issues are only compounded when you travel with a child and you don’t have your partner with you.

And that is precisely what happened to this unnamed mother who only penned her letter as ‘a protective and tired mother.’

In her scathing letter, she directed it at the person who was sitting in front of her son on the airplane.

She started off her letter with: ‘I apologize for my son pushing your seat. Traveling can be stressful, and I know that it’s annoying. But with all due respect, would you please sit back down and mind your own business?’

‘What gave you the right to discipline my 3-year-old son? I am his mother, and I’m pretty sure that’s my job.’

The mother went on to list the problems that the man in front of her son committed. She said that he called her son ‘sweetheart’ because he has long hair.

She continued: ‘the second mistake you made was bringing too much attention to the situation. You have poked the bear, and he now thinks it’s funny to kick your seat. The third mistake you made was pissing ME off by addressing him and not me — your only hope.’
