From Reddit: Thanks for the candy little baby on a plane, I'll use it to plug my ears if you don't mind.
At first I rolled my eyes as this mom who entered the airplane with a newborn started walking the aisle, giving everyone a packet of sweets and telling each person, "my baby wants to give you this", but then I thought, damn, your baby is literate? And how considerate too.
From Comments: As much as I think it's considerate of the parents to do this, it also really pisses me off. Writing a note from your 18month old kid is really quite passive aggressive. The kid wants to be on this flight less than you do, and doesn't know how to pop its ears to stop the pain, so fuck you, parents. I'd rather they said sorry, I have to bring my child on a plane. I realise it's a pain for everyone involved so here's a chocolate/ earplugs/ whatever. Blaming it on a baby isn't cute, it's a cop- out.
