Let me set you a scene: It’s finally the day of your big holiday. Your annual leave was approved, flights + accommodation booked, suitcase packed and you are bursting with excitement as you wait to board the plane. You hand the flight attendant your ticket with a smile and proceed to board the aircraft and settle down in your seat, secretly hoping that you get the whole row to yourself.
You order yourself a wine, essential, and start thinking about what movies you are going to indulge in while you blissfully await your arrival to your destination.
But then the sound of a crying baby breaks your little tranquil bubble and your face drops. For the rest of the flight the cries ring in your ears intermittently, disturbing your sleep and making it impossible to read.
If you are like me, you would never, EVER actually turn around and get mad at the poor parents who, travelling with a baby, are likely just as tired as you are right now (if not more) because it's certainly not their fault. But at the same time you paid a lot of money for this flight and wanted to get some sleep before you start your holiday.
