Redeye flights suck
OK. I know the concept of the redeye flight has been around, well, since commercial aviation began. "Gotta get there now. Must get there now. Even if I get in at 4:42 am." Yadda yadda yadda.
But WHY the hell would you bring a 6 MONTH OLD child on a redeye flight? Christ on a shetland pony, man! That damned child didn't shut up from the time we lifted off the tarmac at SFO until long after I hobbled as fast as I could towards the baggage claim at CLT. Keerrrist.
PFFT! to all you people who think that kids belong on airplanes. I say, put 'em down in the cargo hold with the other baggage. They'll live. It's not THAT cold down there.
