Update: Erica Ehm and the mommy bloggers went to TOWN on giving me hell for this post. Thanks for the hits and personal attacks. I was stuck in an airport and these parents from Florida let their kids run ALL OVER THE PLACE. Who does that? I wasn’t attacking ‘every parent’.
“But should you find yourself in the presence of a family, try to avoid behaving like this girl. I’m thinking of bookmarking her site to show my daughter an example of how not to act in public. The tight close-ups of her sun-damaged face making rude expressions about a family committing such atrocities as wondering where they’ve put their boarding passes and worrying about running out of diapers during a delay do a disservice to urban hipster doofuses everywhere.

Hey, why don’t you show your daughter my site? And also the amazing things I’ve done? Then show her what you wrote about me and explain that?
I’ve decided to be annoying too. I’m using three outlets, ahem…airport asshole. Please don’t be offended by this post if you have kids. My parents used to travel with me heaps as a kid. If anything, feel sorry for me! I am a terribly creative person trapped in an airport with a bunch of misbehaved rascals. They are running all around the place, being loud, can’t hear the announcements, and the parents aren’t doing a thing!
“I’m gonna run out of diapers”
“this is why I never travel with kids” (the Mum said that)
“who has the boarding passes” (get it together! these are your kids people!)
“we got a connection, now we gon’ miss it” (everyone is missing connections)
“will they hold our flight?” (no, they don’t even really do that for celebrities! duh)
Oh great, now we’re boarding. Thank god. See you in Atlanta. Serious thunderstorm happening there. Love you byeeeeeeeeeee.
