A flight experience can go two ways – good or bad. Flying can be a stressful, pleasant or annoying. The annoying part comes when you cannot relax because of some kind of disturbance on it: off the top of my head – a crying baby. This is always a fear everyone traveling on a flight has. There is not much that can be done to calm a crying baby on a flight because they don’t understand the changes they feel in their ears and there is really no way of distracting them or telling them that it will all go away soon.
This mother, traveling on a 10-hour flight from Seoul, Korea, to San Francisco was being very cautious when she gave out 200 pairs of earplugs along with candy to all the passengers on the flight.
Yes, to all of them!
She had her four-month-old baby with her, and she was all set in preparation to not annoy her co-passengers because of a potentially bad experience they could have with a crying baby around.
The mother packed the earplugs and candy in cute little gift bags and handed them to each of the passengers as she entered the flight. On the bags, there was a message that read “I may cry or make too much noise. I will try to go quietly, though I can’t make any promises… Please excuse me.”
She took so much of effort to make sure that everyone had a happy and comfortable flight and that her baby would not be the reason for a bad experience. But to everyone’s surprise, that little four-month-old cute thing did not make a sound that could be defined as crying or troubled throughout the duration of the flight.
Yep, all that effort in vain.
But this gesture of hers was admired and appreciated by all her co-passengers and they all were very impressed by her concern for all of them, had the baby decided to destroy all eardrums on the flight.
One passenger wrote on social media, “On a Ten-hour flight from Seoul Korea to San Francisco, a mother handed out more than 200 goodie bags filled with candy and earplugs, in case her 4-month-old child cried during the flight. A very touching gesture by the mother but as you know when you have kids expect the unexpected.
Not a peep out of the kid.”
