Awful mother on plane far worse than her kids

A mother of two has been a complete nightmare from start to finish on the Jetstar flight from Melbourne to Sydney, the Cazmanian Times can reveal.

Whilst her teenage children were plugged into their technology and causing no issues to the passengers around them, the mother, whose identity is still unknown, spent theĀ one hour and five minute flight constantly berating her children who didn’t appear to be doing anything wrong.

Fellow passenger Caroline Gough who was sitting across the aisle in seat 9B said: “the woman was a total nightmare. At one point she pulled the earphones out of her son’s ears and told him she was still furious with him for not telling her he’d finished the milk last Thursday. The poor kid mumbled that he was sorry, but the furious mother told him he wasn’t allowed to have his iPad for a week. The boy tried to protest but this just resulted in his iPad ban being increased to three weeks.”

Whilst the boy silently began to cry, the mother announced that she could no longer bear to sit next to him, unclipped his seatbelt and pushed him to get up and swap places with the man in 9C.

Caroline explained: “At first I thought how appalling it was that she was making random passengers swap seats with her children but then it transpired that this man was actually her husband. It was a bit awkward because I had remarked to him earlier that I thought she was really annoying and that I felt sorry for her kids. I guess I shouldn’t feel too awkward though because he did nod and agree with me.”

The tearful boy sat next to Caroline for the remainder of the flight. Caroline shared a packet of Cheezels and a Kit Kat with him and he cheered up considerably and told her intricate details about the world he’s building in Minecraft. “I literally didn’t understand a word of it,” said Caroline. “But I’m fairly sure I smiled and nodded in all the right places.”

  1. I Love the way this is written. Your observation skills are amazing. It’s a story that many people I think can relate to easily – e.g. the frustrations of being a parent and over reacting to situations, the injustices of being a teenager/child, the swapping over of roles -e.g. parent acting like a child and making comments to strangers about someone (and then realising they’re both related!). I feel empathy for the teenager, dad, you and Mum. Thanks for writing.

    1. And thanks very much for reading, I love to observe the people around me and write about them – they have no idea I’m doing it! Thanks for loving it, I hope you will come back and read more!
