"What? This is the 4th flight I've taken this month with this car seat."
"Lemme check and see if it has an FAA sticker. Nope. No Sticker. That thing is not getting on my plane."
Yes, the flight attendant called it her plane.
I argued for like 3 more minutes, but I was in a vulnerable state and my kids needed me, so I had to fly with Ezra non-restrained. Which was a nightmare, he screamed for over two hours. Fortunately we were the last 6 seats on the plane.
Unfortunately the same flight attendant that I argued with, was the same flight attendant who was in charge of the beverage cart. She served a drink to everyone on the entire plane except for my and my five children. No joke. She got to us, made eye contact, and then pulled the cart back to the front of the plane. I sat there in shock trying to figure out what to do. My kids didn't even notice so I decided not to put up a fight. I had fully intended to send an email to the customer service department, but I had actually forgotten about the entire incident until this morning when I heard about the Alec Baldwin wordswithfriendsonaplane-gate.
Dear Alec, you and I are sympatico. Children are rude thoughtless little pigs, flying is as bad as the Greyhound bus, it's hard when you get singled out for being awesome, and Words With Friends is the best.
Way to go Baldwin, you came out ahead on this one. I agree with you on all points, except for that all my gym teachers were pretty nice. Especially Coach whats-his-name who always gave me all that personal attention helping me with my golf swing.
