Skippers Mom, I had a somewhat similar story, on my flight from San Juan to Boston. We had a kicker behind us,with an oblivious Mom. Her hubby and their other brat sat across the aisle from them. So, 2 oblivious parents saw their darling continuously kick our seats..Maybe I should have reclined all the way in this case, to make a point
The incredible lack of parenting, still bogles my mind. I adrdressed the issue with the flight attendant, and, she addressed the Mom, to no avail...A moron, yes she was...it kept up, and I was not about to deal with this the entire flight, or, till the little darling fell asleep,so I spoke up again....I was moved to business class for the duration, with the flight attendant shaking her head as well.
PS..things can get worse....
