Pardon me for being somewhat cynical and perhaps rude, but I couldn’t help but laugh after seing this video. This lady, Wendy Slaughter (heh) got kicked off a flight because her kids were being unruly. She even says, “the children were a little out of control on the flight…” If a mother says that I can only imagine how it really was. This all sounds to me like a case of a lady that has zero control over her kids, something which is far too common and very sad when in public. Don’t get me wrong, I feel for the fact that her kids have “problems,” but that’s no excuse for letting them run wild.
This whole story seems to me like something out of Jerry Springer, from the names, to the sister, to the grandmother. Sorry, but if this is what’s being reported on the news I can only imagine what it must have been like to be on that flight.
Heh, and then we wonder why Southwest has the reputation among some for being the “kettle” airline.
