Mum With Baby On Flight Provides Goodie Bags For 200 Passengers

Long haul flights aren't fun, unless you can afford to fly business or first class, in which case they're fucking amazing... I imagine.

The journey can be made infinitely worse if you are unfortunate enough to have to share your flight with a stag party or crying baby, as neither are keen on being quiet and not shitting themselves.

Wary of the inconvenience her baby may cause, one mum prepared 200 goodie bags for her fellow passengers ahead of their ten-hour flight from Seoul, South Korea to San Francisco, USA.

The goodie bags contained sweets and ear plugs, plus a note written on behalf of her baby.

The message read: "Hello, I'm Junwoo and I'm four months old.

"Today, I am going to the US with my mom and grandmom to see my aunt.

"I'm a little bit nervous and scary because it's my first flight in my life, which means that I may cry or make too much noise.

"I will try to go quietly, though I can't make any promises. Please excuse me.

"So my mom prepared a little goodie bag for you! It has some candies and earplugs. Please use it when it's too noisy because of me.

"Enjoy your trip. Thank you."

What a top gesture from the anonymous mother, and a great tactical move too - 'cos what kind of monster is going to grumble about a little bit of crying when they've got complimentary sweets?

Turns out though that the super conscientious mother had nothing to worry about, as Junwoo didn't boohoo once.

Dave Corona - who was one of the passengers on board the flight - shared pictures of his goodie bag on Facebook along with the message: "On a ten-hour flight from Seoul Korea to San Francisco, a mother handed out more than 200 goodie bags filled with candy and ear plugs, in case her four-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."

The mother was widely praised in the comments, and rightly so. Here's hoping she starts a trend whereby all parents are expected to make a goodwill gesture whenever they bring their child somewhere it shouldn't be. For example, if you must bring your child to the pub, make sure you get everyone a pint.

It's the least you could do, really.
