I have no words.

Who the fuck indeed. Someone who is a massive tit, and a selfish one at that.

Eughh, perhaps someone like my husband. <still angry he got ds one 2 weeks ago; bane of my life>

Thankfully I was only on said train 4 minutes cos I am too tired to walk to next bit.

But really?????

Notmyrealname855 Tue 05-Mar-19 14:09:47

That is terrorism! Seriously who’d do this angry

Also hate when a child has an iPad etc and no headphones, had baby shark playing on a train I was on for FOUR hours last year angryangryangry The parents slept..

Someone begging for an ‘accidental’ whack around the head with my very heavy bag I should imagine...

I kind of almost admire their imperviousness to all that is right and decent: it must be very liberating.

The same type of person who gives their 4 year old a recorder in Tesco.


The same squawking note for 20 mins while the mum did a full trolley shop without batting an eyelid.

I had just got my child to fall asleep in the buggy and had to leave in fear he would wake up.

OMG I would be incandescent with rage.

If I was on the journey for a while, I might be tempted to sit next to them and play some thrash metal at full volume on my phone.

Bil took dd shopping last week and bought her a four pack of harmonicas (toy ones but still fucking irritating). We have 4 dc, I used to quite like bil.....

Maybe the same person who bought my ds a lovely new bike...complete with 3 very loud different sirens. I.e fire,ambulance, police.
Luckily ds is noise sensitive so doesn’t really like having them on..thank fuck for that


The same person who invented toddler shoes that squeaked like dog toys.

What the actual fuck?!

The proud performance parent that gave their dc a tambourine in the library.

Vulpine Tue 05-Mar-19 20:14:13

I'd ask them to not play it. Politely of course

I found, as a parent, I became sort of immune to the noise my children made. I just tuned it out.

Which is just as well, because at 15 my daughter plays piano, trombone and DRUMS.

Oakmaiden Tue 05-Mar-19 20:15:18

But, you know, in answer to your question... a sadist?

DeltaFlyer Tue 05-Mar-19 20:17:04

The same type of moron who would let their child use a skipping rope in the local Wetherspoons hmm

What an excellent idea to get a carriage to myself. Pity my children are too old to get away with it.

Redshoeblueshoe Tue 05-Mar-19 20:21:43

Witchend that's exactly what I was thinking

John470322 Tue 05-Mar-19 20:25:29

It is probably the person who booked a seat in the quiet coach with a baby who played with annoying loud toys non-stop for three hours. well not non-stop because Mummy spent lots of time speaking very loudly and clearly telling him how clever he was to make that noise (I never book the quiet coach but on that trip it was the only seat available)

HomeMadeMadness Tue 05-Mar-19 20:26:45

Someone who hates humanity.

InfiniteCurve Tue 05-Mar-19 21:11:46

Just grin
Was the child any good? Maybe bright conversation and hints on how to improve would help.

SurgeHopper Tue 05-Mar-19 21:13:21

Can I ask how old the child was?

SurgeHopper Tue 05-Mar-19 21:14:24

My mate once gave my 2 year a old a trumpet 'to use on the plane'


We didn't.

I see your train tooting and raise you.....
Castenets on an aeroplane.

I kid you not. Thankfully parent had sense to remove the castenets after take off but it was quite a while of it.
