Who’s Right?

Hi this is Leslie Harris, and Anthony Bass who is a pitcher for the Toronto Blue Jays tweeted a complaint about United Airlines. His wife is pregnant, and she was traveling with two young kids. One of the kids spelled their popcorn, and the flight attendant told the pregnant woman to get down on her hands and knees and pick up the popcorn. Now where did the kid get the popcorn? From United. But I digress.

Anthony Bass tweeted, “The flight attendant at United just made my 22 week pregnant wife traveling with a 5-year-old and a 2 year old get on her hands and knees to pick up the popcorn mess by my youngest daughter. Are you kidding me?!?!”

However, a lot of people have clapped back at Bass, saying that the parent should be responsible for their kids.

I have mixed feelings about this. I always cleaned up after my own kids when I was traveling along with them. On the other hand, how much time would it have taken for the flight attendant to grab a dustbuster or some kind of sweeper? I know flight attendants are busy, but it seems they could have shown some kindness to a pregnant woman traveling with two young children.

But what do you think? Let me know in the Facebook comments
