Ian O'Doherty: Sorry, this is a tot-free zone
I will never, ever, as long as I live, forget a flight myself and the missus endured. Frankly, if the pilot had come on and said we were about to crash I would have been surprisingly ambivalent about the whole thing.
For seven hours across the Pacific, we had to listen to a child screaming its lungs out and jumping up and down. After three hours of this, I finally snapped and told her mother to take the kid into the toilet where its shrieking would at least be lessened -- and of course, the other passengers thought I was a monster.
