Worse Case Scenarios

Current Location: Changi Airport, Singapore/ 1°17′35.0″N 103°51′21″W
On Layover, en-route to Medan, Indonesia

I don't know what's worse:

  • Giving birth to Octuplets
  • Dropping the soap in a jail house shower
  • Having your colon checked/Ovaries for the ladiez
  • Finding out you're a member of the Jackson family
  • Being interviewed for a job by Donald Trump
  • Realizing you've forgotten your Malaria pills while in the jungle


Being on a flight from Vancouver to Singapore for 21 hours, sitting beside a lady and her 3 month old baby girl. Her melodic screams echo through the cabin, ripping apart any hopes of maintaining sanity. And to make matters worse, now that baby has stopped crying, she poops. Mom snores, fast asleep.

I don't tell me.

how is it possible to sleep through your own baby crying? i've never been able to sleep through them blinking!
she must have been drugged for the flight.

I would have poisoned her drink.

The last time I was on the flight from Hong Kong to Toronto - some ungodly number of hours - there were three children under the age of two within a two seat radius of me.

I feel your pain.
There should be some law against this...

The length of flight time (21 hours!)could indeed make one feel tired and irritated. But one should not complain. Given the economic crisis we are in, in some cases corporations could , perhaps,find locals to do the job. I hear, by the way, a lot of good things about Singapore and its people's capabilities.

I can't decide. I'm laughing too hard.


Glad you made it safely.

that's pretty bad, Ron.
I'm pretty speechless.

You poor thing!

So I guess crying the entire time and pooping your pants is out of the question for pay-back?

Desert Rat said...

UGH, horrible! Hopefully the trip back is much better!

I've never been able to sleep through one of my children crying. Or let them sit in there poo.

I gota say though, the worse one for me would have to be, would defenitely be the giving birth to Octuplets. Two is plenty for me!!

Dropping the soap gets my vote.

Hang in there, man.


John said...

Dude, did you try requesting for a seat change or was it a full flight?

At least you only had 1 screaming and pooping monster. Be thankful that you didn't have another one on the other side of your seat.

I vote for the soap too.

Diana Saw said...

ah! will you be stopping by Singapore on your way back? I'm still in Sg until next week. If you're in town I can take you around!

Oh, it could be worse Ron. You could have ended up siting next to the mom and her octuplets. That's 8 times the poop and 8 times the melodic screams. Consider yourself lucky.
