Feb 25th 2011 6:24PM I'm curious as to how many people out there who are critical of single mothers actually grew up in a single-mother household. My mother divorced my father when I was in fifth grade, and it was absolutely the right decision to make. My father lived in another state for the rest of my childhood, so visits were few and far between.
My mother raised my sister and I in a home where we knew we were loved, knew we were expected to do our best, and knew that we didn't have any limits as to what we could do. My sister is now a doctor, and I became a broadcast journalist. Meanwhile, I have friends who were raised in families with both parents... who are still struggling (in their 30's) and trying to figure out what to do with themselves.
Like so many other things in life, it's not the quantity of parents that count. It's the quality. People should stop making broad-based judgments about topics that are much more complicated than they appear.

The woman had an opinion. She voiced it. You don't agree. We get it. End of story.

It's amazing to see how many people there are (even on this board) who have no sense of respect or good behavior.
Honestly, I was a bit surprised when I read some of the comments that people don't get the entire can on a flight, because I always do. And as a matter of fact, the last time I flew with my 4-year-old son, the FA gave us an entire quart carton of OJ because he asked for juice so politely.
Being nice can go a long way.
However, we (my family and I) don't exhibit good manners to get special attention. We do it because it's THE RIGHT THING TO DO. Everyone deserves to be treated with respect.
It's sad so many people--- even people commenting on this blog--- can not remember this. Something tells me all of you will continue to get bad service no matter where you go, because what goes around comes around.
Jun 6th 2008 4:13PM Gee Bill. I read all of the wonderful things you said about flight attendants and I have to wonder why they would ever be "nasty" to you. You obviously treat them with the respect every human being deserves.
Get over yourself. I'm sure they are THRILLED you've decided not to fly anymore. Actually, as a frequent flyer--- *I'm* thrilled you aren't flying anymore.
Jun 6th 2008 3:56PM Amazing.
What I'd like to know is what in the world do people think you are asking when you're standing there next to the cart--- especially after you've been serving passenger after passenger after passenger? Do they think you are asking them for the time????
