Hotel Guest Leaves Parents Nasty Note For Bringing Crying Baby On Vacation [PICTURE]
I don’t have kids, so I don’t know what the right or wrong answer is. It also doesn’t help that I am arguably more carefree than Bob Marley (just without the weed). Would this make you mad?
A couple was on a business trip at a ski resort with their baby when they woke up one morning to find a nasty note from the couple next door because their “screaming crying baby” kept them up all night.
I mean, the baby did exactly what babies do: cried. The people next door, understandably, were not happy. But, instead of knocking on their door to explain their discomfort or going to the front desk and ask for a room change, they decided that the bold move of leaving an anonymous letter would do the trick.
When the couple who received the letter got back, they gave it to the wife’s brother, who happens to be a blogger. Here’s what he has to say:
Your kids ruined things for other people too. As a matter of fact, you ruined more than one evening for others when you were a little tyrant yourself. The same is true for every adult walking the planet, unless their parents kept them tranquilized or frozen in carbonite until graduation. Maybe you didn’t know, but it happened. That is the way of the world; this is not a hermetically sealed, adults-only dystopia where nothing unexpected occurs to anyone. If you want to guarantee a trip with those parameters (and since you obviously planned for this years in advance), then plan a little better and rent a freaking cabin or bring a set of earplugs.
If it’s not a child, it will be a dog; if it’s not a dog, it will be a group of drunken fraternity members, or a construction crew, or a leaky faucet. Maybe loud lovers, the TV in the next room, or a neighbor who leaves their radio clock on all night that will disturb your slumber. It’s always something, isn’t it? I know the feeling. It sucks, but these things happen. Sometimes they are due to inconsideration and more often due to accident or happenstance.
People are agreeing and disagreeing, and I want to know what side of the fence you sit on. I will tell you I could see both sides, but I also will tell you that I probably would have just asked for a new room. But, than again — like I said, I’m Bob Marley.
