A Recipe

A Recipe for Disaster

2 - Tired kids who have been up too late for days and overstimulated by various aunts, uncles and cousins

2 - Tired parents who have been up too late and overstimulated by various aunts, uncles and cousins

2 - Delayed flights home

1 - Missed connection

1 - Crappy hotel in Detroit

1 - One cranky re-booking agent who made the mistake of trying to tell me while I breastfed one of the over-tired over-stimulated kids who hadn't eaten in hours and who just wanted to go home, that I needed to leave the area because "that's what restrooms are for"

0 - Luggage because our luggage was already one its way to Philly even though we were decidely NOT

3 - Diapers that had to last until we got home the next morning because I didn't think we needed that many when I packed the diaper bag because shit, we'll be home by 3:00.

Sounds like fun, huh? I'm still recovering and the suitcases are still waiting to be unpacked.

PS...I did give that agent hell. I started by telling her how much I enjoyed having MY lunch on the toilet and asking if I could buy her a sandwich to enjoy while SHE sat on the crapper.

    Restrooms are for EATING?! I'm obviously quite confused.

    Sorry your trip was so exhausting! Hope you gave the agent hell!

    Please tell me that you told her off! Normally I am patient but that would have made me angry. Are you supposed to sit on the toliet to nurse?

    Wow, I just wrote a post that said I don't believe breastfeeders get as much shit as nonbreastfeeders. But hearing this makes me not so sure. Sorry about that. Fuck 'em.

    GOOD FOR YOU!!! Who in the heck dis they think they are?!?!!!!!! I sincerely doubt you were just giving the world a free show and they were WAY, WAY out of line. You ought to report them to the airline. Honest. And I have never even breastfed but still believe you should be able to do so when and where you need to.

    Sorry you had to go through that!

    Good grief, I agree, a letter to said crappy airline is waaaay in order. "That's what restrooms are for..." My lord. I don't like to pump in a restroom (which I have to each time I go for my REQUIRED continuing ed classes), and I can't imagine feeding in one. Don't like it? Don't look at me or get me on the next flight, deal?

    Sorry that the trip was so hideous.
