A woman on her way to Syracuse found her trip cut short after she was booted from the plane for refusing to sit next to a crying baby.
The child's mother, 19-year-old Marissa Rundell, told her story on Facebook earlier this month, and the video she posted of the angry passenger has quickly gained popularity online.
During an Endeavor Air flight from New York's JFK Airport to Syracuse's Hancock Airport, Rundell, who was traveling with her 8-month-old son, says that the unidentified woman was the last to board the plane and began causing a ruckus even before she was actually seated. The woman allegedly began complaining about having to sit in the back of the plane, Syracuse.com reports, calling it "f*cking ridiculous" and slamming her bags down. Rundell says that, after she asked the woman not to use that type of language around her son, the woman responded by telling her to "shut the f*ck up and shove it."
Rundell says that the woman then started complaining about her seat, yelling, "I'm not sitting next to a crying baby!" Rundell responded by telling her that her baby wouldn't be crying during the entire trip, but the woman insisted that she would not sit next to a crying baby. When a flight attendant then informed her that she could take the next flight, she refused and asked for the employee's name — Tabitha — and ID number.
"Thank you, Tabitha," the woman reportedly said. "You may not have a job tomorrow."
When Tabitha then told another member of the crew that she wanted the unruly passenger removed from the flight for "screaming at the baby," the woman changed her tune, apologizing and explaining that she was "really stressed out." Unfortunately for her, her apologies didn't save her travel plans — she was kicked off the flight anyway, and Rundell shared video of the incident on her Facebook page.
"This lady thought she was going to be rude to me and Mason now she has no way home today. Thank you to the lovely Delta flight attendant for not letting this women bully us," Rundell wrote, adding, "Karma is a b*tch."
