Before 10 Hour Flight, Mother Gives 220 Goodie Bags To Other Passengers On Behalf Of Her Newborn.

Raising the bar on thoughtfulness and thinking of others.  On a recent 10 hour flight from Seoul to San Francisco, a Korean mom raised the bar when she handed out goodie bags to 220 of her fellow passengers to apologize, in advance, for the possibility of her 4-month-old newborn crying.  It included candies, earplugs….and this note.   According

Raising the bar on thoughtfulness and thinking of others.

 On a recent 10 hour flight from Seoul to San Francisco, a Korean mom raised the bar when she handed out goodie bags to 220 of her fellow passengers to apologize, in advance, for the possibility of her 4-month-old newborn crying.

 It included candies, earplugs….and this note.

  According to a Facebook post shared on February 12 by Dave Corona, Director of Photography at ABC Television in San Francisco,

  “At first, I thought she was a flight attendant. In fact, the seat mates that were next to me, who were from San Jose, even asked her ‘Can we have some slippers?’ She didn’t speak any English. She only spoke Korean, and just handed us the goodie bags. Then I started reading the note and I realized that she was the mother.

  My wife and I have twins. So when we traveled when they were little, we had to carry them the entire time and there was no handing them off to one another, so I know exactly what it’s like. In fact, we used to go early to restaurants with our twins to go out to eat because we knew if we went regular time, it would be such a hassle.

 But I don’t think I would do the goodie bag thing. It’s just way too much work.”

Yeah, packing for an overseas vacation and taking care of a newborn would be a handful, so assembling these packages really went the extra mile.

 Impressive.

 I did feel a little sad that she felt the necessity to do this…

 From CafeMom,

 Babies cry — it’s literally one of the top three things they do in those early months. And as many pointed out, the world needs to get used to it instead of expecting them to somehow miraculously become silent in public spaces. Especially when it only puts more pressure on the stressed-out parent.

But, as it turned out to be….

  “A very touching gesture by the mother, but as you know when you have kids, expect the unexpected.

  Not a peep out of Junwoo,” wrote Corona.

 So whilst there are some people that have a sense of entitlement, there are so many more that exude class, and this mom has that in spades.
