Woman causes uproar after revealing she asked parents NOT to change ‘extremely stinky’ diaper

A woman sparked furious outrage after revealing that a couple changed their baby’s “extremely stinky” diaper on a plane’s food tray mid-flight.

The anonymous Reddit user reignited the heated conversation surrounding flight etiquette, just days after a pilot revealed his final rules for travel.

The 28-year-old revealed that a couple yelled at her after she begged them not to change a smelly diaper in the middle of her seat.

She questioned whether she was wrong in a thread titled, ‘Am I the idiot?‘ for telling parents to go to the bathroom to change their child’s diaper.

The post read: ‘I was on a flight for several hours today, sitting behind a couple with a baby. I am a very nauseated traveler so I took a Dramamine early and tried my best to get some sleep during the flight.

“This didn’t happen because of the crying baby, but hey, I know flights are scary and stressful for babies and there was nothing anyone could do about it.”

‘What caught my eye was the couple changing their baby’s extremely stinky #2 diaper right in the middle of their seats, using mum’s food tray as a changing table. We were at the back of the plane, right next to the restrooms, which I confirmed had changing tables when I had to go back there to vomit after being hit by the smell.

He explained that the parents changed their baby’s diaper twice during the duration of the flight.

The first time it happened, the anonymous traveler revealed that she kept her mouth shut.

But, for the second time, he had enough.

She revealed: “I didn’t say anything the first time, but the second time I heard them get into the diaper bag a couple hours later, I asked them if they could go to the plane bathroom instead of exposing everyone on the plane to the smell.’

And although he thought the parents would be kind and listen to his request, he received a very different response than he expected.

Other users on the social media platform were quick to come to the woman's defense and criticized the parents for their behavior.

The Reddit user revealed that the mother started yelling at him about the stress that comes with being a parent.

“The mom told me that she had no idea how stressful it is to travel with a baby, which is true, I don’t have children,” she explained.

Fortunately, however, the flight crew took the woman’s side over the mother’s.

“The flight attendant at the back of the plane agreed with me and asked them to only use the restrooms to change their baby, and a few minutes later the pilot announced that all diaper changes were to be done in the restrooms, after which which both parents seemed extremely upset about,’ she explained.

She ended her post by wondering if she was the “jerk” for asking parents to “stop changing your baby in the middle of the plane and inadvertently drawing the attention of the flight crew.”

Other users on the social media platform were quick to come to the woman’s defense, criticizing the parents for their “disgusting” behavior.

One person wrote: ‘Not the jerk. There are changing tables in the bathrooms. That’s what they are for.

‘Also, thank goodness, the maintenance crews disinfect between flights. The thought of eating/drinking from a tray that is used as a changing table makes me want to throw up.’

Another user commented: ‘Baby changing table basic rules: don’t do it where people eat or where people are around. If you have a choice, always use the changing tables. ‘

‘What they were doing was disgusting,’ someone else said.

One mom even chimed in, saying, “As a mom who’s traveled with babies, that’s disgusting.”

One pilot said: ‘Pilot here. That’s what bathrooms are for. You are not alone on a plane, and having a baby does not exempt you from antisocial behavior.

‘If you can’t respect your fellow travelers, you probably shouldn’t fly. I’m willing to bet that if they were on the receiving end, they’d be the first to complain.

I have many urine and feces histories from my flights and have zero tolerance for inexcusable behavior. Accidents are okay.

“We are all human and I feel empathy for people with medical problems. Laziness and entitlement are where I draw the line. Flying is a privilege, not a right, and I have no problem revoking that privilege for people who don’t get along with others.’

Another user said: ‘That’s so disgusting and unsanitary. Yes, the air is filtered, but things will still be contaminated.

Someone else wrote: ‘Disgusting people’.

‘That’s gross. Parents with rights make things worse for everyone around them,” wrote one person.

The ordeal is the latest in a series of debates about airplane etiquette.

Many have caused an uproar after sharing the position on the change of airplane seat.

Audrey Peters, 25, recently took to TikTok to share her dismay when she was asked to move to a middle seat so a family could sit together.

The social media star, who is from Miami but currently lives in New York City, laughed off the request, saying they should have booked their flight earlier.

His reaction sent the web spinning as the seat switch continues to split the internet.

In the past, DailyMail.com’s Jaci Stephen has even offered her point, confessing that she “absolutely refuses” to change seats, no matter how angry the passenger requesting the change may be.
