Posted in: Why did those foreigners who decided to leave Japan in the aftermath of the March 11 disaster come in for so much derision from some people who labeled them with words like 'flyjin?' See in context

I hate people on FB and othersites telling me for the sake of my children's health that I should leave Japan. The stir of emotions it creates in me is considerable. Just wish people did not shoot their mouths off so much. As for "flyjin", I have mixed feelings. If you had the holiday time, and was worried about your children, and lived near the area, then taking off for a few weeks or so, not a bad thing. But those that paniced and took off and now are back, should not be saying how much they love Japan, and like living here. I considered what to do if things when to hell, but I was not about to just throw down everything and leave. And yes, some of these people did it with out showing much consideration to other people. They do not deserve any respect. I also wish most of them will admit the truth and that they paniced instead of saying they were just being cautious.

Posted in: What's the best way to deal with screaming or badly-behaved children at airports and on planes so that they don't drive other passengers crazy? See in context

Having a family section, and if you are unlucky enough to have to sit in it, then too bad for you.

Next, try headphones or ear plugs.

Lastly, kids on planes are apart of the flying experience. Learn to expect it, and accept it. Not only that, the airline makes more money off a family of four than just one moody person in a seat.

So just shut the hell up. There is nothing you can do about except complain in an empty sort of way.

Posted in: What behavior or habits by passengers on planes bother you the most? See in context

First, nothing wrong with drinking on the plane. If I want to get drunk, that is my choice. As long as I am quite what does it matter to anyone how much I drink. [quote]Yes, I expect parents with babies and brats to not fly. Nor take the train, at least not ride in the carriage I'm in. They should only be allowed to drive, bike, or walk to reach their vacation destination.

Also, no babies and brats in restaurants, at least not the ones I eat in. Parents - learn to cook. Your kids will be healthier and I'll be happier. [/quote] So, Japan being an island, how do you expect familes to get to other countries. Also, maybe you should learn to cook and then you would not have to put up with babies in resturants. Either way, once you have kids your thinking will change, at least one would hope so. Poor kid if it doesn't.
