Man Ridicules Boy for Reading Out Loud on Flight, Apologizes Profusely Before Landing

Tyler Campbell couldn’t bear the youngster sitting next to him on the plane reading aloud, and he began insulting him and his father, Edward, calling them “uncivilized.” Edward lost his temper and yelled at Tyler, revealing the shocking reason why his son was reading aloud. That’s when Tyler apologized profusely for his misbehavior.

Edward Norman’s 11-year-old son Louis was talking so loud at the airport that other passengers were looking at him and whispering. Edward felt a little embarrassed as he waited for his flight with Louis, who was talking too loud, but he couldn’t do anything.

After his wife’s death 3 years ago, Edward felt that he couldn’t cope with parenthood like his late wife Jacqueline did. He felt he didn’t do enough for a father. And so, as they settled on the plane, Edward hoped there wouldn’t be another incident beyond his control. However, fate had other plans…

“Hey, man. Please tell your son to SHUT THE HELL UP! I’m trying to sleep here!” Tyler grumbled.

Edward and Louis were sitting next to him. Edward had brought Louis’s favorite book with him so he could read to him on the plane. However, Louis insisted on reading it on his own. He was reciting the words aloud, and this enraged Tyler and a few other passengers on board.

“I’m sorry, sir,” Edward muttered as he turned to face Louis. “Hey, champ. Could you please read quietly for me? We don’t want to bother anyone, do we?”

“BUT DAD!” Louis exclaimed. “I AM SO HAPPY TODAY! THESE PICTURES! THE BIRDS, FRUITS, AND THE WORDS IN HERE. I AM SO HAPPY TO READ THEM!”

“Well, son—” Before Edward could say anything, Tyler cut them off.

“What in the world is wrong with your son? Doesn’t he know how to read properly? He’s literally screaming into my ears! You know what, I don’t want to sit beside morons like you! I’m calling the flight attendant right now!”

Don’t pass judgment on someone because you don’t know what they’re going through.
“Excuse me, ma’am,” Tyler motioned to the stewardess. “I need some help!”

“Yes, sir. How may I help you?”

“Look, I need to change seats right now because I want to sleep comfortably, and I don’t think that’s possible here due to the kind of people I’m seated with,” he complained, pointing to Edward and Louis.

“May I ask what the problem is, sir? Actually, we don’t have any vacant seats right now. If it’s urgent, I can request someone to swap seats with you.”

Tyler lost his cool. “Have you heard this boy? He’s been reading aloud and I just want some peace and quiet! And his father, he’s an absolute idiot for allowing him to disturb the peace in this flight.”
