Parents all have the same struggles and sympathize with each other. Sometimes, you have to stand up for yourself and your babies though.

The first NTA comment. Most people agree with them that they paid for the seat so obviously they get the right to it.

It's ridiculous for her to demand that because her baby is younger, that they deserve the seat, but newborns typically are easier on flights than older babies.

I mean they did pay for the seat. This person says that it's rude to ask to switch seats in general. Just sit where you're supposed to.

This situation actually has people all saying he's not the asshole. Most people are agreeing with this person and say that they were in the right.

I mean, this couple did pay for the seats and the woman did not. It was definitely unfair that she made it seem like her baby and herself were more important than the couple.

How do you feel about this situation? Would you have done the same thing or would you have taken your seats back?
