Kids on trains

Now it would be fair to say that I like very few people who happen to be using a train at the same time as me, but kids on a train are one of the most infuriating breeds possible on a train journey.

A prime example would be my last train journey home, in which I spied a family with a dog and 5 kids waiting to get on the train.

5?!? Idiots.

Bad enough that while waiting for the train doors to open, the kids couldn't be controlled, and were attempting to kick any and all pigeons in sight. (Not to mention one nearly kicked me at one point).

So anyway, once on the train, I made sure to be in a different carriage from said Luddites. This method seemed to be paying dividends for the first half of the journey.

Then me hears a noise, over ridiculously loud mp3's too, so I investigated. As I turned round, 3 of said kids sprinted up the train to the far end.

Then back.

Then up again.

Then back.

Then up AGAIN!

This fun routine was interspersed with climbing on things, bumping into people, and screaming. For 30 minutes.

Eventually, when on their millionth* sprint, the man in the seats opposite me stuck out his arm to stop them.

They did not see said arm, and thusly ended up spread eagled on the floor.

Seldom have I laughed quite as hard as when that happened.

*slight exaggeration

I was about 1 pass away from the swift ankle swipe.

It's reasons like this that I also hate using any sort of public transport at all.

Other reasons include cost and odour.

wrong target
you should've gone and dropped a hot coffee in the parents' laps. kids are born spastics. it's the parents' fault for not keeping em in line.

to anyone who is going to be on the same plane as me in early may, yes i am taking a toddler on a plane, he will no doubt throw a tantrum of some sorts, although im hoping he has inherrited my amazement at air travel and will sit grinning and looking out the window (or possibly staring at the hostesses legs) failing which cars will be on the i-pod to try and ammuse him
