Yeah aprilgail2-

I remember being on a business flight many years ago and a woman was breastfeeding next to a 10 year old boy with no blanket or any cover at all. He was asking her questions about it, and this made her mad so she called over a flight attendant to have HIM moved!

So the flight attendant comes to me and asks me to switch with the boy. I didn't really want to switch because it was way farther back in the plane, next to the window and my stuff was overhead of my seat but I wanted to help this poor boy out, so I moved.

As soon as I sat down, the woman started telling me that the boy that had been seated next to her was a rude boy to even ask her what she was doing, and to look etc. So I told her that kids are just naturally curious and maybe she should have covered up with a blanket to avoid the situation. She said that she was not going to put a blanket over her baby's head and put him in the dark and heat just because no one had taught that little "brat" manners. I bet she turned out to be some fine mother!

Before you flame me, I will tell you that I breastfed two children myself. But I always went to a discreet location (yes even a bathroom sometimes) or at the very minimum covered up with a blanket in a corner somewhere. I understand that it is a natural process, but so are a lot of other things that we do not do in public and that nobody else needs to see if they don't want to.

Flame away, but that's how I feel!

But the belly thing wouldn't bother me for my family to see if it was JUST the belly!

Now let's hear some more funny stories! This thread is great!

I couldn't believe my eyes and though they must be European. The child did it a second time. I wanted to see if I could detect an accent and when I passed by her I noticed a distinct southern drawl! That still gives me a chuckle to this day.
My BIL told us this story about his DW. She breastfeed her youngest son until 4 or 5 yo. They were in the back of a WDW bus he started pulling at her shirt and was yelling milkly way (milky way was his name for breastfeeding) mom. So she started to breastfeed him there on the bus. MY BIL was so embarrassed that he got up and moved to the front of the bus.

No flames from me. I completely agree and I think you said it very well.

The proper place was where she was. I do not deny that at all. I also said that I believe in breastfeeding as what is best for the child.

This person's breast was completely uncovered, leaving NOTHING to the imagination. As if it makes a difference (and I might be flamed for saying this) .... it was not very shapely or cute. If she had been discrete it would not have made any difference at all.

I want to say that I applaud women who give the extra effort to breastfeed. My wife did not have the opportunity because of medical reasons and she believes that she missed out on the bonding.

I agree with you 100%. There are things that are very 'natural' but I would not want them shared with me nor would I want to share mine with others.

Maybe we are getting a bit off track here. This thread is such fun that I would hate to see it turn into a debate and get closed.

Any more "shocking stories"?

On a Celebrity cruise, there was a middle-aged man with his wife who began wearing women's clothing. He started out wearing a woman's blouse, and then, each day, got increasingly more "woman." He and his wife kissed and danced together like nothing was out of the ordinary. The final straw was when he jumped into the pool wearing a one-piece woman's swimsuit with padded breasts! I try to be as open and nonjudgemental as possible, but I really could not believe my eyes! My family still tells this story when we talk about cruising!

So basically, if you are in the mood for a shock, hang around the pools and beaches.

Funny thread! Keep 'em coming!

Well, not so much something seen but experienced! It was the first night of my first cruise. I lasted a good 20 min in AP before throwing in the towel and booking it outside to cure my seasickness (If i can see water im fine for some weird reason). In any case, later that night i was in one of the goofy pool hot tubs with a couple of people i met in the teen club. It was still pretty rough but didn’t seem like it. So were sitting there talking about the waves forming in the pool when all of the sudden the waves hit just right and doused us with cold water. Happened at least two more times, By the time i got out, the pool was about 2'-3' down from where it usually was!

Wrong Part of Town

My sister and I booked a last-minute, girls-only, "35 years of sisterhood" cruise (any excuse for a cruise will do!). While walking in the edge of the surf on the beach in Miami on the morning before we sailed, I freaked out when a dead pelican washed up around my ankles... aaaaccccckkkkk!

Wouldn't you know it, same trip, it got worse. We thought we would explore Cozumel on foot on our own, and apparently walked in the wrong direction... (down by the Army(?) base)... we are walking along, and sitting on the steps to the beach is a fat old mexican, shorts around his knees "enjoying" himself. We immediately hailed the next passing cabbie and headed to Chakanab- we figured it was safe there.

"Dead Pelicans and Dirty Old Men"... how's that for the title of a trip report?????

This thread is hysterical ... I hope it keeps going and going.

We took a trip to Orient Beach and had no idea that it was a "clothing optional beach"! I like to walk the beach/shore when I'm away so I tell my hubby I'm going for a stroll .... my luck, I walk into some very large fellow DIS cruisers in the all-together ... had no idea where to look and did an about face. Get back to the Hubby who says why such a pale face ... so embarrased I can't talk. We finally get back to the ship and of course I keep walking into the same people I saw ... Hubby says what's the matter and all I can say is "naked whale on the beach".

This year we take a side trip to Pineapple Beach on Antiga ... you guessed it it's topless and we had no idea. Hubby who never uses my zoom camera can't find it fast enough, then says who's idea was it to come here ... I WANT TO SEND THEM A THANK YOU CARD! Another good laugh.
