Pardon, your honor?


American tourist Jean Barnard, who embarked on her dream holiday to Australia and New Zealand in January last year, alleges the trip became a nightmare when she boarded a Darwin-bound Qantas plane in Alice Springs, walked to her assigned seat and came face-to-face with a three-year-old boy across the aisle.

The boy allegedly leant back over his armrest toward Ms Barnard and let out a scream so severe that blood erupted from her ears, leaving her “stone cold deaf”.

I was like that when I was little. . .


“I guess we are simply fortunate that my eardrum was exploding and I was swallowing blood. Had it not been for that, I would have dragged that kid out of his mother’s arms and stomped him to death. Then we would have an ‘international incident’,” Ms Barnard allegedly wrote.


What a crock. I agree with a lot of the complaints about lawyers, but, the clients that bring the cases can be just as bad. How could anyone, other than the brat’s parents, foresee or prevent such a thing.


She can’t be completely evil - at least SHE spelled “Qantas” without the “u” in the suit! :laughing:


That’s gonna come up every time the word Quantas. . . . . Just kidding. . . The word Qantas is spelled.
