A couple decided to take their young baby with them to a ski resort in Colorado, and after a rough couple of nights dealing with a screaming baby, they woke up one morning to an anonymous letter slipped under their door from agitated neighbors.
“Thank you for bringing a screaming baby to a ski resort and wake up everyone near your room, several times during the night,” reads the letter. “These walls are not sound proof and the screams seemed to be right next to us. Babies don’t ski, no reason to bring them to a ski resort, they should stay at home with family or nannies. I never brought my babies to a place like this. I was considerate of others, not selfish. I stayed home when I could not get help. We need more people who think of others and less selfish ones. Your baby screams ruined our sleep on Saturday and Sunday (the worst). We planned this trip a year ago, to ski hard all day and sleep at night so we could ski all day, thanks to you, that was not the case. Hope you think of others around on your next trip.”
The parents were upset over the letter, and when the mother sent it to her blogger brother, he took to the Internet to vent his frustration.
“You, on the other hand, choose to spew hatred and judgment on others even when it will bring no change to your own situation,” wrote the angry brother and uncle in an open letter to the anonymous writers posted on the Huffington Post. “You didn't say anything when the young parents could have done something, choosing instead to leave a parting note to let them know what terrible people they are. Be honest, the note was not for the good of the world, it was for retribution. It was your way of doling out karma. I hope you are proud of yourself.”
The brother, who runs his own successful blog called “Dad On The Run,” got much support from people in the comments but also received some harsh criticism for his stance.
“Okay I think that the person that wrote your sister is a bit nasty but correct,” responded user Dominic Accardi. “I would have simply called the front desk and asked them to do something about it. Sorry but I am not paying a ton of money to be woken up by a baby. I feel the Dads pain but it shouldn't be mine too.”
Needless to say, the parents in question will most likely think twice before bringing their baby certain places in the future. You live and you learn, right?
