Holy Shit! If she did that in a U.S. Airport she'd be tased, rendited and waterboarded.

I see this kind of behaviour every single week. Of course when I see it, it involves three-year-olds whose parents have declined to buy them ice cream from the vending machine at the swimming pool where I take my kids for swimming lessons. The record so far this year is a 35-minute purple-faced tantrum complete with lying on the floor pounding its little fists and running across the room to kick at its mother -- the kid that is, not me. And just to be clear, my kids don't throw tantrums, I watch other people's kids do it while mine are swimming.

And the last time anyone did this in a Canadian Airport they were tasered to death by the mounties.

I've had some of those kids as patients. But I haven't seen adults tantrum like this lady did. Thank god.
