Man, I’m so sick of people. Not any one person in particular, but the way humanity acts as a whole. It’s despicable. This story about a 7-year-old boy getting kicked off a flight is probably the most depressing story I’ve read in a long time. He started having an allergic reaction on a flight for a “bucket list” trip with his dad, who is dying of Stage 4 throat cancer. Passengers on the flight applauded when flight attendants booted him from the plane. Who applauds for a kid having an allergic reaction?

“He began to get very itchy and he was scratching all over. He started to get hives, so we informed the flight attendant who informed us that there’s dogs on every flight and just smirked, which minimized his experience for me,” said Fabian.
The allergic reaction delayed take off, and soon the family was told they’d have to deboard.
“We understood. They helped us off the plane, but as we gathered our stuff the people toward the back of the plane clapped,” said Fabian.
Giovanni’s feelings were crushed by the clapping.
“People who don’t have sadness, they don’t understand,” he said.
That quote guts me. The rest of this kid’s life he’s going to think about how a group of people cheered when his body starting doing something completely out of his control. Fuck those people. To make matters worse, the entire trip was a vacation with his dad, which was intended to be one of the last memories he might have with his old man:
“My dad is sick with stage four throat cancer,” said Giovanni.
Alvarado’s cancer is terminal and with time running out, the trip was supposed to be a special one.
“To make memories, and I am sad that this has to be a memory with my dad,” said Giovanni.
“As a dad I was just hopeless right there. I just looked at the people clapping. I was just shaking my head, I was like man lets get out of here,” said Alvarado.
As the family waits for the next flight, they try to turn something terrible into a teaching moment
“You don’t know how much time people have or why they are hurting. Just be nice. Be kind,” said Alvarado.
Giovanni, you did nothing wrong. And you shouldn’t be forced to live with such a humiliating experience for the rest of your life.
Don’t give me any of that “tough love” bullshit, too. Everyone who cheered could have kept it in. There’s no excuse for acting like an asshole and then writing it off as “well you should haven’t inconvenienced all these people.” It’s just as easy to NOT do something than to make a big scene.
I hate people. You’re better than this, humanity.
