What Do You Expect When You Give Your Kid A Stupid Name

Mother is upset at Southwest Airlines because she overheard an employee making fun of and laughing at her name.   The kids name is:  Abcde….pronounced ab-city.

Traci Redford said she was boarding a Southwest Airlines flight home to El Paso, Texas, with her 5-year-old daughter when she overheard an airline employee mocking the little girl’s name, Abcde (pronounced ab-city). Now the airline has apologized to the mom and daughter in a public statement.

The incident occurred at John Wayne Airport in Orange County, Calif., according to news affiliate ABC7 in Los Angeles. The Redfords were preboarding — as they usually do because Abcde is epileptic — when the Southwest Airlines gate agent started laughing and pointing at the child and making fun of her unique name to fellow airline employees. “I turned around and said, ‘Hey, if I can hear you, my daughter can hear you, so I’d appreciate if you’d just stop,’” Redford told ABC7.

Redford said her daughter was within ear shot and asked her, “‘Mom, why is she laughing at my name?’” according to ABC 7. “I said, ‘You know, honey, not everybody is nice. And not everyone’s gonna be nice, and it’s unfortunate,’”

What Redford didn’t find out until later, though, is that the unidentified employee also took a picture of the girl’s boarding pass and posted it on Facebook to take her name shaming public. But another social media user alerted the mom of the post after reporting it to Southwest Airlines. Redford then issued a formal complaint to Southwest Airlines and pursued it for two weeks but never got a response.

I will the employee was wrong for posting a picture of the kids boarding pass on Facebook.   If I had young children, I would be upset if anyone posted anything on theme on social media without my permission.

    Fucking people “hurt” by fucking words. BOO-FUCKING-HOO. My sincere Christmas wish for momma and daughter is they get dragged into a dark alley and gang-raped by 2 dozen illegal M-13 Beaners. They they’ll really know what the word “HURT” means.

    You can’t stop people from saying whatever they want, about anyone, in private. But at least have enough “couth” to do it in private, out of sight and hearing of the one you’re poking at.
    Unless it’s a public figure (politician, entertainer, sports, etc), then it’s GAME ON!
    Remember, you are the public face of the company you work for.

    The child didn’t ask for her name, she can’t help what her mother put on the records at birth.
    If anything, poke fun at the mother, not the child.
    (Reminds me of the mother that named her child “La-a”. How do you pronounce it? “La-dash-a”. Idiot mother)
    That name “Abcde” also reminds me of the scenes from “Spaceballs” where the king and the dictator find out what the combinations to the forcefield and luggage are. Remember? “1-2-3-4-5”. ONLY AN IDIOT………

    The parent should be horse whipped on a regular basis for inflicting such a stupid name on the child.

    This reminds me of the old Indian joke with the punchline why do you ask two dogs fucking?

    Once I would have been sorry for the child, and I still think it’s bad manners to talk about someone like that, especially when they’re listening. But- good manners are rejected these days, that’s “white person” stuff that doesn’t matter any more in our new world.

    Now we’ve got diversity, so idiotic names are an automatic step up the “special” ladder. Names like Tyquander and Lemorangia automatically qualify a person for welfare & affirmative action, so Traci (typical white woman name, “Traci Redford,” totally worthless in today’s world) has done her kid a solid!

    As soon as Harvard sees the name “Abcde” they’ll assume she’s black and that her mother must be illiterate, so she’ll get right in; and when it turns out that she’s handicapped as well, it’ll be like she won the special olympics lottery! Now if her mother had named her “Laura Redford” she’d never have a chance of getting into Harvard, she’d have no affirmative action points at all. It’s a steep uphill climb for white folks, they don’t want any, it’s useless for virtue signalling.

    My sister divorced her husband after her son was born; the ex was named “Smith.” She then lived with a guy with a Greek name; she changed all the paperwork so her son’s last name is now the Greek one, since that gets him all kinds of benefits that someone named Smith isn’t eligible for.

    Our world is really fucked up, if you haven’t noticed, and white people are last in line; we all have to sit at the back of the bus these days, and we’re the first ones kicked off!

    At first I thought that she had to be black to give her daughter a name like that until I noticed that there wasn’t an apostrophe or tilde or whatever the fuck knee grows use in them nowadays. Wait, it couldn’t be a tilde. That’s Spanish and blacks hate beaners…………..
