Not to mention the dozens of people who now would feel uncomfortable in the least to have to sit next to her for the next 10 hours and catch whatever she has. The parents seem selfish for being so outraged. She had to wait one more day and saved possibly dozens of people from being sick for days. Also reminds of the Indiana girl who came home from a trip to Romania with measles and caused the largest outbreak in the U.S. in a decade.
