Airport Advice

Tuesday, March 25, 2008

Can I just say that frankly, if you show up 25 minutes before your flight to a place like, oh I don't know, Los Angeles International Airport, that perhaps it's not Los Angeles' fault that you're going to miss your flight? And perhaps kvetching about how everything is "hurry up and wait" there is inappropriate when you clearly did NOT hurry up.

Also, and this is delicate, but if you are morbidly obese, please buy two seats. Even when you sit on the aisle seat and hang out onto the aisle, you're making it more difficult for other passengers and not just in obvious ways. See, when you do that, the person sitting, oh, I don't know, like across the aisle from you will get the shit smacked out of their elbow EVERYTIME the beverage cart rolls through because they are avoiding you. This is not especially fair.

And finally, to the boy sitting next to me, if I tell you that yes, New Orleans is in fact in the same time zone as Dallas, your looking at your watch and saying, "so then what time is it there?" does make you look stupid.

heh, i always bring a very-liberal book with me, like Clinton's autobiography, or one of Gore's books, or a book on Wicca, and immediately start reading it. That shuts up most people on the MSY-ATL flights. :-)
