On my return flight home yesterday from Houston to Tampa, I overheard two things that made me laugh out loud.
First, at the gate at IAH this lady goes up to the gate agent and says “Is there any chance I could get an aisle seat? I have a bad knee and I’m a travel writer, and I’d hate to write a bad review of Northwest.” No comment as to which site I immediately checked the bios of.
Upon boarding my flight from DTW to TPA, this guy comes into first class with a huge carry-on. He can’t quite squeeze it into the overhead bin, and comments that “this has to be one of the biggest design flaws in Boeing aircraft.” No sir, your bad is just too damn big!
