Please note this post is purely for entertainment (though entirely accurate), so take it with a grain of salt. I’m being descriptive solely to set the scene. Beyond that, I’m guessing the post won’t come across as being nearly as funny as the actual situation was, though I’ll do my best!
So last night I went to the front desk at the Sheraton LAX to get a toothbrush. When I got in the elevator to go back to my room, there were two Southwest pilots, a mother with a young son, and a crossdresser in the elevator. The mom says to the pilots “I love your ties, those are so cool. Are all those airplanes from one specific airline?” The captain responds with “yes, they’re all Southwest planes.” At this point the crossdresser jumps in and says “oh no, not Southwest, you buying AirTran and taking away our first class seats, aren’t you?” The first officer responds “yeah, they’re getting rid of first class.” The crossdresser responds “oh no, in Atlanta all we people care about is first class. We don’t like you one bit, we just want those big comfy seats. We just want our first class.”
I had to get off on the first floor for which the button was pushed, though was so mesmerized by the conversation that I forgot to get off. So I only added to the situation by yelling out “oh crap” when I realized I missed my floor.
It certainly won’t come across as funny as the situation actually was, but oh man, it was quite possibly the most funny, bizarre travel moment of my life. Wish I could’ve gotten it on video.
