Oh, cut this out, you dopes
…Being a woman of royal curvature (think the late Queen Mother), HA hates weeny teeny airline seats. Now, according to Scott McCartney (WSJ, May 6, 2008), some passengers, acting like cornered rats, are being utterly gross in things they leave behind—as a punishment to airline personnel.
…Can we grow up by five minutes, please?
…Some people blow their noses on blankets that get offered to other passengers later.
…A psychologist said people think the airlines don’t care about them? Well, it’s not hard to figure out why. But is this the best approach—gross out your fellow victims by leaving used diapers in the magazine pocket?
…The middle seat (where kids and really really ticked off adults) sit can be the worst pocket to explore.
…One guy spit chewing baccy in a cup for hrs then put it in the seat pocket. No lid.
…Sometimes people hand the attendant a used diaper while the attendant is serving food.
…The airlines admit not much cleaning goes on between flights—remember that!
…And if you are counting on that, never sit next to HA.
…Assuming she ever goes anyplace again.
…And you know what? I don’t think it’s pass-agg against bad airline treatment. Some people are just naturally piggy. Oink, oink!
