PLANE TRUTHS

I fly every month, sometimes twice, for work. These are my thoughts and observations from seat 10D. 10/18/2015. 4:30pm ET
  1. 1.
    If I am sitting beside a man, 100% of the time, he claims the arm rest. I end up tightening my arms into my boobs/rib cage so he can be comfortable. WTF?
  2. 2.
    Is it really necessary to stamp NO SMOKING on the tray tables???
  3. 3.
    Why is a couple above the age of 90 allowed to sit in the exit row?
  4. 4.
    Why does air flow stop when the plane is backing away from the gate?
  5. 5.
    ...Picking up this list on my return flight. 10/23/15. Seat 11D. 7:40am CT....

    Sitting next to a young girl. The arm rest remains free; neither of us are using it. Item #1 above proven true.
  7. 7.
    Business travelers behind me verbally trashing a work-from-home co-worker saying she has no drive and is lazy. As he explains to the other passenger that the co-worker is moving to a new apartment so she will have more space for her home office, they are discussing a plan to terminate her. Now THAT's leadership and compassion at its finest. 🙄🙄

    It's never too early for a Bloody Mary....it is Friday, after all. Cheers! 🍹
