My favorite co-travelers

I loveathe these people:

Mr. "Do I have everything?" - After standing at the ticket counter for an hour and receiving a boarding pass, he still doesn't trust that he has a seat.  They have to go check in with the agent at the gate.  Yes, you have everything.  Go have a seat, away from me.

Mr. "I just have a quick question" - This guy has a question that is so important he refuses to wait in the line.  Instead he stands at the end of the counter and tries to get the agents attention.   9 times out of 10, this is one and the same as Mr. "Do I have everything?"

Mr. "I just called to say hi" - No one likes to be Bored Dialed.  No one likes to listen to it in progress either.  Get a book.

Ms. "200 lb carry on bag" - You bring, you lift it.  Those are the rules of the road.

Mr. Catapult - Funny, the back of the seat in front of me does not say "Pull here to stand up"

There's a whole other category of travelers,  if you've ever flown into Las Vegas on a Friday night you know who I'm talking about.  Unless of course you're that person.  I avoid Friday return flights like the plague now.
