My favorite co-travelers
By ThinGuy on Jul 22, 2007
veathe 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.
