I only do that to the male Stews. I figure it's okay, because they're probably gay anyways.

You take it all the way to the Supreme Court:   http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/12/03/us-usa-court-flyer-idUSBRE9 B 20XV20131203

Good luck with that - we'll see how they rule.

Put all of your winter clothes and laptop bag in the overhead bin. Make sure you have a window seat, get up to use the restroom a few times an hour. Reek of liquor. Be foul-mouthed and loud, be sure to hit the waitress button at least a dozen times for trivial shiat.

Oh, wait, that's a typical flight out of Newark.

Not sure what you do, actually.

My biggest stumbling block is not shiatting on the "little people." The people you actually want to smear are extremely well insulated. If this were olden days, i could just catch birds that nest in the feudal lord's manor, tie flaming straw to their bird legs, and let them fly back to roost. Smoking out the people in charge is much harder these days--and, really, a big part of the problem.

Yes, barf in the aisle then watch as you're arrested, have terrorist charges brought against you then have your name permanently on the No Fly List. The airlines may do nothing to address a greviance but they sure as hell do everything ib their power to go after you if you upset them.

some complaints are legitimate, and others, like the 'gay code' guy are just guys who are latent homosexuals and don't know it yet.

they hide behind their money, gated communities, and tax paid security.  they're cowardly worms who ply their trade of exploitation (capitalists) and don't mind ruining this fading Democratic Republic.

ain't Freedom great!

The Entitlement is strong with airline passengers. Very demanding, quick to snap out, etc. I suppose it must be overcompensation for feeling completely out of control of your fate on an airplane. You get sealed up in a pressurized tube, and place your safety completely in the hands of strangers you haven't even met. So yeah, people get touchy...

/soon, soon, I'll be retired and won't have to fly commercial ever again...

White, for his part, says that besides an apology, he'd like a specific assurance that Delta's IT department will prevent someone else from receiving an offensive message when they check in.
"I'm an IT major, and what surprises me is that they didn't block [his confirmation code] as a possibility of the string of random numbers and letters in the software they use to generate" the code, he says. "I'm sure they removed many four-letter words that would be seen as offensive. I'm surprised that 'gays' and 'H8' weren't blocked as well."


This is the problem of an atomised society.

At one time, this sort of guy would be a social pariah. He'd do something dumb in a pub to someone he knows, and they would tell the butcher and baker and word would get around. It meant that being a complete farkwit wasn't rewarded.

Nowadays, you can be a total tool, write and complain and it gets validated with a boilerplate apology, because suppliers know it's easier than calling someone a tool.

Perhaps passengers expect too much from the winged buses of the 21st century.
Maybe it's time to lower our standards a little.


 Pretty sure Christopher Elliott has his paychecks signed by airlines.
