If he bangs the babysitter, is it still considered the Mile High Club?

They couldn't go on their vacation, so they recreated the worst aspect of it?

The flight was diverted to Munich in order to remove the youngest child for making racist comments to a flight attendant (UPS driver).

Did they bring a crying baby?
 
2020-04-16 10:52:17 AM  
I see they decided to fly business class.

That food looks too appetizing to be airline food.

Worst.

Staycation.

Ever.

Wow! It's really awesome that there are so many great ideas out there for how to entertain yourself during the lockdown. Maybe I should send them a list.

Did they put dead fish under a seat for the guy who takes off his shoes?

I live in a cul-de-sac--so I am going to keep driving around it, saying "Big Ben,Parliament!" every time I see my house.

Dad's on the MS Flight Simulator
This is your father and your pilot speaking.  Does anyone know which key raises the landing gear?  We're burning through a lot of fuel with the gear down.  Also, I think a frozen Haitian kid just fell out of the wheel well.

My hubby told me there's an episode of Married with Children with Al taking a one-week Bundy World Tour on his couch. Sounds about right.

Wait, you're telling me I can get treated like a criminal, sit in a seat for 15 hours, and eat terrible food without paying hundreds of dollars?? Boy the airlines are really gonna be in trouble when people hear about this!

They don't sound like their jobs would pay that much & I know it said they've been planning for five years but still FTFA: "The family planned a multi-week trip, taking in Germany, France, Italy, a Mediterranean cruise and five weeks in the UK."

That's a serious vacation.

Hate to break it to you, but they ain't servin' booze on planes right now.

Found this out the hard way a few weeks ago.

Bars in airports are closed, too.

Luckily, the bar in my simulated airplane is wiiiiide open.

Did they play the entirety of Desert Bus for their next skit?
 
2020-04-16 11:41:33 AM  
What next, a Desert Bus marathon?

It definitely is. But, I think Australians pack in a big break, if they can. They are so far away from Europe, so they might as well go for it. ... They encourage gap years, as well.

Please don't quote me on this. I'm speculating.

FIVE WEEKS

in the UK alone?!

JFC that's not a vacation that's a gap year.

Yeah, my thought exactly.

I love how Americans react to the fact that the rest of the world actually gets vacations.

/Ok, 2+ months is a little extreme
//But 4-6 weeks at a go is pretty normal
///I've had to fight to take 3 weeks multiple times, it's my damn vacation time and I'm actually planning to use it TYVM

I went to wedding in Charleston about this time last year, layover in Chicago. You would have thought someone had told me Santa is real when I discovered you could get your drinks to go and return to your waiting area.

Hey- go easy. I hadn't flown in a couple years and didn't have any layovers (or much time in the airport, really) on my last trip.

I began to make a snarky comment....then I realize the amount of hours I've logged in to flight simulator (X-Plane 11) so I guess I'm not THAT much different.

How the hell did their luggage end up on my porch?

My dad used to use the flight simulator to fly from New York to Sydney in real time. He would take a lot of breaks.
