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.

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.

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.

That's a serious vacation.

FIVE WEEKS in the UK alone?!

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


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

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.
