What is the deal with this article?

I'm holding out for the lemon-soaked ones. I'm wiling to endure a short delay to get 'em.

It's probably easier to pick up and discard a napkin than to have to wipe down a tray table that has coffee spilled on it.

Have you ever seen the inside of a napkin prison?

WAAAAAAY TL, DR; TFA of TFA doesn't understand why the airline wants to give you a napkin with your drink, not understanding that the condensation that does show up can make your drink slide around on a plastic tray, and that even a cocktail napkin is preferable to no napkin when you spill something and the flight attendant is trapped at the other end of the plane, behind the drink cart, or they've buckled in, or for any number of other reasons, the flight attendant just can't get there quickly, or possibly at all before the plane lands. Basically, James really, REALLY needs to come up with some decent farking material if he wants to be a journalist when he grows up.

I've never had an issue declining the napkin.

If you never put the tray down, they usually don't offer one.

Why the fark did this idiot waste the time to think this shiat and then write it down? That is tragic enough but an editor actually published it? Trump was bad enough but this, THIS might be.... my god. I've become what I despise ( minus the editor. fark him).
