Here starts my quarterly bashing of business travel and the airlines.
Have you noticed this new trend of people bringing their pets on board, in a carry-on, stuck under the seat infront of them? I find it pushes the limits of personal boundaries. What happens if someone in the row, or the plane for that matter, is allergic to dogs and/or cats. There is no escaping that recirculated air. I find it crosses a line.
I was on a flight many months ago with a couple who brought Fido on board. They were sitting in the exit row and the flight attendant told them, after realizing that they had a dog (why didn’t she already know!!), that they could not sit in the exit row. Made sense to me. In the event of an emergency, their attention is most likely going to be saving Fido, not their fellow passengers. They started arguing w/the flight attendant who put up w/their crap for about 20 seconds when she threatened to throw them off the plane.
I LOVE when flight attendants stand up to unruly passengers with an overblown sense of entitlement.
On Monday I was on a flight to
Ugh, this is not happening.
Then she realizes that doggy did not drink all of the water.
What does she do? We are ready to take off.
So she drinks it.
I will give you a minute to realize what you just read.
I nearly gagged. Could not believe my eyes.
And mid-flight, she did it again.
I wonder what awaits me on my way home.
