Mar 10th 2012 9:10PM That is still selfish and rude. This is not her home. This is a bathroom that has to be shared by a whole section of people on a flight. By occupying it to do her nails, she is hogging it, and other people who may really need to use it are unable to do so. This type of grooming should be done at home or in a salon....definitely not on a flight.
Mar 10th 2012 9:04PM Not only did she not quit after being asked to stop, but by moving to the bathroom she tied up the use of it for other passengers needing to use it. Selfish and rude behavior.
Dec 12th 2009 1:32PM I go out of my way to fly Virgin Atlantic when I have to fly to London (there are no flights from here). It costs me extra to fly to an airport where I can get a Virgin Atlantic flight, but it is worth every penny. Their coach class passengers are treated better than American Airlines or Delta 1st class passengers (I have flown both 1st class). As the former flight attendent from the 1970s on here posted, there has definitely been an "attitude" development...and not a good one.
Dec 12th 2009 12:30PM Several years ago, I had an experience on American that was humilating for me. Our office travel group made my reservations (as usual). However, when I got to the airport, a computer "glitch" had lost records of our reservations (for which I am NOT blaming the airline). When I arrived, no more seats were available in coach so they put me in first class. When the meal was served, I started eating. Within just a few minutes, a highly irate FA confronted me, and said, "Why didn't you tell me that you had ordered vegeterian?" (I NEVER ORDERED VEGETERIAN). I calmly tried to explain to her that I never ordered vegetarian, have NEVER ordered vegetarian, and got out my travel agenda from the travel agency which did not show any special meals being requested. (I have since found out that this can cause a lot of problems for the FAs, so I understand her ire; however, I was totally clueless since I never requested any special meal). She proceded to stand in the aisle and say in a loud, angry voice, that she knew exactly what I had been thinking...how I was going to get a "better" meal since I had been bumped to 1st class so I "pretended" not to know that I had ordered a vegeterian meal. I contacted my travel company from the air, and they also confirmed that NO SPECIAL MEAL had been requested on my reservation. She still kept yelling at me. I just apoligized profusely (for something I DIDN'T do). Obviously, the computer glitch that messed up the reservations in the first place also caused confusion here. People were staring and turning around to look at me, and I was so embarrassed. I WILL NEVER, EVER FLY AMERIAN AIRLINES AGAIN!
Oct 13th 2009 11:19PM OK, he buys million $$ apartment in NYC, a Mercedes, a BMW, (not counting the Porsche SUV he bought his mistress), goes for trips to France (with mistress in tow), says his kids don't mind being in front of cameras...then 3 days later (when he is essentially dropped from the TLC show) forbids cameras & stops production "to protect" his kids...YET.. HE allows them to be filmed with him just days after that???? And rode over on his 4-wheeler to SIGN AUTOGRAPHS??? Oh, & I heard that HE is working on TV deals of his own that would allow filming at times of his kids??? What's this? WHERE ARE THE TRUST FUNDS FOR THESE KIDS?? Somebody get the judge to set up monies for the little ones...make this egotistical, selfish man stop spending so much(HE was ruled in violation of the agreement...not Kate). Good for the judge to also ask for an accounting of how she has spent the money. What a train-wreck!
Sep 14th 2009 7:28PM West is NOT at all a class act...his last album didn't do well so he's out there makiing sure he gets talked about...for good or bad. The problem is that he took away the moment from a true winner. He is so full of himself that he doesn't care what he does to other people as long as he has his pitiful time in the spotlight...no Kanye West albums for me...he's uncivil, rude, classless.
Jun 17th 2009 12:04PM The issue here is NOT parental responsibility. Whether or not you or I would allow our child to fly unaccompanied is not the issue. The fact is: a) the airlines offers this service FOR AN EXTRA FEE; b) parents cannot accompany their child to the gate in every case; c) the AIRLINES is at fault here.
Oct 25th 2008 5:54PM I forgot to add that after we changed the lock to the pool area, the previous owner actually called us and told us how "rude" we were for not letting their daughter use the pool because they had put that pool in just for her. Well, they sold the house, we both worked, and didn't want kids (of any age) using the pool for their safety.
Oct 25th 2008 5:47PM While I don't agree with what the older woman did, I can feel her pain. It costs a lot of money for landscaping. Our family was taught that we did not go into another's yard unless we were invited to play with the kids there.
No one respects anyone else's property anymore. Instead, kids today are being raised with a sense of entitlement. When we moved to another state years ago, we bought a home with a swimming pool. The previous owner's teenage daughter would show up (uninvited...we didn't even know them except through the realtor) with a bunch of her friends and procede to use the pool and start one big old pary (she had kept a key to the locked pool area). When my elderly mother went out and asked them to please leave, they cursed her, threw chairs into the pool, etc. She called me at work and I went home to help her. We got the lock to the pool area changed that very day.
Aug 5th 2008 3:17PM Several years ago, I was on a packed flight from New York to Denver. I had an aisle seat, the seat in the middle was vacant (they were still boarding), and another lady was in the window seat. I looked up to see a flight attendant with a hugely obese woman next to me. I was asked to move to the middle seat (regardless of the fact that I ALWAYS book the aisle seat and that was the seat on my boarding pass). The arm rest was raised so this gargantuan woman could sit down. Half of her upper body was mashed over my left side and arm...I was practically sitting on just one hip, and the other passenger by the window was squashed into the side of the plane. When a snack was served, the woman was so obese THAT SHE COULDN'T EVEN LOWER THE TRAY in front of her. When we arrived in Denver, I fell getting out of the aisle because my left hip and leg (that she had been squashing) had gone to sleep, and I had to wait to get the blood flowing again before I could walk. IF YOU CANNOT FIT INTO A SEAT AND HAVE TO SPILL OVER INTO THE ONE NEXT TO IT, THEN YOU SHOULD HAVE TO BUY 2 SEATS. NOT TO DO SO DISCRIMINATES AGAINST THE PERSON WHO PAID FULL FARE FOR A SEAT, BUT HAS TO END UP TURNING THEIR BODY SIDEWAYS (SITTING ON JUST ONE HIP) FOR OVER AN HOUR.
