Feb 19th 2010 11:58PM I voted for the yappping, irrelevant, loud, self-centered, stupid passenger. I have been caught in that situation a couple of times and had to really restrain myself from yelling "shut your F......g mouth!!!! I don't want to hear about your "ranch" or the sex habits of your children!
I thought about it awhile and should have voted to eliminate the smelly passenger. I was thinking that I could always cover my nose and mouth for the remainder of the flight. Not so. Very uncomfortable, and I had paid good money for my seat. I shouldn't have to do this.
Then I remembered I could always use ear plugs to muffle the noisy and verbal abuse coming from the other passenger. Sound and smell are the most acute memory-inducers. And I sure didn't want to remember this. But I can't seem to let go of the annoying rage I felt for this woman.
Now I am changing my vote to eliminate the noxious fumes.
Feb 13th 2010 2:10AM Yay Annie!Corporate executives who live in such a rarefied, lofty environment, out of touch with their employees should think about their far reaching actions which attract more publicity than the original deed.
Like you said, we probably wouldn't have known that the original battles were going on. Is suspension of employees in line with the "crime"?
Oct 2nd 2009 3:15AM I sat next to one of these blabbermouth people on a short 2-hour flight. All she could talk about was her ranch, her cars and her children's sex lives. In between us was a man that didn't say much of anything. I was boiling about mid-flight. I just wanted to lean over and shout to her, Shut up! I should have asked the attendant to move my seat just in case. I can't tell you how maddening it was. If I could have, I would have opened up an emergency door and thrown her out.
Thankfully the flight ended and I pushed ahead of her and left. I hate such self-centered people.
Jul 25th 2009 5:21AM You have all had you feelings vented about kids and their parents, and I wholly agree.
Now, what about that adult passenger who won't shut-up even though there is no one listening to her except the passenger (stranger) next to her. This woman was so annoying and maddening that her co-passenger didn't say a thing, but I had to listen to her sexual views of her teenagers and her problems on her "ranch". I wanted to step into the aisle and strangle her. Just shut-up I wanted to yell. could I have asked to have my seat moved?
Jun 13th 2009 8:52PM Now that the 10 passengers we love to hate is over, I think it is appropriate to list at least 2 things that passenger really hate.
1. On a short flight of about 2 hours, I had to sit next to the window with a man to my left and a blabby woman on the aisle. We did not know eachother, total strangers. I had to sit there and listen to this woman talk about her ranch and it's problems, her car problems, and then she started talking about her children and how she was training them to handle sex problems. "I don't tell my kids what to do, but if they have a problem they know that they can come to me to discuss anything about sex". Yeah.
she probably has 10 grandchildren by now.
Here I was trapped against the window having to listen to this know-it-all harpie expound on every facet of her life. I was hoping the man would just ignore her, or tell her to shut up, but he just sat there quietly. I was just steaming. I wanted to lean over and tell her to shut her face, but I was afraid I would cause trouble for the attendant. Eventually we landed before I could throw her out the emergency exit.
2. On my first and last flight to Hawaii I was a little scared, sitting next to the window again. I looked back over my shoulder and I couldn't believe how many people that they packed into the plane. All I could see was heads as far as I could see. The attendants where not happy from the get-go. No one smiled a welcome, and I understand what a huge job that must have been, but the one time I asked for anything the answer was "no". Not sorry, just no. So. you're not the only one on board that has to "put up" with passengers and attendants that you love to hate.
Jun 13th 2009 4:32AM I have read all of the contents above. It seems that this airline person is not acquainted with the human condition. Drunk or not, babies or not, you have chosen the field that you're in. Nothing is perfect, no one is perfect regardless what your training has or has not prepared you for.
Your job is to do your training and not bitch about all of the small things that irritate you personally. This is what you have chosen to do. We, the passengers are not there to soothe your feelings, or alleviate your angst.
We are the reason that you have your job. Deal with it.
I, personally have not flown that much, but I do respect the on-board personnel and their duties. If I came upon someone with your attitude, I will
think twice about flying again with you.
I just fly short stops and have developed a great relationship with the crew. Break-downs or not, the crew has ALWAYS found a way to make the flight tolerable for adults and children. NOW, THAT'S GOOD TRAINING.
Unless we have to ditch in the ocean, and I have to rely on you, god help me.
Jun 6th 2009 12:47AM I might have missed the point here. There are obnoxious people all over this world. Not only the ones that have crossed your superior path in the skies. I think that we are going to have to employ the services of a good old John Deere to pull out the needle in your butt.
