Jun 16th 2009 12:46PM Fixing the world economy? Much easier when I know the time. Once I have this watch, I'll give you the secret to global economic turnaround.
Mar 26th 2009 3:10PM Sharon, you're missing everyone's point. Nobody cares about the fact that you're talking about people drinking on a flight. Your extrapolation that this is indicative of some kind of cultural tendency is offensive. Deal with it, admit to it. Accountability is another thing WE AMERICANS need to work on. See, everyone has issues.
Does it really matter if it's 50 people or 1 person? It shouldn't. Inappropriate behavior is inappropriate behavior.
Mar 11th 2009 3:02PM True, he may have been dumb for putting his XBox in his bag, but good for him for doing this. If nothing else, I hope he makes people realize how absurd it is that we have to be so careful about what we put in our checked bags.
Damage because of dropping or jostling is one thing, but theft is completely different. I shouldn't have to worry about some employee stealing something from my bag. And I certainly shouldn't have to get some kind of runaround from the airline after my things get stolen (which is part of his claim).
The fact that this is even an issue annoys me. He should have known better, but then again, why should he have to know better?
Feb 23rd 2009 2:14PM I highly doubt that people would rip on TSA so heavily if they weren't such jerks with more than a few being simply unbelievably rude.
Their general lack of concern for passengers' emotional well-being makes their lack of efficacy in protecting their physical well-being all the more glaring and outrageous.
You will never find me defending them by saying "you try what they do." Most jobs have some kind of degree of difficulty and most of us seem to be able to accomplish them without being so surly. And when your job is as important as theirs, I will have little tolerance for missteps
Nov 19th 2008 1:54PM Oh please, Acela is a joke. I would avoid Acela simply for the annoyingly loud "ding" sound when you approach a station. The difference in time between NY and DC was about a half hour compared to the standard Amtrak. Great post, thank you.
And don't give me that "it says in the timetable" stuff. The point of this is to give you a review of how the service worked. It could have been possible that somehow the extra $60 was a good investment. But this post informs me otherwise. It does a service and doesn't need scrutiny like that.
Pay the same coin and get business class on regular Amtrak. Far more comfortable and not nearly as annoying.
