Feb 18th 2013 5:15PM Not a real marriage...what are you smoking? Just because their MARRIAGE is not your thing...that's BS. I'll bet any amount of money they're as happy or happier than you are. There are many different types of relationships and marriages and because someone's marriage is not traditional or cookie-cutter how dare you or anyone else to tell someone their marriage is not real. Your smugness is irritating and completely out of touch. If marriage was so darn bullet-proof and great, then divorce rates wouldn't be so high. They're together and loving their life and if that's not real then you're obviously living in a alternate universe. This is the 21st century and people do not need anyone's permission to live their lives the way they want.
Feb 17th 2013 8:09PM So you think that you've got it all figured out and how other people live their lives and what works for them is wrong and they're immature. Well, if they're happy and it's working, how is that immature? Just because it's something you wouldn't do or even understand doesn't make their marriage any less strong or stable. I absolutely love people like you because, many times I've seen the smugness and judgmental folks get a rude awakening when they find out that their spouses have been cheating up a blue streak behind their backs. Not say that this will happen to you, but it sounds like you need a reality check. A marriage certificate is a piece of paper that has NEVER stopped people from lying, cheating or getting a divorce. But I've also seen people with unconventional relationships last far longer than those traditional unions. Whatever works and it's not for anyone to vilify someone because they are living their lives the way they want.
Feb 17th 2013 8:00PM I think that arrangement is great. And for all those who are so judgmental, stick a sock in it. There's no one-size fits all relationship or marriage. What works for some doesn't mean it will work for all. There are many people who are giving the impression that they've got it all figured out, their marriages are perfect and anyone who doesn't adhere to the cookie-cutter marriage is wrong, immature, selfish...blah...blah...blah. Well, you'd better be careful about throwing stones, because those very people will be the ones sitting there dazed, confused, dumbfounded and shocked if they find out that their spouses weren't the examples of exemplary spousedom. Those are the ones who are either in denial or completely oblivious to what their husbands and wives are doing behind their backs. No matter if I agree with however people want to live their lives, it's THEIR life and not mine. So I try to keep my nose in my own business and allow people to handle theirs.
Dec 13th 2012 6:03PM I fly for business and I've encountered many flight attendants who come out of the gate with attitude. That "you reap what you sow" is crap. They feel emboldened because our government have made them feel that way and I've actually heard some of them tell passengers that if they didn't like it then do something about it. I was involved as a witness for a passenger one time and that flight attendant lied. He didn't expect passengers to come to the other passenger's aid because most people don't want to get involved.
He lost his job over the incident and rightfully so. Maybe you haven't had bad experiences but many of us have.
Dec 13th 2012 5:57PM I fly all of the time and I can tell you, since 9/11 and the flight staff feeling as though they're above reproach, most are as rude as can be. They have this attitude that their word is GOD and almost dare some passengers to do anything about it. I've flown on American, United and Delta on many occasions and that survey is spot on. When I've flown Virgin, British Airways, Lufthansa and many European based carriers, their customer service is far better. Flying has seriously become an ordeal. But as for them putting up with passengers, without us they wouldn't have a job. And if they can't handle it, then there are tons of people who are unemployed that would be happy to take their place.
