How Do You Act on an Airplane?
As you all know, I fly for a living. I am traveling this globe 50 out of 52 weeks of the year and see many people, places and attitudes. I have come to the conclusion that you can tell a person's character by how they act on an airplane... You've all seen it - boarding the plane at O'Hare to "The OC" and you should actually plan on riding in coach because the "Premier" line is so packed with the "Orange Crush" group - the too good businessmen that think a woman has no room standing in 'this' line, the obnoxious person on their cell phone, the mother who is trying to board with her newborn being pushed aside by a man in a suit - that has the "Orange Crush" written all over it. Now, I live in Orange County, so I'm allowed to say this - but everyone is so consumed with being first in line, first to board, first to be served, it's in our nature - but next time you are flying the friendly skies and you see that mother, elderly person in a wheel chair, someone drop something, think about your character and re-assess yourself. See you in the skies :)
