we are now in hour 3 of lateness, involving a delayed plane, a plane with broken stuff, trouble making sure the broken stuff was fixed, and finally a flight attendant swapout because they'd hit their max hours.

Boy, some people really can't handle inconvenience. i mean, this is not fun, but i don't see any corpses, and some of these people... wow.

Tell 'em I said to either change their diapers or shut the fuck up.

Nothing like a pack of whiners to make a crummy situation truly intolerable.

They should fly the impatient people on the broken plane to teach them a lesson.

Maybe it would be more pleasant for all involved if you rectified that situation, if you get my drift.

Just because you don't see them doesn't mean they aren't there...

I see lame people. I see them all the time. They don't know they're lame...

dude, I am so sorry I missed your post when you were here. Things are a little crazy, for reasons I can't quite reveal yet, but I am sorry I missed you.

Q: has anyone punked on your shoes?
A: no.
Q: is anyone throwing furniture at you?
A: no.

then this is not an emergency.

i get annoyed at late flights, especially if it means missing a connecting flight, but there's no reason to be unpleasant. it doesn't make them want to help you at all.
