I am back from vacation! And what a vacation it was. Good food, good company, nice pool, the blackjack…..All in all, a highly successful time away. Plus, there was inspiration for things to write about every which way I turned. (I’m looking at you, super drunk guy on the parking bus!)
The first time I turned to Home Warrior and said, “I have to blog about that,” was on our first flight, on the first day of vacation. During the normal “Turn off your electronic device” spiel the flight attendant gave us, I heard something new. “You are not allowed to use anything that gives off an electronic frequency. This includes cell phones, laptop computers, Blackberrys, and all other wireless devices, including your wireless mouse.”
Now, I’ve been on a lot of flights in my day, and sometimes I feel like I can get up there and do the safety presentation along with the FAs. But I have never heard of them saying that you can’t use a wireless mouse on a plane. In fact, I have never heard them say anything about a wireless frequency before. It makes sense, if you think about it. Of course, that being said, I don’t use a wireless mouse on a regular basis like some of my frequent traveler companions, and so it wouldn’t occur to me to use one on a plane.
So my question is, do any of you readers use a wireless mouse regularly? Do you use it while flying? Has anyone every said anything to you about it?
