It’s so close to the weekend, but not close enough. I feel a little “rant-y”, so I thought I’d talk about travel pet peeves. I know I have more than three, but these are the ones that are bugging me today.
1) People who hold up the security line. And I don’t mean old people or people with kids or other legitimate reasons for being slow. I mean the people like Mr. Bean in “Love Actually”. And people who stand at the end of the X-ray line, putting their change, keys, wallet, laptop, glasses, phone, book, liquids bag, shoes, and other detritus into their bag. Pick up your bins and move to the benches!
2) People who have seats at the back of the plane but put their suitcase in a bin at the front of the plane. Why?? WHY?? Please just at least check near your seat before taking someone else’s spot!
3) Rude people. I know my rant today makes me seem impatient, but honestly I am a very patient person. However, people who are needlessly rude just baffle me. Pushing to the front of the plane, cutting in line, yelling at people for things that are not their fault…. Please try to be kind to your fellow passengers!
Readers, got any travel pet peeves bothering you today?
Oh! And if you have a minute, check out this clip that our very own Gary Leff did for the Colbert Report the other night. Hilarious!!!
