Comment of the week:

  • @Laura posted a comment on my travel etiquette post suggesting travelers not to take up seats at the gate with their bag. “Ditto what everyone else has said: I frequently use the chairs around me for my stuff if they are empty. If I happen to notice the boarding area getting crowded, I’ll move my stuff, but honestly it usually takes someone approaching me – and I don’t mind that at all. As Tricia noted, in the reverse situation, I have no problem asking “is someone sitting in that seat?” or “may I use that seat?” There are a lot of people who PREFER to stand (since they will be sitting on the plane) so I don’t automatically assume that people standing means they want the seat that my stuff is on, unless they are eyeing it.”

Readers, chime in with what’s on your mind! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Hook ‘em horns!!

  1. One thing I’ve never seen discussion of is getting points and miles after retirement. If you try for a credit cards after retiring does the bank see the lower income and lower all the credit limits with them? Can you still get the reward cards – just with lower limits? Or are your big mileage days over?

    I may be looking at retirement within a year. I’m figuring I’ll do some heavy application before that, but am not really sure what will be best.

    I wonder if there are any bloggers out there that coming from the retired person POV.
