happy thanksgiving. it was a nice, yet stressful …

happy thanksgiving. it was a nice, yet stressful weekend, having traveled from austin, via atlanta, to ny and back via cincinnati. spent time w/ my new extended family, and enjoyed thanksgiving FEAST – you really have no idea how true the term feast is when it comes to a parkoff meal. i also got to play w/ my new baby cousin, Daniel, for the first time since he was born, and he was friendly and adorable, and i nearly took him home w/ me. Saw ‘Little Shop of Horrors’ on Broadway w/ sister and parents saturday nite – the movie’s better.

on my 6:05a flight this morning (traveling first class only b/c it was the only remaining skymiles ticket), i came across what is typically construed as a rich man’s arrogance. this man forced his overstuffed bag into the overhead compartment, actually breaking the overhead compartment and ceiling light bulb. the mechanical service guys came in to check it out (while the rest of the plane is attempting to board), and they say to the guy, ‘would you like to take this out?’, inferring politely that it must come out for them to fix it, and asking him to do it so that they wouldn’t handle his bag and piss him off. he replies, ‘no.’ they then explained that the bag must come out for them to fix it, and he told them to do what they had to do. god, what a dick.

i guess along those same lines, a bratty college girl traveling from atlanta to ny carried on a phone conversation on her cell while still a solid 200ft above ground, oblivious to the fact that the phone should not be on. not oblivious, really, b/c my assumption is that she is an emory student and travels the ATL-NY route somewhat frequently, making her a practiced air traveler, not ignorant of the rules required of passengers on airplanes. obnoxious bee-atch.

i’m not bitter, it just goes back to the fact that rich people can be stupid. again, i give you the paris hilton video…
