Today, I was sitting on a plane waiting for everyone to get on. A cute guy around my age had the option of sitting next to me or an old guy. He gave me a horrified look and immediately sat next to the old man. I got to sit next to his mother. She evil eyed me the whole time. FML
It amazes me that people can be so rude and superficial. *facepalm*
This could have nothing to do with being ugly or hot, and everything to do with airplane etiquette. Were you hogging the armrest? Chomping your gum like a ruminating bovine? Bring something smelly onboard to eat, or wear a strong perfume? Were you dressed for a slumber party rather than travel, or had you taken your shoes off? Were you reading over people's shoulders or obviously eavesdropping on others' quiet conversations? Did you look anxious to chat someone up, or let your face show critical thoughts of each passenger?
I'm often shocked and appalled at how many people leave their manners at the gate when boarding a flight, but my biggest pet peeve is something they do before leaving home: the whole dressing-for-a-Saturday-on-the-couch thing. Aside from looking awful (YOU'RE STILL IN PUBLIC, PEOPLE!), did you know that dressing less sloppily, in tighter, heavier natural fibers can actually help save your life in a crash? The type of shoe you wear is particularly important-- you want close-toed, flat, comfortable shoes that can't slip off easily. Being able to move quickly on all kinds of surfaces can make a big difference.
