so true. And why they get mad at you when they were late. Some people are just idiots who'd rather blame everyone else than take the blame themselves. How much you want to bet he blamed you for his being late when he got to where he was going?Originally Posted by SuperBrat;2741880;
Yep, the uber polite stuff works really well. But my uber polite is a LOT different than my normal polite cheery self. I can be uber polite and they know I'm not happy, but as I am not doing ANYTHING they can complain about, it seems to work most of the time. But some people will not respond to anything and are just total jerks.
I was thinking about the drunk bunch at the airport yesterday. They reminded me of a Jeff Foxworthy bit about taking his redneck family to Hawaii and they showed up at the airport with piggly wiggly bags and coolers. This group was exactly like that.
What I don't understand is how they could afford to get so drunk on the rather small but very expensive airport bar drinks. I don't know, when I was younger, I took 2 trips a year with a group of friends and we budgeted more money on alcohol than on food. But now that I'm older, it's the other way around and these people were my age. I guess I just don't find it necessary anymore to drink to have fun. I do drink, but only occasionally now and I've found that I can have just as much fun sober as drunk (and I remember it better and there are no more really embarrassing photos floating around. )
But I guess this is another case of where drinking lands you in trouble. Airports just do NOT put up with that kind of behavior anymore and I'm glad my young friend was not having to fly with them. I'm guessing most of the people on their flight were relieved not to have to fly with them. They are just lucky they didn't get arrested for accosting the gate agent.
