When Good Manners Get Left at the Gate

She told the person she was speaking with to call her back. And then, in a really loud voice, she gave her cellphone number to the person she was on the phone with. I committed that number to memory. And then I waited about 10 seconds and called her cell. When she answered, I told her she was being too loud and everyone on board the plane could hear every word of her conversation.

I wish I'd been on your flight; that must have been hysterical (and yes, very annoying listening to her) You Rock!!

You are so smart! Here is a big cyber shout of THANK YOU. How many of us want to hear the woes of personal squabble in the close confines of an aircraft cabin. All of us who overhear (or how can we not hear some of these conversations?) personal matters that I really do now want to know--and neither does anyone else unless there are lurking voyeurs. Man, I hope there is someone like you on every flight I take. Keep up the good work.

Good news: she shut up. Bad news: she has YOUR cell number.

Maybe we can arm the flight attendents or air marshals with squirt guns. I used one to train my dog to quit barking when I tell him 'no bark.' Now I only have to show it to him.

this stuff is not limited to airline cabin. I was subjected to this in a crowded shuttle bus en route to KOAK.

Classic response - love it. BTW, the squirt gun mentioned by rofagereng works with cats too <snicker>.

note: animals learn more quickly than people; efficacy of squirt gun questionable (but fun)

REPLY TO bcfd29: Flex cuffs are a good start, but it still begs the question, "If silence is golden, why is duct tape silver?"
