    getting put in the aisle seat then as soon as the plane lands my neighbors unbuckle their seatbelts and start eyeing me to start moving because they wanna just grab their carryon and run off before everyone else. I just sit there with my seatbelt and headphones in until is our row's turn and it has driven some people crazy.

    Also once in ATL this black girl who appeared to be under the influence of something was yelling at me in the security line to move faster but it's a fucking line so I don't know what tailgating the person in front of me accomplishes.

        I don't understand how you're going to leave though. Most people think they're gonna zoom off but them someone else holds them back and they're just standing in the aisle like a retard for the next 15min.

          This happened on my last flight. Captain announced there's some planes rolling before us and there will be delay. Cattle rushed to stand in the aisle regardless, so that they can be first to board the airport shuttle.

            yes and most of those people walk slow as hell throughout the airport and some obviously are gonna wait for bags as well. Boggles my kind. Travel is already stressful enough but they make these additional challenges for no reason other than to seem busy.

            This real estate dude was in a rental car shuttle with me once and made it obvious to everyone he's in a hurry. As soon as we stop he gets out his wallet to tip the driver and I just work the door open to get out and he's like "please? my family is waiting for me." so I let him go first and then quickly overtake him. Because he's on a work call or some shit. Yeah I guess he's busy but would it kill him to see me go out the door first?

          I think it's this human urge to just feel as if you're getting somewhere.
          After sitting on a plane for so long, it can feel like you take off, sit completely frozen in the air for 12 hours and then magically lower into your destination. So people get up so they can get that sense of "I'm moving forward" even if they really aren't going anywhere.

        Unless you intend to crawl on top of peoples heads, getting up early and standing there like a fucking idiot for 5-10 minutes is going to get you off the plane maybe 10 seconds faster than if you just wait till it starts to clear up in front of your row

      I don't think anyone cares all that much about carrying cash but it's pretty annoying when you're not in your home country and you go somewhere that obviously has modern tech but CASH ONLY PLEASE. It's happened to me quite a few times in asia and also in europe(last month actually). Obviously it's a good idea to carry some cash with you but when you're at a bar or some shit then go ask for the check and get "no card cash only" it's annoying as shit.

She asked me to change seats but I said no, so she took another empty seat in the row next to us which I assumed was her assigned seat. A few minutes later another man comes on and she refused to move and he had to get the flight attendant to tell her to fuck off. Never seen anyone so shameless before

        I think anon means places that straight up go SIR! SORRY SIR NO CARD CASH ONLY!!! and you just know and can see a card reader right fucking there or they clearly have NFC. Shit's annoying and you know they are just doing it to cheese on tax.

        I wouldn't mind if the place clearly has a sign stating cash only but damn.

          In my part of the world (US South) contactless exists, but just isn’t used. Everyone still inserts the chip into the reader, I don’t think I’ve seen a swipe system for years. I finally switched over after having numerous run ins while in London with shitskins at their corner shops not being able to comprehend what a signature requiring card is. Just about lost my shit over a Pakistani telling me in broken English ‘to go back to my own country’ after I explained to him how it works (I’m ethnically Anglo and a dual citizen).

      Franchises. If someone wants to start a hotel on their own they have two choices: hire an architect, approve designs on every little thing from paint colors to wallpapers and the distance between lights, get vending machines, computer systems, parking lots, etc, or alternatively they can get some already existing hotel chain to do all that shit for them and build an optimal, cheap, cookie-cutter hotel with literally no effort. What do you think the boomer looking to diversify their portfolio will choose? Of course they'll pick Hotel McDonalds.

        It’s getting common where places that just hand you your food expect a tip now too. It’s fucking insane. No you don’t deserve a tip for 1 minute of work getting my food together and handing it to me. And people here judge you so hard if you dare to not tip, especially roasties that also work in the service industry.

                I met random tourists there and we would go to eat and the Japs would flip out about letting us split the bill. We literally all just met and if we came in separate they would serve us all individually and we would take up 4 different tables but they refuse to let us split a bill at multiple places

          It is stupid, but it is the custom nonetheless. They may not "need" the money, but some of those people must have either 1) wondered what they did so poorly that a customer gave them a 0% tip; or 2) used your behavior to justify future prejudice against people from whatever country/region you are from, since you're apparently greedy/rude fucks.

      Well kind of. The individual next to me offered to switch with my spouse - likely not out of the kindness of their heart but because they didn't want to be next to a baby for a flight.

      However, in my defense, we had paid for seats all together initially. It was due to the gross incompetence of my mother in law that we missed our actual flight. 1000 bucks in swaps later, we took what we took. Airline iternaries are all sent to me now, and we always arrive with an hour to spare.

      Why do airlines obstinate to put reclining seats in econ as people keep getting taller?
      You'd think the conflicts it creates would offset the gains they make from upselling extra-legroom seats, especially when it results in diverted flights like it does once in a while.
      As a tall person myself this pisses me off to no end, people who recline in front of me immediately feel my knees in the back of their spine through no deliberate choice of my own yet it never seems to bother them.
