Pet Peeves or annoying passengers in the MLL

Just wondering what your biggest pet peeve is in the MLL?


Mine is pretty simple, mobile phone users in the quiet/cell free zone of the lounges. I despise you all who talk on your phones where you shouldn't!

KIDS! Loud Talkers. People who occupy chairs with their bags.


Also, stay off of my grass.

My biggest pet peeves are people in the elevator, to and/or from the MLL:
- complaining on their long day;
- how long their flight is;
- why their upgrade did not clear (yet);
- taking out their shiny FFP card…not because they will need to show it to the MLL agent, but to show off to everyone else in the elevator that they are superior than everyone else;
- complaining the slow MLL elevator (particularly in YYZ).

While in the MLL:
- talking so loudly that anyone can hear them, and 9/10 of those conversations are "I am in the MLL". When lady even said "it's like being in heaven"

Too many people allowed in.

Feet up on the tables, which I mostly see at YUL.

1. Loud talkers, followed closely by...
2. the freaking annoying tongs they expect us to use with the ice bucket! It takes FOREVER to fill a pint glass with a reasonable amount of ice.

Um, that's me.
What's wrong with that? I need a desk area, with an electrical outlet,
( and preferably a LAN cable, which I think is more secire than wireless).
Unfortunately, only the work area with the PC's provide these.
So what's your problem?

I really have no complaints, when I consider that my option is to wander the terminal without the assortment of amenities available in the MLL.

Yeah me too! Wanna fight?

Some lounges typically have a few laptop workdesks with LAN + phone but haven't seen these spots in most AC lounges. Who travels without a laptop or tablet in 2014 anyways?

As long as you keep to yourself, don't stumble around drunk, and don't talk so loud that the other side of the lounge can hear you...... Then you're not bugging me and I don't care what you do.
