Talking Pretty miffed, nothing to complain

I had two BA flights today (HAM-LHR and LHR-GLA) and absolutely nothing during this trip went wrong.
I kept my pre-picked exit row seats, the flights were pretty much on time (6 minutes delayed arrival in Glasgow, I can easily pick up more on a 10 minute train ride), checked bags arrived - quickly too, there was space in the overhead lockers (group 2 might have helped), the BoB beverage I picked was available, food in the lounge was nice, there was enough seating in the lounge available, the connection/immigration and security in Heathrow was pretty fast...
I guess the rest of my trip is cursed now.

So many trips s/h or l/h, are completed without adverse comment here.

Thank you for restoring balance, without gratuitous hyperbole! ^,

Don't keep looking for positive things. At a minimum I hope your seat was dirty.

Just yesterday I decided to change my outlook on life, to overlook the negative and concentrate on the positive, I'm tired of complaining all the time, even though as I recently learned I'm blameless, I can't help it, it's a symptom of vitamin D deficiency..

Anyhow, for lunch I picked up some Korean fried chicken at Bon Chon, and it gave me indigestion, I had to leave the car windows opened overnight in hopes that the putrid smell of frying oil would vanish, and while waiting for the Alka-Seltzer to kick in, I voiced my displeasure on a Yelp review,

Alas, I failed,

And that's the problem with BA isn't it? INCONSISTENCY. You can no longer count on a service recovery. Annoying.

There were some shadows cast outside by natural causes about an hour after arrival but I wouldn't really call that sunny.

I lost my exit row seat once, after OLCI, but kept the exact seat number - short notice equipment change. I managed to be moved back to an exit row at the airport.

Great post. Maybe I'm pretty easy going (to be honest I appreciate l/h business class as a privilege as opposed to normality) but bar the annoying climb over seats I've never experienced a real problem on a British Airways plane either short or long haul. Always got on pretty well with the crew.. had "slow"-ish service once but made up for with some additional glasses of champagne...

In fact that's it. You're too easily pleased...! Are you sure there wasn't some wear and tear on your seat?!
