You have to truly believe that your crap doesn't stink and you have to be completely in to you and only you. And then your imaginary friend will send you an invitation and membership card....

I peered through the curtain once...it wasn't pretty.

This is a new class for those who are too good to sit with the DWKWIA crowd. It's for the new DYKWTFIA crowd, as mentioned above!!

thanks for helping me laugh this morning.

somehow, i guess i have always falsely believed that people who are saavy enough to find themselves up front can also figure out how to use a belt. or, better yet, purchase clothing in the correct size.

particularly women.although most of the time i see men flying up front, i cringe when a woman is wearing ill-fitting garb. we should KNOW BETTER ladies!

Hope you made your connection and that no other innocent GA's were taken out in the process.
What is the proper protocol of getting out/ up the ramp when the person in front you is weaving or rather large? Years ago I had to crawl up the ramp coming off of a CRJ and had to go rather bad ,since we circled & taxied forever. I debated do I throw the elbow, hop up and down ( my kids say it helps) ,walk real slow. But by the time I figured it out I saw the restroom.

The plane will soon be divided into 4 sections. Up front will be the DYK...IA group. Next will be the DYKWIA crowd, followed by NCWYA (Nobody cares who you are) and finally, stuck in the back is the WDC...YA section (We don't care who the #$*! you are... this section is reserved for silver medallions ).

While I see where you are going with this.. We all have been stuck behind the lady/man with the cane, that should have waited for the wheelchair to pick them up... or the family with kids that can't seem to keep going forward... or just the out of shape ones that can't handle a slight incline.... These situations require judgement and some quick maneuvering....

BUT, in this case, it was two GA's whom 1A decided to CRASH through in an effort to make a connection.. A simple "Excuse Me" may have been an order, but that is not the road the guy took.. It was more of a push/shove his way through technique....

While this thread is considered funny by some, I fail to see how it is Delta specific. Why is this thread still alive?

It had been dead for about 14 hours until you revived it.

And now we know who Mr. 1A is. Or perhaps 2D?

Push them, turn around once ahead of them, scowl, and continue on your way.
