Well all trade once in the air. Wouldn't the airlines love that.

Reads like a certain poster needs a MAN who has a magic word in his vocabulary....said word being "NO". Alceste has found it such a sensous utterance such that use of same attracts the school girls all day and all night. Granted, they DO grow weary of the word....but by then Alceste is ready for a new conquest.....

g_rock writes "Creep".

Alceste replies:

g-rock's misandrististic laden statement "If I'm traveling with the boy...I may pay extra not to sit near him! He is worse than a small child. But being an adult, he is handy with the credit card when it is cocktail time....." These remarks are clearly indicative of a misandrist; are not "cute"; nor are they "amusing". The implication from the remark that "boys" (MEN) are only good for their money is offensive. Who's the creep?

I understand it's difficult to cope and accept when golddigger status is identified. Life goes on, eh? shrug

Oh, and, no, your "words" were not "manipulated" (again, using your very own "word"): Alceste quoted exactly what you wrote about your "boy". REAL men don't put up with probable misandrists in "REAL" life....although we will coldly and calculatingly evaluate bang for buck. Two way street, don'tcha know? shrug

Your friend,

Alceste AKA: G_Money

I took boy to mean son, and I think he was joking when he says that his son pays for the drinks, but it would be fair because after all the father paid for the son's drinks all those years, didn't he?

This is when common courtesy plays a role. When you notice that the husband/wife/fiance/etc of the person sitting beside you, isn't in your seat but instead a seat or two away...know what you do? You offer your seat. It's much easier than what people make it seem. Or at least that's what I've done....even on a long flight from Mexico. This resulted in sitting next to a group of brats, loud and obnoxious brats, but I felt it necessary to allow newlyweds to sit next to each other.

Hooray for you & others like you! A class act you are.

There is a huge difference between young kids who's ears are bugging them and the parents that don't give a rat's *ss how their kids are behaving on the flight. Many, many times I've had kids that needed parents that disciplined them and understood that they must control their kids, but chose to ignore them and put their headphones on.

I think they should have seating sections in the back for parents with kids and seating up front for those of us that don't want to suffer with all the bratty kids.

I'd kick in a few bucks to get a seat well away from screaming children.

As long as they behave age appropriate, what's the problem. I expect a two year old to behave like a two year old, a ten year old to behave like a ten year old and I expect an adult to behave like an adult. A crying child is exhibiting normal behavior. An adult complaining about "screaming children" is behaving juvenile.

It's getting to the point I would pay $25 to not have to travel AT ALL. If I pay $25, will you let me just stay home and Skype in to whatever it is?

And another going for the creep attention. so you lose.

pace 6 years ago

yup, really. calling people names because you imagine they should either be progressive and monks or wastrals.

I sometimes wonder what you might really mean.Giving you the benefit of a doubt that you are striving to communicate some rational thought. I have come to the conclusion, the most probable thing you are attempting to communicate is that to you some people are not purists.

Well, maybe you could stop getting Internet and/or cable and make monthly contributions to the T or the homeless shelter instead.

You'd punish us for our wealth?

pace 6 years ago

I don't consider donating to the community as a punishment for my having money. I am sorry you feel like anyone talking about charity or community a direct assault on you personally.

I'd pay extra to fly Southwest that doesn't have the assigned seating shenanigans and lets me check in my luggage.
