Federal law prohibits smoking on aircraft however trust me recently I was smoking! After I had taken my seat I watched as other passengers boarded and placed two bags in the overhead compartments along with a coat. This wasn't just a single passenger but several. As the final passengers boarded of course there was no room in the overhead compartments even though the plane was not full!
Why do these people think that they have special privileges and don't need to follow the airline guide lines?
And I just bet they are the first passengers to complain when their bags need to be gate checked because there is no room in the overhead bins. If everyone followed the rules there is room for every passenger that has a seat to also have room to accommodate a bag in the overhead bins.
Well I believe in karma and what goes around comes around. And to those inconsiderate passengers I see their future with a bag being gate checked and the bag getting caught in the rain waiting to be loaded on board the aircraft.
I can wish/hope for that because I have been on the receiving end of that gate checked bag that had to be checked on a plane, a plane that had more than thirty empty seats. So we all know how the overhead bins got filled! The bag that when received was dripping wet!
Okay so that is the end of my ranting and raving. What is your traveling pet peeve?
