I seem to spend my life in airplanes these days. Whilst I am still fascinated and perplexed how the darn things stay up there are one or two areas of flying that irk me somewhat. For one, the incessant yapping over the speakers before take-off. It seems all so redundant to me. I don't need to be told where the lavatories are, my seat is already in its upright position, my carry- on-bags are presently where they should be (even though, I'm told, they may shift in flight!) I don't care how much they appreciate my business, and I don't smoke anyway! So please shut the hell up and get this thing airborne!
Then, just as I start to relax and savor a little peace and quiet, they repeat the whole bloody spiel in Spanish. Please!!!
