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!!!
