Off The Plane, Or My Rules For Saner Travel, Part 2

It shouldn’t be so hard, should it?  I mean, the hard part is over – now all you need to do is wend your way through the airport to your preferred mode of ground transportation.gty_jfk_airport_thg_120117_wb


1.  Do NOT stand in the aisle while you put away all the crap you took out in flight.  Step into your row until you are actually ready to move forward.

2.  If we each let at least one person step into the aisle to exit, we won’t be delayed by much, and look!  you did a good deed.

3.  While waiting for your baggage (assuming you checked rather than forced your way on board with 87 different bags that you crammed into two for boarding, but now are being carried separately), spread out a little.  The bags are not going to move faster because you are all standing five deep right.where.they.exit.

4.  If you’re going to take a taxi, enter the queue at the end.  Just because some other loser took the chain down does not mean you get to jump the line at that spot.

5.  In any line, leave some space in front of you.  If I can feel your breath, you’re too close.  And by the way, the line does not move faster because you are crawling up my ass.

And as I said before:

Just be courteous. In fact, you can even be friendly. If you get rebuffed, so what? You’ll most likely never see that idiot again.

Sane travels!

    ALL OF THESE THINGS!! I just wait until last usually. I’m never in a hurry and I don’t want to be pushed around.
