'I got upgraded on this flight and my boss did not': Boss erupts at employee for not giving her his first class seat upgrade

'I got upgraded on this flight and my boss did not': Boss erupts at employee for not giving her his first class seat upgrade

Imagine your boss having this amount of entitlement and audacity to claim that they deserve your first class upgrade. This employee , unfortunately, found themselves on the same flight as their boss after a business trip. The two were originally meant to be seated together, until the employee received a first class upgrade because, although the company booked the original ticket, the employee often flies with this airline and uses their credit card. However, that was not enough of an explanatio…

Gucci Karen throws tantrum when business class passenger won't switch seats with her 9-year-old in economy

What kind of mother books a first-class seat for herself, leaving her 9-year-old in coach, and then proceeds to make it seem like this is all someone else's fault? That someone else, in this instance, would be this unfortunate passenger in business class. The Karen approached him and asked if he would be willing to switch seats with her son, and he was willing at first… that is, until he learned that her son was all the way back in coach. Now, most of us cannot relate to the business class pass…

20+ ridiculous airport greeting signs: 'The dogs missed you so much. They ate our couch. Welcome home!'

It's easy to miss the most bizarre behavior at the airport if you're not looking carefully enough. Perhaps you're too focused on making your flight in time that you don't notice some random lady fully doing yoga poses at the gate like she's in a class or something. Alternatively, perhaps you just landed and you're so exhausted that you just want to focus on getting out of there as soon as possible. If that's the case, you might miss all the greeting signs from friends, family, and car service d…

Entitled passenger demands middle seat between couple, throws a fit when flight attendant gets involved: 'We had been sitting there for almost 5 hours'

There are a lot of mixed opinions on which passenger is in the wrong here. You know that amazing feeling when you find out the seat next to you on a plane is empty, giving you more space? That's what happened to this man when he was flying with his wife. He was happy to learn that the aisle seat of their row was open, so he moved from the middle seat so they could have more room. They were sitting like this for five hours of their eight-hour flight when a woman from a few rows back demanded the…

'Think of the baby!': Passenger claims 3 seats on the plane and refuses to make space for a mother with a baby despite flight attendant's request

'Think of the baby!': Passenger claims 3 seats on the plane and refuses to make space for a mother with a baby despite flight attendant's request

One of the first things a young person should learn and become proficient at before embarking on the road to adulthood is plane etiquette. There are three main guidelines that one should always abide by. Window etiquette comes first, followed by aisle etiquette, and finally—possibly the most crucial—baby/parent etiquette. The original poster (OP) is traveling with her 19-month-old son on a three-hour flight. As instructed by the airline, she only purchased one seat, hoping the baby would drift…

'Any discomfort is the result of their own choices': Traveller insists on reclining their airline seat to get back at poorly-behaved toddler

Parents who travel with young kids deserve a medal of some sort. Going to the airport as an adult can be a stressful experience on its own, let alone bringing along your 15-month-old who loves screaming and throwing handfuls of Cheerios. Lots of people will see your kiddo and give you a smile, because kids are super cute. What's less cute is a toddler who is on your actual flight . The little ones just can't sit still! They want to run around and play. They can't understand why they're expected…

'Ma'am, what do you want me to do?': Karen accuses passenger on flight of shaking the seat and interrupting her sleep, cue petty payback

There are certain recurring characters on flights that you cannot escape no matter how hard you try. These characters range from the crying babies to the perpetual coughers to the entitled Karens. Here, we've got a Karen who was attempting to use her tray table as a pillow (already a strange choice). She started to throw a tantrum after accusing the passenger in front of her of intentionally shaking the seat too much, thereby preventing her from getting her much-needed beauty rest. The passenge…

'They left without me': Family leaves daughter behind when they go on vacation, texting photos of resort after weeks of radio silence

Forgetful parents are one thing, but when they fail to tell you they're going on vacation, that's a whole other can of worms. I remember my parents once forgot to tell me that they were visiting my state. When I found out (via pictures on Facebook, mind you) I was absolutely livid. I could have taken time off to spend with them but instead, I was stuck on a big project and couldn't drop everything at the last second. Plus, I didn't even really want to see them at that point. How could they forg…

Common courtesy is not exactly something that strangers on airplanes seem to exhibit anymore. These days, people are taking their shoes off and parading around in their bare feet. They're hogging the shared arm rests. They're extending their legs beyond their own personal space. Whatever happened to even the slightest sliver of respect people used to show for one another on flights? This passenger had it with one particular phenomenon, and it was at the end of the travel experience. Yes, we're…

27 Wholesome Posts for Overworked Employees Who Need a Vacation

Take me away, far, far away. Let me use my PTO and take a day off. Please, boss, don't make me stay. See, that rhymes. I'm a good rhymer. I also really need a vacation. Employees get PTO but if we're being honest, it's frowned upon to take them. A job is like a marriage. Remember your vows. ‘I, worker, take you, job, to be my partner, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better or worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish'… you get the idea.

'Last warning...': Aisle passenger disrespects man's personal space the entire flight and keeps closing the window to bother him, man settles the score once they land

It's crucial to learn flight etiquette before boarding an airplane. Proper flight etiquette comprises three distinct components, namely aisle and window manners, light on/off timing, and toilet passage. The story that follows is an account of a frustrated passenger. In order to enjoy the short cross-country flight, the Original Poster (OP) specifically reserved a window seat. But the aisle passenger continued to close the window shades, going against the wishes of OP and, in a way, depriving hi…
