Incident on Flight 705


 

I do. not. like. to. fly.

Nope. 

It just doesn’t seem natural to me, ya know?  Being stuck up in the air with a bunch of strangers all breathing in the same sour air.

And I ask myself questions like this:  What happens if the plane runs out of gas?   What if the pilot & co-pilot fall the sleep?   What if we the dude sitting in the third seat down from me resembling Bin Laden is a terrorist?

Generally nobody in my family wants to sit by me.

And if they do,  they typically end up giving me their alcoholic drinks to shut me the hell up.

“Just stop talking silliness, Kim.  The plane is not going to run out of petrol,”  Mr. L. says.

Anyway…

On the way back from Vegas, I feel pretty composed.

I can handle it.  No problem.  A 3 hour flight is nothing compared to flying to Europe or something like that.

I’m cool.

I’m even beginning to sleep ever-so-lightly— when suddenly……

The chick sitting in the back of me taps my shoulder uttering,  “Excuuuse me, but did you spill something?”

“No, I don’t think so.” I say.

“Something spilled.”

“Really?”    I check my makeup bag.

“Something leaked all over my bag.”  Miss. Chick mutters.

I rummage thru my carry on bag.  I have NO liquid inside.

“Did you spill your coffee?”  She asks me.

“No.”

“It smells like coffee.”

I can hear her sniffing like a fucking rabbit.

“I smell coffee.  Did you order coffee? ”  She asks.

“No. I.  Did.  Not.”  I say slowly, deliberately.

I ignore her.

What the hell does the bitch want from me—-a full page confession?

“My bag smells like coffee.”  She mumbles.

I can’t look at her.  I’m becoming quite annoyed. 

When we’re almost ready to land, I hear Miss Chick scrubbing, scrubbing, scrubbing.

Scouring.  Scouring.  Scouring.

I feel guilty for something I didn’t  do.

Sort of like when a police car pulls up to the  side of your car and you feel naughty for nothin’.

She keeps knocking my seat hard as she rubs & I know damn well she wishes it were my head.

I hear her tell the airline hostess that Soooomebody spilled coffee all over her new bag.

I want to turn around and say,  “IT WASN’T ME, YOU bitchy -Tattletale -blamer –mean- icky-yucky person!!”

But I stare forward like a little chicken shit.

On the way to pick up our luggage, I ask daddy if he heard Miss Chick bitching about the coffee.

He smiles.

I’ve seen that smile before.

As it turns out, he had half a cup of Starbucks under his seat.

Miss Chick,  If you’re reading this blog, a mug shot of the “coffee spiller” is below.  

—  (“Starbuck’s Coffee Spiller”  is the one on the far Left…. Never Forget That Cute Face !!

–Dear Reader,  have you ever been in a situation simular to Miss Chick or Myself?

    What.A.Bitch that chick was! Sheesh. Once I had a woman open up the overhead compartment above me, remove my bag, store it in a bin several seats back, and then put HER effing bag overhead. Then she had the nerve to sit beside me.
    Wrong move. Poor girl. She got the wrath of Terri. And? I was PMSing badly that day. After giving her a piece of my mind (which I will admit, was pretty childish, but felt pretty good), I got up…..I fetched my bag from the bin down the hall, then opened the bin over my seat, took her back out and left it in the aisle. Then put my bag back where it belonged.
    Bitch was speechless, AND her mouth was wide opened. I wanted to stuff it with something, if you know what i mean. LOL
    I sat back down. She summoned the flight attendant and asked to be seated elsewhere. She was. And she took her bag with her.
    I WIN.

    I would have picked him out of any line up! (And maybe frisked him too!) My husband put dog shampoo / conditioner on our recycle bin handles because my neighbor man always gets into our cans. When I touched the handles of the containers, I was horrified. I thought it was something unmentionable and prayed that Alex had not been having romantic fantasies toward the garbage containers.

    pilots are sexy, handling all those control and flying such a big machine. 🙂
    Matter of fact, you should’ve went to sit with the pilot, compliments of me
    and you wouldn’t have had to deal with the diva with the Prada bag or
    whatever kind it was. 🙂

    I’ll be prepared when I make my maiden voyage to Heathrow.

    Don’t you wish you just bitch slap women like that? Like why would you lie? If you DID accidentally (and that’s the key word) spill coffee and discovered it, I’m sure you would have apologized. She was just pissed off that her precious bag got wet and couldn’t blame anyone.

    I hope she gets herpes.

Anyway the chick next to me looked at me as if I’d done it, but I didn’t. It actually came from a little girl sitting next to me–I know because I smelled it too. I took the blame. How can I point the finger at a cute little stinker?

    That was fun. You know, whenever my mom and I traveled together, especially by train, there’d be water on the floor in the coach we were in. If it was dry when we got in, then it would somehow rain, or someone would spill water. Consequently, I got used to stashing our baggage next to me, rather than under the seats where they were supposed to go. Once, some b*tch had some oily garlicky food she had hung on the hook near the window, and the damn thing went drip drip drip onto mom’s silk saree. Poor Mom – she was allergic to garlic – and it turned out to be a totally torture-type trip.

    Nowadays we fly or drive to most places inside India – yet, on the flight, am always scared the hostess will spill hot coffee or tea into my lap while serving it. Hmmm. Especially during our last trip – the hostess had a strange smelling scent each time she leaned over.

    lol I have never had that happen to me, however, I always end up next to a “talker” on an airplane. It’s usually a sweet little old lady, but sometimes it’s some dude or a lady that just wants to tell me all the VERY personal details that I never knew I needed to know.

      Funny. —
      it would be difficult not to listen to that person…. I could never be rude. Seriously. I’d probably ask them for their email & facebook account, as well! X

    I simply adore you but I don’t think I would want to sit next to you either LOL. I’m not a huge plane flyer BUT I don’t think I would want to hear speculations of the plane not having enough gas LOL. But you survived and had a good time in Vegas 🙂

    Oh I’m a nervous flyer too. On our most recent flight my hubby had to tell my Master 5 to hold Mummy’s hand because I was tearing up and ready for a meltdown and he wasn’t seated beside me (fortunately I made it into the air without screaming that we were all most certainly about to DIE! and assuming the fetal position in the aisle). Take off and Landing are the worst (I always think we’re dropping out of the air way too fast and we must definitely be outta gas and/or the pilot is feeling a little suicidal that day and is gonna nose dive us into a mountain top…crazy town!). I see terrorists and/or carriers of some deadly strain of flu all around me on the plane too 😉

    Daddy and his coffee is hilarious! What a biatch though! Who goes on and on and ON about something like that in an enclosed space when whining isn’t going to solve the problem any way? sheesh! I’d have wanted to give her an earful but would have wimped out too!

    Hope you and your family are having an awesome time in Las Vegas! 🙂

      Jenny,
      Thank goodness that we will not be flying together any time soon. Can you imagine all the wine we’d have to drink? Xxx

    Hysterical!

    I used to fly constantly for work, and I could fall asleep before the airplane was even in the air. It was delightful.

    Now that I have three kids and I rarely travel, I do get nervous.

    I stick my head inside a book and don’t come up for anything short of “Please fasten your seat belts and put your head between your knees ’cause we’re gonna crash suckahs! Thank you flying Held Together By Bailing Wire airlines.” Maybe not even then.

      OH and I would sit next to Theresa S. and let her scare anyone necessary right off the flight and onto another one. I loved her story – she did what everyone of us wishes we had done!

    Hysterical! I feel guilty for things I haven’t done all the time. (So glad it’s not just me.) And thanks for the mug shot. I’ll be on the lookout for that guy the next time I fly!
