Is it my imagination, or have air travelers become increasingly rude, inconsiderate and even obnoxious in recent years?
It seems that on every trip I take nowadays, there is someone who either just doesn’t understand basic passenger etiquette or worse, is so self-centered that they just don’t care if their behavior affects others in a negative way.
The ‘abusers’ are many and varied.
They include (but are not limited to) those who are tardy and unprepared for check-in and at security. Others ignore baggage allowance rules, while still others are apparently oblivious to annoucements at boarding gates and on board aircrat. Then there are those that I refer to as the sprawlers, the yellers and the smelly.
I’ve had it with all of them.
So, over the next few months, I plan to write a series of posts about a wide variety of terrible travelers that we have encountered over the years — with the hope that perhaps one or two of them can read and perhaps amend their awful ways. 🙂
So, are you frustrated and fed up with terrible travelers too?
If so, please feel free to contribute your story (or stories) via the comment section below. As this series may end up becoming a book (count on it) please leave us your real email address so that we may contact you if your story is chosen for inclusion.
