The Morning Shave

How I Accidentally Discovered a Way to Cash Out a Store Gift Card. – Not sure which state the writer is based out of, but in California, if the gift card is less than $10, you can cash it out.

United Airlines Will Reimburse All Passengers on Flight Where Man Was Forcibly Removed. – United is finally taking some corrective action to repair their damaged reputation.

Tourist Carves His Family’s Names Onto the Colosseum. – This has to be one of the most idiotic things a person can do.  Don’t ruin our history by “tagging” historical buildings, monuments, and ruins!!!


I hate vandals!!!


Delta Capitalizes on United Woes, Raises Denied Boarding Compensation. – In my opinion, there shouldn’t be a cap.  Keep raising the amount until someone takes it.  Eventually, everyone has their price.

A College Student Tried to Prank Southwest but the Customer Service Rep Was Ready. – In my experience, Southwest has some of the best Twitter reps of any airline.  I love that they had such a great response to this guy’s attempt at “trolling.”
