The Morning Shave
Southwest Airlines Gate Agent Requires Passengers to Sing Before Asking a Question. – I enjoy Southwest’s casual atmosphere and put up with the annoying singing the flight attendants do at the beginning and end of flights, but I draw the line at anyone exceeding their authority and requiring me to do something I wouldn’t want to do. It’s probably all for fun, but sometimes you have to cut it out and focus on business.
5 Free (or Almost-Free) Travel Souvenirs. – I agree with all of these except for taking sand and seashells. When you travel, the goal is to leave the destination in the same condition (or better) than you found it. If everyone took sand and seashells when they visited, there would be nothing left for the next generation of travelers. Please keep this in mind on your next trip.
Tinder Paid for a Woman’s Flight After She Missed It Because Her Date Was So Good. – Wow, that must have been one heckuva date! Best wishes to that couple. It would make a fun story to share with the grandchildren one day.
Woman stranded overnight at Charlotte airport makes best use of situation by making dance video with airport staff. – So much of life is not what happens to you, but how you react to it. Kudos to Mahshid for having so much fun, and if this video doesn’t bring a smile to your face, there’s something wrong with you. Next time you’re in Charlotte, visit the Charlotte AA Admirals Club lounge like Tyler.
IHG Reveals Name of Its New Midscale Brand – Avid Hotels. – I like the modern design elements and focus on the mid-market. I have IHG Platinum status from their credit card and have been looking for more reasons to stay with IHG because their Holiday Inn properties don’t usually excite me.
