You are such a calm feller. I've seen the same demeanor from you on the Rant even after many of LSU's close losses the past couple of seasons. How do you stay so level headed?







It's not that serious. That lady is complaining about her phone. Regardless if turning it off makes a difference. She's ruining every other persons trip that is sitting on that plane just because she wants to act like a 15 year old and talk on her phone. Having no cell service, not withstanding.

As far as the close losses go, I usually just swear and stuff and get it out of my system before I get on here.

Beer helps too.

But there is no justifying the whole "turn your personal electronics off" on the plane thing.


I obviously obey them as I want to get to my destination, but I save my best "GFY" stares for the flight attendants who tell me to turn off my Kindle. The damn thing is basically a fvcking digital watch if I turn the Wi-Fi off. Might as well be an Etch-A-Sketch.

I'd be really pissed if I was on that flight and she made this big scene, maybe even delayed the departure, all because she was so in love with her stupid phone.


It's not about her phone. It's about her entitlement attitude that the rules don't apply to her and that no one can make her follow them if she doesn't want to.

you dont even have to turn them off

I never turn any of my shite off

put it away, in your pocket, the seat-back, your backpack, and just wait for a few minutes. If they dont actively see it prior to takeoff, then there's no issue. It takes, what...5 minutes to get up to altitude?

fricking ridiculous

This. I put it on airplane mode, stick it in my pocket, wait a few minutes. Sure, I should "follow the rules" and turn it off, but I'm impatient and I want my music. That's why there's an airplane mode.

I do the same with my iPod.

A friend of mine and I were flying once and he was changing his songs as we were about to takeoff. Some flaming ghey flight attendant came by and asked him to turn it off. He was like 'o yea sure', held down the power button and then just turned it over knowing it wouldn't turn off until he slid his finger or whatever.

The flight attendant goes 'um sir do you need me to show you how to turn off your device?' I've never laughed so hard in my life, punked by the flaming flight attendant nazi.

Once she started using profanity with the attitude she should have had "disturbing the peace" added to the list of charges.

It's about following rules and the respecting of rights of others around you.



Is there something going on in culture that people are so angry or has it been going on for decades and we now catch everything on camera?

She picked the wrong battle. Hell, they made Alec Baldwin turn off his ipad. If Alec Baldwin can't play words with friends while on the tarmac, ain't nobody playing on their devices while on the tarmac.

One day you will kill all your fellow passengers when your plane suddenly becomes a fireball in midair. Don't say you weren't warned.
