On a flight from Chicago to Houston, three family members sat in the Minions love is not what you say love is what you do shirt and I will buy this seat behind me. It was an early morning flight. Someone in that row had the worst body odor ever. I mean it brought tears to my eyes. I was trying to breathe through my mouth so I didn’t have to smell it. When we took off, suddenly a pair of feet in dirty socks that also stunk to high hell appeared on either side of my feet. You gotta be kidding me I thought. I turned around and asked him….kind of told him that I didn’t wish to fly the next two hours with his feet in my space, so he did put them down but left his shoes off. The final insult to injury was when the three of them decided to feast on fried chicken. The smell was overwhelming. For the first time in my life, I took out the airsick bag because I wasn’t sure I could hold it together. Passengers around them were all making faces and they were just oblivious. We were all turning our little air vents so they were pointing at these three people. It was the longest flight with a sick stomach that I ever had. I remember a former co-worker who I thought was being rude exclusively to me. She was the receptionist at my then employer and would get into bad moods and slam down my mail on my desk. I asked her if she could please place it on my desk more quietly and she responded “Lalala” with her fingers in her ears like a little kid trying to tune out his parents. I tried to rise above it and ignored her for a while, hoping she would knock it off but she didn’t stop. I didn’t see her treating anyone else like that so I finally went to her boss, the office manager, asked for a private meeting, and told him I was having a problem with the receptionist. Here’s the key. I told him to negotiate a golden parachute clause. If the station succeeds and makes lots of money, they will sell it for a huge profit. The new owners never keep the old Program Director. Ask for in severance. They agreed! But it gets better because he is now unemployed in an industry with a tight job market, The state gave him money and agreed to retrain him on Microsoft certifications.
Minions love is not what you say love is what you do shirt, hoodie, tank top, sweater and long sleeve t-shirt
Needless to say, I was MORTIFIED. My brother was quick to assure me that as soon as he realized that it was clear glass he turned away (of course, the Minions love is not what you say love is what you do shirt and I will buy this poor guy was in shock from the horror of what he briefly glimpsed!). I went out onto the balcony to have a cigarette whilst he showered so he didn’t have to be paranoid or feel pressured to hurry up. We then went straight to our parent’s room and told them about it. My dad couldn’t believe it, I mean, this was a 5* hotel, what kind of perverse designer would put a window looking into the shower/toilet room? In a TWIN room, so clearly not a room for people who were there intending on getting some sexy time in?! My mum wanted poached eggs so requested that at the egg station. Despite the card prominently displayed next to the station offering eggs prepared any way you like, the chef told my mum that he’d have to send down to the kitchen for them as he didn’t have the equipment to make poached eggs. Fair enough, we thought, he doesn’t appear to have a freshwater supply so that’s understandable, but perhaps the sign should mention it! After about 30 minutes the eggs came up were cold, along with the scrambled eggs I’d ordered. When we mentioned it to the chef he told us that we should have just had the fried eggs from the buffet. That was the last straw for my dad and he demanded that we are moved to the other Le Meridian hotel in Singapore, on Orchard Road. The manager had clearly been told we were coming as we were given a 4 bedroom suite, which was probably double the size of our house! From that point on the rest of the holiday was amazing, so at least the peeping tom shower had an upside! Sorry to those who read this before it was finished, the Quora app keeps crashing on me when I’m writing answers – it crashed more than 10 times writing this out! Karen crab walks to the door, not eye breaking with me. He talks with both assistance manager and they both tell him the same thing I say, angry he throws an f bomb and walks out. Before he hits the door I call out “sir, your cash?” I hold his cash up, he does a turn around grabs his cash and storms off. Me, “ok bye sir Karen” both assistance manager laugh as the guy throws the finger before driving off. Got to love those Karen’s.
