Bullet Sunday 287

Posted on Sunday, July 15th, 2012

Dave!Take time to be kind... because Bullet Sunday starts... now...

   
• Rude! About an hour after I posted from 34,000 feet above Nebraska yesterday, the flight turned to crap because of the asshole sitting across the aisle from me. He was argumentative, belligerent, hostile, and otherwise douchey towards the flight attendants... and it was just awful to have to sit there and watch him treat the hard-working cabin crew so badly. It took every ounce of my will power to keep from punching him in his stupid face and telling him to shut the fuck up, but I had no choice. Had I even just told him to calm down and stop being a jerk, the consequences for me could have ended up being tragically bad if he got violent. Because then I would have punched him in the face. I may be a wimpy guy, but there is no question I could have beat the ever-loving' shit out of him. The turd was in really bad shape and I'm guessing he would have had a heart attack in short order had he squared off with me. So my hat's off to the flight attendant who managed to keep the situation under control. That is absolutely something I could not have done. I know I've said it before, but I am seeing this kind of self-entitled assholery more and more in the First Class cabin and, if it weren't for the extra leg-room and space to work, I'd be longing for the days I never got upgraded and always flew coach.

   
• Family! After dinner on Friday night, we were all passing by a van that had a very unique take on the whole "stick figure family" fad on the back window...

Guy, Tombstone, Tombstone, Tombstone.

Sick! And so very, very disturbing and wrong. And yet... funneh. I cannot figure out how I feel about this from one minute to the next.

   
• CAAAAAAAHHHN! Every year I read all the reports coming out of Comic-Con, I am dying to attend. And yet, the two times I did attend, the crowds and lack of planning had me swearing never to return. If only they would videotape all the events... I would gladly pay to watch them online. What I don't understand is why they're passing on this obviously lucrative revenue stream. I doubt it would affect attendance in any measurable way... especially if it were offered up on pay-per-view after Comic-Con was over. Talk about your win-win scenarios... what am I missing?

   
And... I've got a very early drive home in the morning, so I guess three bullets it is then tonight.

    I kind of love that window decal. Although I think the whole family decal on the window thing is a little stupid to begin with.

  2. eek.. RIP .. did his whole family die? And what is the purpose of advertising it? While looking so happy about it? Not sure if it’s funny or sad, but definitely wrong!

  3. Those stick figures creep me out, and not in the funny way…. and this is coming from a woman who has a zombie family on the back of her car!!!!

    I think the window decal is a bit sick, but I laughed at it, too!

    I’m still a newbie (fewer than 5x) to getting upgraded, and I’m happy for the room and selection of food, even if there are some asshats up there.

    I don’t get the whole family stick figure window decal fad, just like I don’t get the “in memoriam” ones – you mean you’re dedicating your POS minivan to the memory of your dead loved one? What a tribute. I do think the tombstone one is kinda funny, in a somewhat sick way. Hopefully he doesn’t mean they are buried in his backyard. The only ones I do like are the Star Wars versions with little AT-ATs for dogs. Those are almost cool.

    Ugh! So right about 1st class idiocy. Yesterday at CDG (WORST AIRPORT IN THE WORLD) in Sky Priority / Business class lane, people were pushing and elbowing each other without regard for each other, no words or eye contact – I was almost knocked to the ground as the crowd surged forward toward customs. It was creepy and disturbing. Partly I blame the airport for being so very, very, very terrible, but really couldn’t believe this was coming from the “elite” flyer crowd.

    I’m thinking that the stick-figure dad should be holding an axe in his raised hand. It’d definitely make the picture a bit more twisted and ‘Dexterish’.

    I watched the Comic-Con Firefly panel on youtube. It was brilliant.
