Dave!Oh hell no!

As if having to deal with annoying assholes on planes wasn't already a big enough problem... the FCC is proposing that mobile phone calls be allowed in flight.

Needless to say, I think that this is a terrible fucking idea. If people need to be in contact with people on the ground, let them send an email or use an internet messaging service. Don't make me listen to somebody's stupid shit for hours on end every time I fly...

Mobile Phones on Planes

Apparently, airlines would have to install equipment to make this all possible.

Here's hoping they don't.

Otherwise I'm guessing the homicide rate on airline flights will get to be a real problem.

    I’m fairly certain you were the first person many of us thought of upon hearing the news of this possibility. They should just turn one of the already crowded restrooms into a sound proof phone booth and require people to wait in line to use that. I don’t even fly often and the thought of yippity yappity ego maniacs closing deals and acting all “my shit is important” makes me cringe more than period or douche talk. 🙂

  2. A local news channel had asked on their FB if that issue would be supported and I asked in return if there would be “Quiet Cabins” like how commuter trains have “Quiet Cars”.

    Ha ha ha. I had the same reaction to this news! Then Steven and I were talking about how enraged other passengers will be if this happens and it will create a lot more problems!
