Thousands of feet in the air

So I'm sitting here thousands of feet in the air, heading to Baltimore with my family, with another womans head lying on my husbands shoulder.  True story.  I look over and my husbands eyes are the size of saucers as he points, with his eyes, down and to the right side showing me that the woman sitting in the middle next to him is using his shoulder as a pillow.  I started laughing, especially when her mouth fell open!

But that isn't what I wanted to talk about.  I wanted to tell you how it frustrates me to no end that when the cabin door closes on the aircraft and the stewardess asks everyone to turn off their electronic devices, that you always have that one doofus who either doesn't get that it means THEIR electronic devices also or they think they are above it.

Right now I am sitting behind first class, yes right behind, the seats that start the coach class... That's us.

You know that part in Titanic where the kid asks his mom while the panic that the ship is going down swirls around, asks, "Mom, when will it be our turn?" and the mom pats his head and says, "once they load the first class then it will be our turn"--- yea that's is basically what I had to tell my son when be asked, "Mom, when do we get to eat?" while we were watching first class get served their meal, I said, "when they are done serving first class then it will be our turn, the commoners".  (hehehe, lol, I'm so funny-- that was totally off the subject)

Anyway, that is where we are sitting. There is the doofus about 3 rows ahead of me in first class.  See I waited until electronics were approved but then I needed to vent that doofus head was asked to turn off his iPod because he hadn't after they had made the announcement, and not seconds after the stewardess sat down he pulled out the iPad and turned it on!? WTHelk?  Earth to doofus, if the iPod isn't allowed you can probably assume the iPad isn't either!!!

So being the female that I am... I just sit there and fume, mumbling under the breath in my head that the guy was an "a" class idiot!


After all that raging inside, the next thing doofus does is turn Tangled on to watch on his iPad, my new favorite Disney movie... So now I can't be mad at him... I just realize he is a soft hearted, actual clueless, doofus... And that isn't so bad.

Hope all is well out in blogland.  Miss you guys.  This working extra hours is kickin my butt! But it allowed us this vacay... And life is all about memories we create right? Right.

Until I write again!  And I am still reading you on my reader!!! Thanks for keeping me entertained!

Sorry, but a grown man watching Tangled on an iPad, by himself?

Uhm, yeah. Not normal.

the soft-hearted Disney-watching doofus is kind of freakin' me out... I'm voting with SciFi Dad on this one "not normal" fersure!

TisforTonya said...

oh, and you are missing some awesome weather here... by the time you get back it'll be a scorcher!

Emily said...

The Titanic reference made me laugh. Have a great trip!

wendy said...

What the heck are you going to Baltimore for??
Not CanCune....Hawaii.....Jamacia
Baltimore?? (tee,hee)
That story is funny. There is always a doofus somewhere eh.
Kinda sucks being the "commoner" sometimes eh.

DCHY said...

I have Tangled on my iPhone. Really. Put it on there for my daughters and...myself. ;)

Garden of Egan said...

It sounds like you are a busy busy girl.
Hope it works out OK with your hubby and the "other woman". Sheesh.
I bet she was embarassed when she woke up. Hopefully she didn't drool.

Have a great trip.

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Scifi and T- okay i thought so also, but I didn't want to sound like I was discriminating!!!

T. Of course it is great weather... That's my luck.

Emily- it's been a blast and the reference was true!!!

Wendy- lol @ eh! Went out to take their family pictures and made a trip out of it! Way fun. But Cancun or Hawaii or anywhere tropical sounds more exotic! Baltimore was seriously a good times and I can't say enough about Washington D.C. Seriously awesome city!

DCHY- lol, of course ;)

GOE- he confirmed she didn't drool. But he was young and pretty!!! Ut oh. Lol

binks said...

Unfortunately, the traveling world is filled with doofuses or is that doofi? But you forgot to blast the rude and impatient.
And seriously, a grown man by himself watching Tangled? Gotta say hmmmmmm on that one.
Sorry I missed you in Vegas, it was a last minute, very short trip.

Sandra said...

Well enjoy the vacay. And yeah, you can't hate a guy who watches Tangled without any kids with him.

Daddy Geek Boy said...

Note to self: watching a Disney "princess" movie will absolve me of all boorish behavior.

And SciFi...I saw Tangled in the theater by myself. What say you?

CityMom2 said...

Hah! I like Daddy Geeks "Disney Absolution" theory.

Having flown a lot recently I back you up on the Doofus. Usually for me it's a teen. Surprise
