I travel a lot. There are some behaviors I encounter regularly in my travels that make me want to accidentally on purpose spill my drink on people. It seems to me that a hint of self awareness is all it would take to identify these behaviors as no-no’s. Perhaps people just don’t care to be courteous.
But, you know me, always giving people the benefit of the doubt and all. So, in the interest of helping raise awareness I give you JT’s pro tips for not being an asshole when you travel.
Today’s tip: Seating in an airport
In an airport there are a small amount of seats with electrical outlets. There are oodles of seats without them. If you are sitting in one of the seats with an electrical outlet and you are not charging something you are wrong. This includes…
- Reading a book
- Taking a nap
- Essentially any activity that is not charging an electrical device or handing me money
Technology, it’s a beautiful thing. It allows us to write, play solitaire, and a whole bunch of other stuff while we’re in the air. But goshdarnit if all those 21st century gadgets don’t have finite power supplies that need to be replenished between flights.
Do us all a favor and don’t obstruct that resource if you don’t need it. If I catch you doing this I will be forced to engage you in mortal combat.
