Ha! Ya think? It sounded like he threw a squirrel into a room full of beagles.

Wait, is that sarcasm? If so......

Jerks who let "Fluffy" out of the pet carrier and let them wander in terminals (either on a leash or not) without paying any attention to numerous announcements to the contrary. I can't stand self-entitled a-holes who think rules are for everyone but them. It's even worse when it's middle-aged couples with children. Thanks for teaching them to do whatever they want, wherever they want. We all know that if "Fluffy" pees or craps they'll just walk away like nothing happened to let someone either a) clean it up or b) slip or fall because of it.

There was a report on tv last month I think it was 20/20...companies on the Internet are able to give (sell) certificates, id's and vests that make them appear to be service dogs under the guise of emotional support pets. They can pretty much get any animal on so people can take their pets into the cabin without a cage. And it's all legal.

Context, my friend. Sarcasm about ditzy media-hounding girls is often funny and benign. "Sarcasm" about dead doctor-pilots (or equally, pro pilots in my instructive retort) is often not funny. But even that can be funny among close friends or colleagues. But needs appropriate context.

On a quasi-anonymous internet forum its hard to judge, and I just didn't catch the "humor" in your post. Happens a bit, and move on. Nothing personal.


Before either of us become TOTD let's remember Flight 598.

Sooner or later the service dog BS has to be addressed.

It's such a scam. Nothing lower than a healthy person scamming the system.

10 QUESTION QUIZ: FO or puppy?

constantly tries to hump b.i.tch.es unsuccessfully

you get nervous when drinks too much before a flight

chance will sleep most of the way (and you're fine with that)

medication preflight is a big no-no

worry will panic upon takeoff

get nervous when looks at you too much... or too little.

you wonder if training at academy was adequate

likes to be called "tiger" but looks like should be called "cupcake"

wonder if actually helps the owner, or just keep them around for nostalgia

the quieter the better
