Why do I think they also have a handicap sticker for their car.

.....because they probably do. If you believe in karma, they will get what's due them all in good time!

It is too bad you are not notified when the Karma events happen... it would improve my feelings about the world in general.

I agree, in my experience, I've witnessed the "Jetway Miracle" enough times to lose some faith in humanity. From RSW, FLL, and PBI, 15-20 people board with wheel chairs and after deplaning, all the pax are gone and 17 wheelchairs and their pushers are still in the jetway looking for their pax.

I'm pretty sure that I will meet my end by "Beeper car" in ATL.

Don't forget about the healing power of the slot machines in LAS.

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.
Well don't cry and act all butthurt over an often told joke that's been around as long as the V-tail Bonanza itself. And STILL gets repeated at FBO's and other parts of the airport. What? If you hear that joke at the airport do you go running over to the person that spoke it and give them them a piece of your mind?

Ha Ha this happened to me just yesterday. Lady sits down next to me on a -145 with a service dog of unclear purpose. Along comes a United mainline F/A (in uniform) with her dog, the only seat left being against the bulkhead. She starts pestering all the people around her to switch, her dog is trying desperately to sniff the service dog, and nobody really wants to move. 5 minute delay ensues until finally a dude in a full length fur coat switches with her from all the way at the other end of the Kay-bin (as pronounced by the TSA F/A).

You can't make this stuff up.

Sweating my cucarachas off the other day in Silver's box of bolts. Ay caramba! Oh, and the CA was wearing cowboy boots; took all I had to not say anything on the way out.
