    Right. Because adults who used to date are completely incapable of being at the same function together and behaving in a polite and friendly manner. It’s horrifyingly unreasonable to expect that.

    Seems legit to me. My hometown has a small airport. It’s mostly used for deliveries, medical/search & rescue flights and pleasure flights. There is also ONE small passenger plane that connects to ONE “big city” airport. It leaves once per day, but not on Sunday.

    “Security” consists of the old man who checks you in engaging you in pleasant small talk. There is no “gate”, you just hang out next to the tarmac door in the “lounge”. It consists of an old couch, bunny-eared tv, coffee table, an ancient diner style coffee maker, a few ceramic mugs, powdered creamer and sugar. If you use a mug, you are expected to wash it before you leave. There’s also a faded, tattered poster of the destination city near the exit door. If you are a local, or at least pleasant, the old man will offer you a beer or soda.

    When the pilot is ready to leave you all walk out the back door, across the tarmac and get in the plane.

    Or he could do something that is actually meaningful instead of buying some random trinket. Ditto for John…

    …why don’t they just call a cab? if buses are moving, cabs would be too.

    You agreed to buy a house…because of a plant. Seriously? That’s just…wow.

    It’s called “separation anxiety” and is extremely common in little kids.

    It is absolutely right to tell management. We can’t fix a problem we don’t know about, so please, always let the manager know you are unhappy. If you can do so as soon as the unpleasantness happens, that’s even better. Good managers will always want their customer’s experience to be as pleasant as possible. The sooner we know what’s up, the sooner we can make it better.

    Unless the employee in question is really awful, your complaint will not get them fired. Most often, when I receive a complaint, I thank the customer for letting me know and offer them a discount and a coupon for a free drink or dessert. If they tell me before they leave, I will assign a new server to their table. Then, I pull the offending employee aside and ask them what happened. 9 times out of 10 they were just having a bad day and were so wrapped up in their drama that they weren’t aware it was affecting their service and are truly mortified. Most of the time, that’s all it takes to get their head back in the game.

    Women had / have a rep for not tipping well, so they get bad service, so they leave a bad tip…sigh

    I was introduced to classical music via my grandma’s old record of “Peter and the Wolf”. The instrumentation was brilliant. You could understand what was going on clear as day even though the narrative wasn’t in English.

    I’d say your comment was interesting and informative, but ultimatly you’re just whiny and insecure.

    First, Wow. Sensitive much? Do you not get enough hugs or something? Damn. Why are you freaking out just because I thought it odd she could carry kids but, a suitcase gave her trouble?

    -

    Second, As for the weight of the suitcase in the time the comic was written…Neither I nor my mother were alive back then, so I had no idea they weighed so much.

    -

    Third, When we fly to my grandparents house we pack everything we need into our backpacks, which are super light and easy to carry. So in my experience, being unable to carry your own bag is pretty ridiculous.

    -

    Finally, Seriously, do not get enough hugs? Or are you bipolar or what? Cuz dude, there are WAY more important things in life to freak out over than whether or not some random stranger is as in love with a comic character as you apparently are.
