That’s my mother-in-law, she’s your problem now.
Garfield subscribes to the notion that there is a reason why the outdoors is outdoors.
I used to work at a consulting firm. You have no idea how right you are.
Mr. Fogarty, beware the ides of March.
Not rude at all. In fact quite the opposite. It’s her lucky day. Airlines do this all the time to balance the aircraft to save fuel. They usually ask for volunteers to move up from economy to first class or economy plus. I volunteer whenever the chance arises. It’s a free upgrade with all the perks. Nothing rude about it. Filling a more comfortable seat cost the the airline nothing and the food and drinks cost the airlines much less than the fuel. They never move people to a lower class, in those cases the airlines move luggage which costs them labor or they just use more fuel.
The airlines usually ask for volunteers. I have only seen 1 or 2 times where they select individuals. They usually are moving people from economy (back of the plane) to economy plus or first class (front of the plane). They are literally doing this to balance the weight distribution on the plane so they do not have to make minor adjustments to the wing controls that cause drag, so it saves on fuel. The additional leg room and service costs them nothing, the drinks and food are very cheap compared to fuel.
I can usually tell when a flight attendant is getting ready to ask for volunteers. The flight attendants have a script they follow, I have learned each script for the airlines that I regularly fly. I can usually have my hand up just as they start asking. If I am in an eligible seat I almost always get a free upgrade with all the perks.
I have said that for years. I have also described Sunday evening as the calm before the storm.
Reminds me of the time my wife decided to play some horror video game in 3D with VR goggles. After about half an hour she ripped the goggles off. She was completely terrified, she did not sleep at all that night and barely the next. She never played it again.
I used to work with a woman who always said she was 29 because she celebrated the anniversary of he 29th birthday every year so she would never go old. So, we get to celebrate Jack Benny’s 87th anniversary of his 39th birthday.
