People Are The Worst

So I mentioned Parents Weekend earlier, and while it was amazing – God Bless Texas – the flight home was less than amazing.

We were booked on Southwest – easily our favorite airline – and I did not want the window seat this time. Mrs. Earp took the middle and I had the aisle, because my bladder is smaller than a lima bean. Everything was going smoothly, and there was a chance we wouldn’t have to share the row with another humanoid.

Sadly, those chances dwindled immediately afterward.

A woman carrying a small tote bag walked up the aisle and wanted to sit in the row next to us. The women there said something about not liking dogs, or being allergic to dogs, and basically told the woman to scream. I heard a bit of the conversation, and thought, “Did she say dog?” Moments later, the woman asks if she can have our window seat. I’m not going to say no – although I thought it – so she sat down. Inside this makeshift tote bag was a small white dog, poking its nose out of the carry-on.

This yippy little bastard did not seem to be a service dog, so… what the hell?

Strangely enough, the dog was the least annoying part of the flight…

For the second time in two flights, we were sitting near couples who grabbed the aisle seat in each row. Not together in the same row, but across the aisle. One of these toads was the dog-hating woman. Dude, do you hate your spouse so much that you don’t even want to sit in the same row? It’s an annoying habit perpetuated by wealthy, spoiled asshats who want to commandeer every aisle seat on the plane. Don’t be a dick, and sit together for frak’s sake!

Finally, we come to morbidly obese, white trash Eagles fan. This bloated pile of protoplasm sat next to me across the aisle, while her bloated husband took the window seat. Since both these humanoids screamed “Philly trash” no one dared to sit between them. At the beginning of the flight both were on their best behavior. When the NFL games began, they turned into giant gaping assholes.

This disgusting woman began watching the Eagles game on her cellphone, at max volume, without headphones! To give you an idea how obnoxious this bitch was, I could hear the game clearly through my headphones. Nearly every person in our area either muttered an “Are you kidding me?” or turned around and gave her the death stare.

Being an Eagles fan, she couldn’t care less.

This twat listened to the entire game at peak volume, and not one flight attendant confronted her and no passenger stabbed her in the flabby arms with a liquor bottle. It was the closest I ever came to having an all-out confrontation with someone on an airplane. When we landed, most of the passengers bitched about her while walking through the terminal. Enraged to be back in this awful town, I turned to Mrs. Earp, finally realizing the truth about Philadelphia sports fans.

“They’re entitled. They think they can do and say anything they want because they live in this garbage town.” I followed that up with a succinct, “I hate it here.”

P.S. – Mrs. Earp sent this to me a few moments ago. Apparently, all three kids put on their UD shirts today without the others knowing it.

She sent the pic to Kyle, and he responded with, “Dorks.”

  1. I live in what many would consider a great place, but I hate it here in Colorado too. Too many dope smoking hippie millenials. If my son ever moves, I’ll be out of here in a heartbeat. I’d probably pick Texas, but I’m thinking somewhere in the middle of Wyoming where the only thing for miles is some wind. Not really, Texas would be fine with me.

    Oh, and sorry to make it about me. Bummer that you guys had such a shitty flight. You should have made a video of the couple to post on the internet for all to see.


  2. TXNick – I think the missus is coming around. Still have a while before I can retire comfortably, but it’s where I want to be. By then we won’t need a massive house, just something comfortable.

    RG – I really wanted to punch that woman, but I simply rolled the eyes into the back of my head for three hours instead.


    1. See why I put myself on a domestic “no-fly” list? If I lived in Key West, and had to do a one day stay in L.A. or San Fransissy, I’d drive there and back before I flew.


  3. TXNick – TSA was an actual breeze this time. Philly was empty so early in the morning, and Love Field was very efficient. I’m a big fan of that airport. It’s not too big, it’s clean, and the baggage claim gets luggage out quickly.
