Why Does Traveling Still Suck in 2017 ?
As I sit in the boarding area of Logan airport I can’t help but wonder, Why does traveling suck so much?
It’s 2017 for Christ’s sake!
We have cars that run on electricity, houses that can be powered by the sun, and I still have to sit in a tiny cabin with a bunch of smelly strangers.
Now obviously I get that if you are rich this doesn’t apply to you, but I grew up in Taunton and I’m currently writing these blog posts for free during my spare time, so I am clearly naht rich.
If I’m being honest here, I genuinely thought there would be flying cars by now! Or even jet packs! I’d be flying around the country like Iron Man and if need be, I would sell my car and my liver just to finance it.
But back to my complaining…
When I arrived at Logan, after checking in I received my boarding pass and noticed that it said: Seats will be assigned 10-45 minutes prior to Departure.
I am no travel expert but I don’t think it’s that hard to assign seats to everyone boarding the plane at least 24 hours in advance. Instead, I’m stuck sitting here alone drinking my hot black coffee like a 75-year-old grandpa looking confused as hell.
And don’t even get me started on that awkward, “Who gets the armrest,” moment. Unwritten rule is that the middle person gets the armrests because they’re the one stuck in the middle! And because of that, I have no problem bodying someone off those bad boys.
The Rules Go as Follows:
- Window seat gets the window
- Aisle seat gets easy access to the aisle
- Middle seat gets both armrests.
End of story.
We live in the greatest country in the world, so can someone please invent some kind of travel that is tolerable.
