Five Reasons Why I Miss Seeing Drama at the Airport

  1. People in the economy class are cutting in line with the first-class passengers — classism at its finest and the arguments are hilarious!
  2. Passengers arguing with the gate attendants over luggage restrictions. “Sir, your guitar has to be stored with the other luggage. Sir, there’s no need for such language.”
  3. Passengers pushing people while they’re stowing away their carry-ons. Can you move your butt out of my face?!
  4. Families with young children who cry during the entire flight. Whether it’s an hour or four hours, by the time the plane lands, your plans to have a baby may have been ended.
  5. Mask wars. I have seen so many videos about people refusing to wear their masks then being barred from boarding a plane. So much crying and screaming and insanity. Just wear the damn mask!
