Time for another in the Air Law series, my (likely in vain) attempt to insert some civility back into air travel. And, as I prepare to board a flight to PIT to experience Groundhog Day at the infamous Gobbler's Knob in Punxsutawney PA, here's another...
AIR LAW 3: When boarding a plane, all passengers will be required to hold all carry-ons in front of them as they make their way down the aisle. Purses, backpacks and shoulderbags will not be allowed to be worn over the shoulder.
The rationale is simple. You got something slung over your shoulder, you hit every single person you pass on that side. You got a backpack and turn around to say something to the person behind you, you smack me in the face every time. Where do you think all that junk is going to go, sport? That's why this Air Law is being imposed. Because so few of you think. You just exist, content in your smug little world that only concerns itself with what you want, think or feel...and never about those around you.
No whining. You brought it on yourself.
