Travel Tips for Annoyances and Emergencies

July 16, 2013

in Flying Hell Commentary

I have two tips to recommend to frequent travelers:

First is to use the air nozzles above your seat to control annoyances from those seated around you. If the guy seated in front of me puts his seat way back and begins scratching his head over top of my snack, I simply aim my air jet at the top of his head. He will return his seat to the upright and locked position shortly.

Second, I always carry a Reynolds “Oven Bag” in my jacket or carry-on. In the event of a fire during takeoff or landing, I can simply pull this high-temperature plastic bag over my head to escape from the burning plane. I go for the “Turkey” size, suitable for meats and poultry 8-24 pounds and perfect for my oversized head.

Interesting level of paranoia, but maybe helpful.

Please don't be around when the lights go out.

At least it was short!

Please tell me the oven bag thing is a joke. I can’t see how pulling a plastic bag over your head would ever be a good idea.

Think about the person posting. Maybe a plastic bag on the head isn't a bad idea… Darwin…
