OMG, better yet, Mr Important is on his important phone call, standing in the middle of Sky Priority boarding lane, inching his way forward. Turns out he is in Zone 1 or 2. and this isn’t even about entitlement or status, it’s about making space for the proper flow of people and god forbid, paying attention

New version just happened at MSP. Casual traveler, pleaded to budge in front of me because she is Zone 1. We were currently boarding Premium/Diamond. I just pointed to the back of the line and shook my head.

Why is this annoying?

Just did this. There were two lines that went into the hallway, and both were shuffling forward as boarding started

Anyone had a scary hookup exp? Last night this guy came over. He was super rough and in the end I just wanted him to leave, which he did. When he was stepping out, he stared at my door apt number. So I put my door latch on. After a while he came back! He was drunk, claimed he lost his ID. And it scared the hell out of me when he said “I’m not going to hurt you”. (Door latch is on with a crack). I looked and nothing was there. Told him so and he left. Now I just hope that I never see him again.
