Some Bizarre Reasons For Planes That Have Made Emergency Landings

If you’ve ever flown on an airplane, you’re well aware of the safety sphiel the flight attendants give to help ensure everyone’s safety in the event of an unplanned landing. Sometimes when a plane has to land unexpectedly, though, it’s not for a safety-related emergency but for, shall we say, other reasons. Like these…

My Unusual Toilet Encounter At The Epicurean Hotel

As Joe said in his post earlier today, we enjoyed our short stay at the Epicurean Hotel. However during our visit, I think I discovered one of THE most poorly designed bathrooms in the state.

We were hanging out on one of their 2nd floor terraces when nature started calling, so I walked to the elevator and up to the 4th floor. Since there was a bar (“Edge”) there, I figured there would therefore would be facilities, as well. And I was right – there was a mens’ room and a ladies’ room right off the elevator.

I opened the door to the ladies’ room and the room was dark but as I stepped in to look for the light switch, the light suddenly went on automatically.

If The Airlines Treat Celebrities Terribly, How Do You Think They’ll Treat You?

Airlines get a bad rap, often deservedly so. According to USA Today, two of the twenty most hated companies in America are airlines with United coming in at number 19 and Spirit, not surprisingly, getting the number 9 slot. I think this comes from many of the customer unfriendly policies that the airlines implement, ranging anywhere from non-refundable tickets, excessive baggage charges, Basic Economy tickets and charging for everything from Wi-Fi to blankets and even sodas while onboard. I’ve read post after post of Facebook friends who have been treated horribly by airlines. But here’s a question – if airlines are willing to treat celebrities, Olympic medal winners and national icons horribly, what makes you think you’re any different? Please know that I’m writing this knowing that these celebrities are complaining about #firstworldproblems.
