01/14 "At War with My Teen"

That mother is the mother from HELL! The son may be antagonizing her; teens do that to parents, but she is definately out of control. Perhaps it's hormonal, perhaps it's mental. We may never know, but she shouldn't be SCREAMING at the top of her lungs for no good reason. She would get farther (and better responses) if she weren't so LOUD and OBNOXIOUS! The drama has got to stop. At the pace she's going, she's headed for an early grave and may never get a chance to have a happy home.

Southwest Airlines/brats

Who do the young people of today think they are? Those young girls are NOT the divas and prima donnas they think they are. I admit to cussing and swearing when the need arises, but not in public places for the world to hear me. Kids today are forced to grow up too fast - but that doesn't make them "mature". Along with that maturity comes the common sense to know when to speak and what to say. Males don't wear shorts (or mini-skirts) where all their business hangs out so of course they won't be kicked off a flight for "indecent exposure". I wore mini-skirts the first time around - back in the 60s/70s - so I know you cannot sit without showing off a lot of things. I've never flown in anything but jeans or slacks. I dress for comfort and there is no comfort in trying to pull this down and that around and shuffling everything so nothing shows. Cover up to begin with and don't worry about how you look. No one on an airplane gives a rats' you-know-what! Grow up and act respectible. You'll be surprised how much more respect you'll get in return! Stop acting like rich Paris Hilton wannabes. Just quit making a stink and grow up!

03/14 Dr. Phil Now: Fly Girls

Quote From: v2rot8

14 CFR 91.11 - Federal Aviation Regulation states:

 

"No person may assault, threaten, intimidate, or interfere with a crewmember in the performance of the crewmember's duties aboard an aircraft being operated."

 

Folks, that regulation has the force of law. Anytime a passenger is behaving in a disruptive manner, they are interfering with the duties of a crewmember (flight attendant). Every time we have to stop what we are doing in order to deal with ugly behavior that effects the entire aircraft and passengers, that is interference with our duties. It is also against FAA regulations to board intoxicated passengers. And, if you are drinking and the crew feels your behavior is making a turn for the worse, we CAN and WILL stop bringing you alcohol.

 

These four girls (I will not use the term "ladies") have incredibly poor attitudes. There is no doubt in my mind they all created a disturbance, and rather than continue to deal with the obnoxious behavior, the flight attendants, in conjunction with the Captain and passenger service, made the decision to have them removed. It is ulitmately the Captain's decision on whether or not to have a passenger removed.

 

We have rules to enforce. If these ding-dongs don't like it, then perhaps air travel is not the appropriate mode of transportation for them. I am so tired of the "entitlement" attitude that is so prevalent in our culture.

Here here! I totally agree with what you've said. Although I was never a flight attendant, I did take some F.A. courses years ago. The flight crew was well within their boundries by escorting parties off the plane, having them change their attire (or cover-up),  or not serve liquor to an apparently intoxicated passenger, if said passenger is allowed on the plane to begin with. That was actually one of the first rules they taught us. I have no compassion for upstarts who think they own the place or as you said, "are entitiled" to privileges above and beyond the call of duty (even for the Queen of England)! How someone looks isn't the issue - those "pretty, young things" will get old and (hopefully) fat one day. They'll get their chance to feel under-rated by the younger, prettier girls who look down their noses at them. To those girls: just remember, your looks will fade in time and you won't be in any better position than those you look down your nose at today. YOUR DAY IS COMING! You need to respect authority. It's their job to see to it that ALL passsengers are having a good flight without incident. It only takes one rotten apple to spoil the whole bunch, so you remove the rotten one and save the rest.

RE: Spanking Scandals

I was spanked as a child but only by my parents (and maybe my grandparents). I wasn't a bad child but I was an only child who "got into things". I turned out okay. I do remember one boy in the third grade who was "paddled" almost everyday of that school year by either the teacher herself or the principal.  The kid was definitely a problem child but I think it was for the attention. He came from a big family so he was probably neglected. He acted out his "loneliness" in the classroom. From a third graders' perspective, it was comical - happy it wasn't the rest of us. As an adult, it was cruel. He may have deserved it once or twice but not as frequently as it occurred. In today's society, there isn't any discipline in the schools anymore. Heck, there seems to be very little discipline in the home anymore. Kids may throw legal papers for abuse at them in later years for a spanking. Why do you think God gave us padded bottoms? A good old-fashioned butt spanking never hurt, let alone killed, anyone. Bring back spankings and discipline, be it from the parents (who need more training in their duties) or a teacher, if neccessary. It certainly can't hurt as long as it's only the bottom that is being hit!

RE: I'm Hot, Your'e Not

I used to be a "hottie" until I got old and fat! It was an ego thing. I hung around with girls whom I didn't find as attractive as myself so I would be the "good looking" one of the bunch. Unfortunately, my BFF was a long-haired, blue-eyed blond and I was a long-haired, brown-eyed brunette. Now that I'm in my 50s and have gained 70# I don't feel so "hot" and I don't look hot. Ladies - heads up! "Beauty IS only skin deep". You can diet, exercise and take as much care of yourself now as you can handle but gravity does kick you in the butt sooner or later and your face will sag, as will your butt and boobs! Your eyelids will close so your eyeballs won't be as big, your feet may grow, your fingers and toes may curl (due to arthritis). You may gain weight. Let nature take its course and age gracefully. We can't all afford plastic surgery......then again, who wants to be sustained on PLASTIC? Get old. Get fat. Get over yourself! Inside, where it counts, we are all "beautiful people". We're just packaged in different wrappings.

RE: Psychic Dramas

I am a total believer of ghosts, spirits, "angels", whatever you want to call 'em. I used to attempt seances when I was a kid with some of my friends but never conjured up anything, really. My then BFF and I did witness a "ball of fire" light at the foot of my bed one night when she was spending the night with me. We both saw it  cuz we looked at each other with our mouths gaping open and pointed to the bottom of the bed! My encounter with a spirit was one Winter in Chicago. I was staying in a downtown hotel during a bitter cold spell. The heat in my room didn't warm me enough so I layered all the clothes I had packed and went to bed. I was feeling really lonely and sorry for myself as I tried to fall asleep. I had just pulled the covers up to my nose when I saw a transparent image approaching me from the area of the room door/bathroom. "She" patted my feet, tucked my covers in, and left as quickly as "she" appeared. When I saw  the face, it was my mother's face. I was relaxed and fell right to sleep. I decided "she" was the spirit of my great-grandmother, who I only knew from old photos. My mom looks just like her so it was my grandma Abigail who tucked me in that night. She is truely my very own guardian angel.

05/14 "I'm Hot, You're Not"

As I watch this show I am appalled by "blondie" who is disgusted by FAT people. I am a FAT person but I am more humane than she is. I could say I'm appalled by bottle-blondes! So, we're even! Why would anyone want to bleach their hair blonde? Do they like being the butt of blonde jokes? You aren't perfect and never will be. I have fat, skinny, blonde, redhead and black (haired and skinned) friends and there isn't any one of them who is any better than the rest. You make yourself into what you are and become. God didn't make junk - YOU made yourself junk! Get over yourself WOMAN!

Guilty as charged.....but for which crime?

"If I Did It" was a confession. No one who wasn't guilty would have the gall to write such a detailed account of the double murder. He's finally getting what he deserves, albeit, 13 yrs. too late. I just hope when he receives his sentence he's put into the general population with other hardened criminals and not into some "Holiday Inn"-type of prison like Patty Hearst! This is a man who COMMITTED A CRIME! He needs to be locked up for the current (as well as the prior) wrong doings! He used to be a great football hero but he's only human and he sold his soul to the devil. Now he needs to learn that he can be brought down off that pedestal and that he's no-one special.  Lock him up & throw away the key!

10/24 Dating Double Standards

I've been single for over 50 yrs. In other words: I've never been married. Ok, so you're probably saying to yourself "what a loser" but that's not the case. I'm just too picky, I guess. I'm not gonna marry any joe-jack that comes along then get divorced everytime we argue. I don't quit! I also don't give up! I'm still looking for another Mr. Right. I found one in High School but he wasn't as "into me" as I was into him. 'Nother story.....

The older I get, the harder it is to even find someone to go to dinner with, let alone marry, perhaps! All the older men want the younger, more youthful "eye-candy". I guess it's a boost to their ego. I could care less about how old or young someone is. I just would like to find someone who has "chemistry" with me, treats me like I should be treated, and loves me for me! Is that asking too much? Apparently in this day and age it is.....

It's not always as easy as you say it is.....

Having  been in the same situation - spending more than I earned - I know what it means to cut up the credit cards and not buy "wants" until the "needs" are met. I was one of those with new items still in the boxes, clothes in the closet with the price tags still hanging on 'em, quantities of things that were bought "on $ale" (since it was stuff I always used). The problem I saw with the solution is, once you've had the item(s) for more than so many days, you can't return it, no matter how many tags are still on it! Most stores have a limit on how many days you can keep something before you can't return it anymore. That sounds like the problem of most "horders" who overspend. I was like that. Actually, I still have a few things that are in the boxes, but not because I couldn't afford 'em when I bought 'em. I just didn't have the room for 'em at the time. Not everyone has room for exercise equipment but it was a good buy and it was cheaper (so I tho't) than a gym membership. I have used most of it now but I still have one big item in the box. Does anyone need a ski machine? LOL Really tho, the suggestions were all good ones but they aren't the solution if it isn't possible.
