In other news...

I am watching the news on CNN and there was a crazy story on. A guy was on a Jet Blue flight from New York to Los Angeles and the pilot forced him to sit in the bathroom the whole flight! He was told to give up his seat to a flight attendant because she was uncomfortable in her jump seat. He is of course suing the airline now. I would too, that is so unfair! If someone pays for a seat they shouldn't be forced to sit in the bathroom.

I also heard a news story that sales of trucks and other gas hogs has gone way down and sales of compact cars and hybrids is going up. We all know why this is, nobody want to pay $100 to fill up their car these days! The story also said it's funny that they choose to buy cars that won't use as much gas, but the people still pay extra for GPS, sunroofs, etc. So they are saving on gas, but that money is just going towards paying more for the car lol.

I need to turn off the news now, it's all the same death and destruction over and over and it's depressing. Every day there is news of floods, tornadoes, earthquakes, cyclones, fires, and more. This past week especially the world seems to have been hit hard. It's so sad.

Gee, if there was an empty seat in First Class, why couldn't they tell him to sit there as an upgrade? He paid for the seat, there is no reason why he should have had to move.

Funny about the cars. We lived in Europe and all over there were tiny cars. Only in America the mantra is "bigger is better". We needed a car and were going for a small one but then there was a used van for thousands less so we opted for that for now. With children, you need that space.
When the van dies, we will get a small car again. By then, the children can buy their own. LOL
