I fly a lot so I know how the system works.
I know not to wear belts or shoes.
I know about early check in.
I know to have my ID ready at all times.
I know where all the Starbucks in the airport are : )
I'll just say it...
I'm a flying pro.
I understand that most people don't travel as much as me and that's fine. HOWEVER, common sense is essential.
My biggest beef about flying: baggage claim.
Ok I know we are all in a hurry to get our bags and get on with our lives but do you really need to crowd around the baggage claim carousel? Just stand back a few feet, wait for your bag to come, step up to the carousel, grab your bag, and get out of the way. Easy right?! No. People feel like they need to crowd around the carousel and wait for their bags. They won't come any faster this way... trust me.
Multiple times I've had to push through people just so I can get my bag. Then when I finally reach it I have to pull it off the carousel in such a hurry and with such force that it ends up smacking someone. Do I apologize? Of course. Do I mean it? Hell no. If you weren't crowding the carousel then I wouldn't have to hit you with my 50 lb bag. Your fault. Not mine.
Solution: Don't crowd and be generous.
