Hope they begin by screening out the faggies.

My wife & I were flying transatlantic. The Delta flight attendant was this guy cutting up, telling jokes entertainingly, a real card. We asked him how rough was it being away from his spouse on these long flights. He laughed & replied, “I’m not married!”

We pointed to the wedding band on his left hand & he said, “Oh, that? That’s my `fag deflector’! See, you got a lot of fags in the airline industry, & this is how I protect myself. My girlfriend, she approves as long as we get married soon.”

Great story, thanks.

I’ve seen lots of the “other” kind. I’ve got 2 1/2 million miles on Delta.

Also seen lots and lots of flight attendants, mostly female, who belong in wheelchairs, not flying, esp. on overseas flights.

_________________________________________________

Delta USE to be a very fine airline.
I knew several Delta pilots from all the way back to the old C&S airline days.
One Delta pilot friend in Atlanta was captain of their their first 747 flight to Paris.

In my opinion, Delta went off the rails 10 to 20 years ago.
My last Delta flight was Paris to Atlanta, almost ten years ago.
The stew was coming from behind taking drink orders.
The guy behind me asked for a coke. She said that would be a dollar.
When she got to me, I mentioned that I had never heard of being charged for a drink, much less a soft drink, on an international flight.
She barked back at me “ WELL, we are just trying to stay in business”.

You get what you vote for, president of the stupid. Notice in everyone of his spew fests he manages toward the end to throw in “the middleclass families” tag as a relate all, feel good, I care, meaningful, this is what the want to hear, lie. This is a generated crisis, most want to work and he and his henchmen are preventing us from doing so by killing business. On January 1st the EPA will drive the major nail in the coffin.
