Bastard flyers

with 7 comments

I just can’t understand why these travellers at the airport are bitching!
Extreme weather is extreme weather – what the fuck are the airports supposed to do?? There isnt an airport in the world that could handle this fog.
Heathrow has set up marquees, put people in hotels, provided blankets, sleeping mats, hot drinks and food, childrens toys…and still flyers are whining. “I dont want to come on holiday and have to stand in a queue”
Oh really? Thanks for those words of wisdom – I’d never have guessed! Usually when I go on holiday I like to stand in a queue at the airport for a few days…maybe travel agencies should start asking customers if this is a requirement or not?
I can grumble and complain with the best of them but when we start calling for people to be sacked because of the weather we’re taking the piss.
Get a grip and realise that shit happens!
Bastard flyers!
PS Obviously the real answer is that we need more than two runways at Heathrow (all Euro ones have 3, 4 or 5)…but I bet then it would be the same bastard flyers turning into tree-huggers and complaining about the bastard effect on the bastard environment.

  1. Here, here. It’s clear how frutrating this can be but as you have stated, hardly BA’s fault. Perhaps these people have not been good enough and it is God who has punished them in such a way? After all, he’s a vindictive bastard!

  4. Sorry about last comment.
    Agree with you chaps. Essentially these passengers are frustrated and so have to complain, even though the point of their complaint is irrational and will be until we learn to control the weather. complaining – is it nature or nuture? Do we complain because it is a way for our brain, psyche or whatever to cope with the constant feelings of dissatsifaction and anti-climax that dog our lives every day, and so it becomes a form of release – a bit like masturbation.
    or have we been brought up to complain. It would seem to me to be nurture. For example, I would argue that the french complain more then the english. in fact, are the english not globally known for their sense of understatement, grit and stoicism for getting on with things, and not complaining.
    maybe it was only the non -english complaining at the airport, while the english we playing sudoku or sleeping on their samsonites.
    In fact, has anyone seen a Chinese person complain.

  6. Tiananmen square wasnt all that really was it? The French know how to stage a really good revolution, and they complain about everything.

    australians never complain either, unless they are loosing!

  7. wierdly the two I heard were an Aussie (who got rinsed on the radio), an Eastern European woman (who always travelled 1st class), and a Portuguese guy
    I think the example of the Cinese is pretty apt though…centuries of not complaining, a revolution, and a state where complaining was banned!
