Stewardess, I’d like more warm nuts please!

October 3, 2007

AP is reporting…….”Federal employees wasted at least $146 million over a one-year period on business- and first-class airline tickets, in some cases simply because they felt entitled to the perk, congressional investigators say.”

Wow, $146 million. If you are going to abuse travel perks, might as well go all the way. What does that equate to in warm nut spending? Is there a warm nut angle? Do they lobby, the nut people? If so, I’d say their efforts are paying off. No pun intended.

Why not just charter at that point? Gulfstream anyone?

I’m a coach guy. I gave up years ago, and realize when I fly it is just going to suck, I’m going to be late and there is nothing I can do about it. At least I’m not in front of my computer.

However, if they allow people to use their phones in flight, I’m never flying again. Ever. For any circumstances. Ever. Again. Never.

    Text/email on the phone would be ok but can you imagine everyone blabbing on their cell phones at 38,000 feet? I’m going to work for the federal gov.
