I decided to steal Evan’s picture and post it here so I can share slang with y’all. This will hopefully prod Evan to start his own blog- he’s a great writer and has TONS of ideas/thoughts about travel and points. Evan’s also the one who taught me the term “gate lice”. Let’s peer pressure him into writing!
I saw two pics from one of his flights back to SFO during one of his recent trips. This was the 2nd in a series. The picture before this one was a quick snapshot of the couple sharing their own Chicken Feta Salad. Hopefully it was a good one because it stank up the whole cabin. But later, after dinner… the lights went off, some people started snoozing- then this:
The woman above is clearly a Fullbright Scholar.
Fullbrights annoy me. Mostly because I’m anal and love to use F.lux on all of my devices, a little because I want to help people avoid eyestrain (read this story!), but mostly because in cases like the one above, it’s effin’ RUDE.
I even see full bright scholars on my rides home in SF. They do help light the way home a little bit- but Evil Kenny thinks they look like “mug me” magnets from afar.
So that’s my pet-peeve for today.
This actually came up recently because we were asking which was worse- a Fullbright Scholar, or a person who uses FaceTime in an airport gate or hotel lobby without headphones. We voted that the Fullbrights were more annoying. What’s your take?
