Planes, Old Ladies, and Bad Kids

13 Dec

Dr. B and I our in Houston for a few days. He’s out here to see a few customers that aren’t too happy with his company’s software. I came along because he likes me to travel with him, plus I jump at any chance I get to travel.

On the first leg of the trip from Orlando to Atlanta, we sat behind to ladies who were around 50 and 65 years old. Can you believe the entire time they were laughing and cackling like teenage girls? It would not have been such an issue if it weren’t for the fact that it was 5:30 am! Dr. B and I woke up at 3:00 and was out the door my 3:30 so that we would get to the airport by 4:00. Needless to say I was tired and the only thing I wanted to do was sleep, but oh no! These two women, would not shut the hell up! I was so freaking miserable. Luckily the flight was only a little over an hour long.

Once we landed in Atlanta we had a 2 hour layover. We ate breakfast, at which I passed on my usual cup of coffee since I intended to sleep on the plane going to Houston.  Would you believe that two kids sat behind us on the plane going to Houston?  A boy around the age of 7 and a girl around 10, WTH! We were on a small jet and there were only two seats on each side, so their mom sat across from them, and not with them. The entire damn time those kids kept talking, screaming, playing, and kicking the back of our seats. I looked over and the mom was sleeping like a log 😦 Dr. B kept turning around and giving them the evil eye. They would be quiet for a few minutes then start back up again. By this point I’m at my wits end, because I was so darn tired. After the plane landed, the guy next to us said “hey look behind you”, we turned around and those two demon spawn were sleeping!

So, we will be in Houston for a couple of days, I’m going to get out to a few museums, art galleries, and of course the Galleria Mall 🙂

    Earplugs for the way back. While they don’t drown out everything, they dampen noise, which helps tremendously. I even wear them when I’m sleeping in a hotel!

    Things like this are also why Matt and I try to limit flying, trains, etc. Flights are 3-4 hours TOPS and have to be direct. Neither of us can handle it otherwise. Needless to say, we don’t travel internationally very often.

      Crap! I totally didn’t think about earplugs ;-(. I will definitely get a pair for the flight back, it’s an evening flight and I know I will be very tired.

    What Natasha failed to mention was that the two older ladies kept passing gas and spilled their drink on me. It was ridiculous.

    I used to live in H-town and five minutes away from the Galleria…I miss it!
