When I fly, it never fails: I always end up right near the loser who thinks the “Please turn off all electronic devices now” warning doesn’t apply to him. On one of my flights last week, the guy right in front of me kept talking on his cell phone for about three minutes — loudly, in a foreign language — after the crew asked for phones to be put away.
Then, on a different flight, as the flight attendant was walking down the aisle to check that everyone’s ready to go, I heard her say this in a loud, pointed tone of voice:
“No, you’re not turning it off. You’re sending a text. I’m not an idiot. Now please turn it off.”
Ha! Good for her, I say. I can’t stand the dopes who think the rules don’t apply to them.
