I’m in the midst of a quick jaunt to Sweden, Germany, and Cyprus. Some quick thoughts:
1. Overheard a husband and wife arguing about who should get the upgrade at the Charles De Gaulle Airport in Paris. I wrote about my own debate here.
The guy was digging in his heels and bringing out all the stops. First he talked about how he was 6’2″ and economy seats just weren’t comfortable. When that didn’t sway her – he went to the “ambien won’t work on my body because I’m so big” card. I finally walked away knowing that he just had bought himself months and months of hell.
2. Why is it that people insist on talking on their cell phones in the bathroom stalls? Is that call really that important? It just seems a bit unsavory to me so I made sure and get in an extra couple of flushes so the person on the other end of the call would realize what was going on.
3. In Cyprus, I’ll be making my first stay ever at a Four Seasons hotel. I’ve heard of their world class customer service and am interested to witness it first hand.
Sorry for the delay in the Maldives write up!
