I posted a preemptive strike of this cat the other day on Facebook and Twitter when flying back home to Pittsburgh. But just had to give the details.
If you have ever traveled on a plane, you know this person or his com-padres!
They just finished their big business meeting, they are headed home and just have to get the details of their meeting to the boss or partner. So they get on the phone while waiting for the airplane to fill up and taxi. They need to get every second out of their ground time and therefore, they yak and yak and yak on their phone while the plane loads. Now all of us know how the meeting went!
The best part about this guy was, his attitude. First, he had both headphones in his ears. Have you ever sung with headphones on????? Yep, you got it… LOUD and AWFUL!!!
Everyone’s looking at the guy… as he continues to talk as he moves his nicely folded sport coat around in one of the overhead compartments so that someone doesn’t wrinkle it with their suit case. The conversation continues without a missed beat.
Then, as the flight attendant gets on the speaker to make announcements about preparing the cabin, storing your bags, etc… it is apparently disturbing to him so he speaks EVEN LOUDER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That was the breaking point… I leaned forward, tapped him on the shoulder and told him he was really loud. He looked at me like I had, not 2, but 9 heads!! But he did carry on his conversation in softer tone.
Thankfully we were ready to close the cabin door and turn off all electronic devices because nobody was able to capture a picture of me being passed over the heads of all the other passengers, mosh pit style, in a “we’re glad you shut him up” celebration!!!
Hey Mr. I’m Important On A Plane….. next time you’re updating the boss on your numbers, we suggest you invest in one of the “Get Smart” Cone of Silence devices or, better yet, take your conversation to a far corner and, once the plane boards, let the person on the other end of the phone call know you will call them back AFTER YOU GET OFF THE AIRPLANE THAT IS FULL OF PEOPLE THAT DON’T WANT TO KNOW YOUR CONVERSATION. What did you do before cell phones, Ya Jagoff?

You know when you are about to say something sensitive and you disclaim, “Some of my BEST FRIENDS are…” Well, I write this knowing that some of my best friends are USAirways employees. Just not the ones I am about to mention!
So I’ve done a lot of traveling lately. Recently via US Airways to South Carolina and back to Pittsburgh. And for once, I thought I only had one complaint.. the STANDARD ONE about their Commodore 64, 5 1/4″ Floppy Disk, Tape Modem computerized luggage retrieval system that gets your bags to you well within an hour of you getting to the Pittsburgh Airport’s Landside terminal. Nice an convenient!!
But… they have NOT FAILED to UN-astonish once again. (See previous US AIRWAYS posts here.)
Just the other day an article entitled, As Airline Fees Top $36 Billion, Is Relief in Sight for Fee-Weary Travelers?, noted how airlines were finally turning a profit. Including US Airways logging record profits. And now we know how they did it!
So someone gives me a lift to the Charleston, SC airport. I arrive 3 hours early for my US Airways flight back to Pittsburgh. When I asked if there was an earlier flight home, the front desk confirms that there is and it is just about to board. They book me on it. I swiftly walk to the gate.
I then realize that they did not note a gate # so I return to the front podium. At that point, the attendant tells me she forgot to charge me the extra $75 for changing to the earlier flight. Fine… credit card swiped… $75 worth of convenience and I am off to the gate where the plane is now boarding.
Within 10-minutes of me getting to the gate, the gate attendant announces that, “If anyone in the area that is on the 6pm flight would like to board this earlier flight, please come to desk.” As I am waiting to board, I ask, “Is there any extra fee for those that want to fly earlier?” The gate attendant replies, “No, it’s just a courtesy since the flight is not full.”
WAIT.. WHAT????????????????? 10-minutes ago I just paid $75 to do what you just offered to others for FREE???????
I think I deserve a REFUND!
Cutting to the chase..once I got home, I tweeted to @USAirways. They provided me an email address to which I could send my details. I did so.. I wrote mainly the same information as above but was NICE!
The, no-name-attached-no-real-person-to-talk-to email reply said they reviewed my case and do not believe I deserve a refund.
I emailed again stating that I don’t think they REALLY read the details of this issue and, once again, no-name-attached-no-real-person-to-talk-to email reply that I do not deserve a refund.
So US Airways, it had been over 4 years since I last flew on your silly little transit system that you call an airline. And now, over $75, it will be a loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong time before I step on to another one of your planes…. even if I have to go through Chicago, Milwaukee over to Portland and thru Austin just to get to Columbus, Ohio!!
Glad you are finally making a profit due to random fees…. I will keep tabs on the additional ways you chose to make money like: arm rest fees, no fees to recline your chair but $18 to put it back in it’s upright position, etc. etc.
Here’s ONE way to make money.. charge a licensing fee to everyone that posts the name US Airways in a complaint on the internet! You’ll be multiple BILLIONAIRES, Ya Jagoffs!!!
PLEASE SHARE THIS WITH EVERYONE.. LITERALLY.. EVERYONE YOU KNOW!
It would sure help my blood pressure!

OK. So you’re probably tired of hearing about the Hawaii trip all last week and are on the verge of calling US jagoffs for the incessant gorgeous Hawaiian pics posted on Twitter and Facebook the past 8 days. So let’s just get it all out of the way today.
The above photo contains two classic cases of jagoffery we found in Ha-wa-ya but I will get to them shortly.
So I went to Honolulu to be a part of the Hawaii Social Media Summit 2012. Quite a few people know of our blog over there cuz Karen and Gwen from Wahine Media had talked about YaJagoff.com at last year’s summit.
Below is a pic of the AWESOME audience that attended the panel discussionon which I participated along with Esme Infante Nii, Aya Nishihara, Gene Park, and Melissa Chang.
The whole thing became MORE awesome when, it was announced that I was from “Pittsburgh” and a bunch of the audience yelled, “STEELERS!”
As a little background, The Hawaii Social Media Summit attendees included business users, personal bloggers and a wide range of social media users…from people that have been on Facebook since Mark Zuckerberg had his first bout of acne to first time Twitter-ers that needed to learn the difference between a hashtag and a HASHBROWN! The summit was a blast!!! All social media-ers should attend next year!
A few summary points from the Hawaii trip in general:
- You can’t be a habitual cookie-and-milk DUNKER in Hawaii. Milk is waaay to expensive ($8.99/gallon in Waikiki).
- It’s IMPOSSIBLE to play the traditional family car-travel game “License Plate BINGO” in Hawaii. Every car is from there!
- There ARE traffic jams in “paradise.” Here’s 2-hour jam-up on the drive home from the Hawaiian North Shore that we posted on Facebook last week. We asked for captions and Mike Zeppenfeld wins a prize for this quote: “And let me guess, the accident is on the other side of the road!!!!! “
- I learned, from Karen at Wahine Media, that the word “aloha” is more than just word. It’s more of a spirit. So much so that when you say “aloha,” you are supposed to be intending to give your breath to whom you are saying it. CAUTION TO PITTSBURGHERS: Wishing someone “aloha” is frowned upon if you have just consumed a large bag of Funyuns at a Steelers tailgate party!
- This guy on our plane ride home, let’s call him “Tragic Mike,” (instead of Magic Mike.. see how we did that?)
And now to the jagoffery we found Hawaii.
The photo on the left is a classic #PeterParker…..he/she just doesn’t seem to understand the concept of pulling BETWEEN the white lines.
And the photo on the right is a great catch. This guy had just pulled his solid black muscle-car rental out of the Alamo lot, and he sat at this intersection setting his GPS, rolling down the windows, crankin’ up the tunes and revving the engine. He just seemed to forget about the simple things like, um, let’s see….HEADLIGHTS!!!
So in closing… Hawaii was awesome, the people I met at the Hawaii Summit 2012 were even AWESOMER. (Just made that a word!)
And to the Paradise #Peterparker, we’re hoping that the person from the car NEXT to you is wearing an all black outfit. Cuz they say “Black is slimming” and the person in the car is gonna have to be as slim as a Diamond Head Walking Stick to get in their car thanks to your parking, Ya Jagoff!!
And to the “Wannabe Dark NIGHT Rider” tourist, driving with no headlights, the first thing you might want to ask your SIRI or GPS to find is, your HEADLIGHT BUTTON, ya Lolo Buggah!! (Hawaiian version of Jagoff.)
And here’s our gang giving us a shout-out!!
Oct 11 2012
So a few weeks ago the iPhone 5 was announced. And 10 million people bought one.. well, kind of.. they stood in line or got in a VIRTUAL line to order one. And they will EVENTUALLY get one but, being in iPhone 4 owner, so will I when I walk into an phone store in about 5 months. Why, because I waited.
And then, it got even worse because apparently, people who DO have the iPhone 5 can’t find chargers.. an article from England talked about it and then Bill Rehkoph of KDKA Radio reported about a friend, Mia Aquino in NYC not being able to find adapters or chargers or… whatever…because they didn’t WAIT.
This, plus the fact that our Hawaii Social Media Conference presentation is coming up next week reminded us of OTHER people that don’t want to wait…. the people at the Pittsburgh Airport (and every other airport) Baggage Claim!!!! (We’ve written about this before)
When just coming off of a plane and waiting for their bags, why does everyone line up right along the baggage claim belt?????????????
We would all be able to see our bags and special little luggage-handle-decorations if everyone would just step back 3-4 feet aaaaannnnnn….., you know it, WAIT for their bag to come along!!!!!!
But no! When anyone in the back row wants their luggage, they have to elbow their way into the front row past the person texting their ride that it’s ok to come around now, passed the little kids that think it’s cool to see the “suitcases on the slide,” or the person that thinks they are ENTITLED to a front row at the baggage claim!
Going back to the iPhone, look , while everyone was making excuses and false justifications as to why they NEED one of the first iPhones, I was the only one to say, “I just want one cuz it’s cool!!!”
And to both, baggage claimers and charger-less iPhone 5 users, it’s fun to be in the front of the line but you look SILLY when it doesn’t make sense. How about this little tidbit…life would be so much easier for you and the rest of us , if you would just learn to WAIT, Ya Jagoffs!
