A few months ago my daughter and I were about to take a flight when I discovered that they changed my seat to where we were both going to be separated. I think this was because the plane changed at the last minute and the system automatically assigned new seats to everyone. And I will NOT be separated from my 9-year-old.
So, I called to complain to Delta stating that this was completely unacceptable. And they told me that there were only 2 seats together left on the plane...in the VERY LAST ROW. So, we went from being in the front to the back...or I had to choose another flight on another day which just wasn't doable. So...in the back we went.
Now just to give you a little background, I fly A LOT. I don't get sick in planes (although boats and helicopters are a different story). Not ever.
But this flight was different.
You see, right in front of us was a male gay couple. And during the ENTIRE FLIGHT they decided that it was completely okay to act out their lust for each other in some of the most repulsive (and definitely INAPPROPRIATE ways) during the entire flight. I told my daughter to look elsewhere (for 4 1/2 hours, mind you) while I mentioned TWICE to the flight attendants that this behavior in public was NOT acceptable. But none of these Delta employees would dare approach these guys because they were afraid of the "gay backlash" of saying something that could be misconstrued as violating their rights. (What about MY rights? What about PUBLIC DECENCY?)
So, I sat there, completely disgusted, upset, and full of anxiety during the entire flight, especially since I knew they were doing this on purpose, probably with the hopes that somebody would "out" them so they could complain to the news about how people were being prejudice. And I KNEW they knew what they were doing was wrong because the moment a very young child would walk by, they STOPPED this ridiculous and idiotic behavior...afraid that the young child would say something VERY LOUD like, "Mommy, Daddy, why are there two guys kissing?" Man, I was REALLY hoping that this one young blonde-haired little girl would be my hero because certainly NOBODY ELSE was going to be.
I'm all for gay rights but...COME ON!
Then I began to tell my daughter a lesson about human respect, decency and the unfortunate realities of our current world in that you can't just act like an asshole in public just because you think you can...because you never know who is sitting behind you. What if I were part of, say, a biker gang and was so disgusted by the behavior that I decided to follow them home and kill them because they go against my personal beliefs as, say, a righteous right-winged religious nut job? (Again, you NEVER KNOW who is sitting behind you.)
Of course, they were lucky...this time. Because I would never do such a thing. But I actually explained to my daughter that next time, they may not be very lucky, and there are more people than you think who SEEK OUT people like that to commit harmful acts against them because they believe their lifestyle is wrong. And then the gay couple's "we're-loud-we're-proud-get-used-to-it" attitude will quickly be adjusted when they're looking down the barrel of a .45 caliber held by a madman who thinks their behavior is despicable.
Again, you just never know. Human respect and decency -- especially in THIS day and age -- is no longer a luxury. It's a necessity...for survival.
I don't know what bothered my daughter more. The blatant display of "yuckiness" by these two guys for 4 1/2 hours or that people would actually KILL these guys for being that way. (I'm thinking for her it was the latter; for me it was the former.)
As we landed, I was SO SICK to my stomach that -- for the first time ever -- I actually GRABBED FOR the puke bag in the back seat of the seat in front of me. I held it in my fingers, trying to choke back the inevitable throw-up storm to come. And I kept swallowing it back, actually (miraculously) containing the embarrassment for myself. At that moment I VOWED to NEVER sit among what I now refer to as the "unwashed masses" (or people who simply don't care about how they conduct themselves in public). Yes, I know that sounds REALLY BAD but think about my situation and ask yourself how YOU would have felt or responded. Yes, exactly. Probably the same exact way as I did.
For me, flying first class these days is a must and something I do all the time (except for this unfortunate flight). And no, I don't consider myself "lucky" to do this. I consider myself deserving of being able to fly this way based on my hard work and dedication to my businesses. And I really pride myself in being able to unlock any kind of cash flow I want AT WILL due to having figured some things out over the years.
And imagine if I can GIVE YOU an EXACT tested-and-proven "plug-in" business that you can HAVE...once that has made me millions over the years that you can just "take over" as your own and make just as much, if not more, so YOU TOO can live your life on your own terms (including having the option to avoid the "unwashed masses")?

Yes, this IS a very powerful and profitable business. But it's definitely NOT for everyone.

And by the way, if I offended anyone, so be it. I don't give a damn. (You should know me better by now.) I have nothing against anyone of race, creed, sexual preference, religion or otherwise so if you misconstrued it that way, I'm not sure what to tell you. Nobody likes to be put in an awkward or embarrassing situation, me included. And I doubt you do too.
Have a great weekend!
See you at the top!
