When you irritate a gate agent, an entire first class cabin, and 2 flight attendants, you know you’ve done something wrong.
What is normally a short hop from DCA to JFK, this turned into over 2 hours – from gate time, to boarding to a delay on the tarmac – of listening to this man.
First, at the gate, he decided to scream at the gate agent that he was going to miss his connecting flight in JFK because of the delay of the DCA-JFK flight. He went so far as to call out to the pregnant gate agent that “he paid her salary” and that she “needed to do what he said.” Whoa. It got worse on the plane. He started talking to another passenger in Spanish, and had a loud, obnoxious, “New Yorker” tone of voice – and wouldn’t shut up. He talked, he talked and he talked. He woke up sleeping passengers. He annoyed the 2 flight attendants by telling them that he only wanted one cube of ice in his drink. He nearly drove me to suicide after listening to his harsh voice.
When the plane landed, there were 15 other first class passengers clamoring to get off the plane — it was actually a stampede to see who would get off first, and away from this annoying passenger.
I digress. See (or, rather, hear) this passenger for yourself. Imagine listening to this for over 2 hours non-stop…
