outfit of the day(bird): how not to fly

do you see the random dog running in the street?



pants, necklace ~ F21
boots ~ b. (a resale shop)
shirt ~ Ross
hat ~ thrifted

our flight to vegas last week was delayed due to the big storms in the southeast. while i don't love a delayed flight, i also don't blame the airline when it's due to something like a snowstorm. i'd rather they were safe! unfortunately, not everyone on our flight felt that way. there was a woman across the aisle from us who literally was the "what not to do" example of when you fly. here are just a few of the things she said and did. (i will try to edit it, as most of what she said is not suitable for innocent eyes!)

~ the first thing out of her mouth was "you're a f*ing sasquatch...no wonder you don't fit in the seat. sir, we're going to need a seat belt extender!" (talking about her father-in-law)
~ she continued to make fun of the women in front of her. i didn't know she knew them until she said..."don't worry about it, these two retards are with me." i hated even typing that. anyone who uses that word in the context of making fun of someone is despicable in my book.
~ after take-off,a very tall man moved to the exit row seat since he was taller. she berated him and told him that she had already called that spot for her "sasquatch" father-in-law. in my opinion, if they wanted a better seat, they could have paid for one.
~ since our flight was so delayed, it was about 3 am when we were flying. at one point, she turned on her phone and started playing video games...at full volume. and the volume wasn't even necessary, it was just music. all the lights were off in the plane, so clearly people were sleeping. she didn't care.
~ at about 3:30, when i was maybe thinking about falling asleep, she yelled (yes, yelled), "who f*ing farted? gross. which one of the passengers f*ing farted? it's disgusting. karma, b!tches...when i have to fart, i will make sure it's a nasty one."

at this point, i chose to ignore her, and laugh at her quietly in my head. after all, i knew that no good would come from me trying to reason with her. and we were in a small contained space miles above the ground....with a crabby woman who apparently was storing noxious gas.

and that my friends, is how not to fly! have you ever had to deal with rude people on a plane?
xo,

  5. WHO DOES THAT?! Seriously. How do people act like that?! It befuddles me. And frightens me a bit. I'm sorry you had to experience that.

    Anyhow - your outfit is adorable! That beanie is super cute on you - it looks warm too!

  6. Wow! She sounds just crazy! Sometimes people amaze me with their ability to be rude!

    I adore your hat!

  7. Oh my gosh, that woman sounds insane! It's the worst when people are loud on the plane and they're inconsiderate of everyone else. PS The hat is adorable!

  8. I want your hat and I love you in glasses! I have totally lucked out and only met nice and awesome seatmates on planes! My bro-in-law is a Delta pilot though, and he has some HORROR stories about passengers who have had to be removed from planes. So ridiculous.

  9. SO chic Megan! I love your heart hat... I HEART IT :)

    And oh my... she sounds like a nightmare of a person to sit next to or near on a plane! On my way back from Europe this past summer, I had some woman sit on the empty seat next to me NOT IN IT on it bouncing her grandchild up and down, but she was literally invading my space because her butt was hitting the shared arm rest between the empty seat and my seat. Her seat across the aisle was wide open... I still don't know why she felt the need to bounce the baby right on the empty seat next to me. Anyway, flying with people can be crazy! I hope Joe and I have some pleasant flight friends in a few weeks!

  10. Wow! That's incredible. What a monster of a person. It would be all I could do not to report her. What a beast. I have to fly to Boise Saturday. I really hope that I don't have to encounter people like that. Bravo to you for being so passive. I couldn't do it.

  14. Holy moly, I've never dealt with anyone like that on a plane! Kudos for keeping calm with her around. I love your beanie!

  15. OMG that is INSANE!!! Who does that?!?!?! That woman should be banned from all public places! I heard a story from a couple on our honeymoon similar to it. The couple was playing cards and getting geared up for a Vegas trip. Unbeknownst to them, the card shuffling was really annoying the woman behind them. The woman asked them if she could play with them and the couple got all excited and said yes and handed her the cards. The woman then took the cards and flung them all over the plane and then yelled at them for being so loud with their shuffling. Some people need to get a grip!

  16. That woman sounds absolutely nuts! The video game playing with the volume would have totally ticked me off (along with the other things)...some people...ugh!

    I really love your chambray shirt - the coloring is awesome :)

  17. Odear ~ yikes ~ wowzers! She makes me want to say, "She was either off her meds or perhaps on her meds." I had a friend that has to have tranquilizers when she flies and they knock her out and she says bad things when she is flying. Perhaps you were dealing with my friend????? hahahahaha.

  19. I LOVE that hat! What a terrible human being that woman is. I hate people like that. We're all miserable, just shut up about it! On my flight back to Boston over christmas I was with an entire college women's basketball team. They had some crazy/ weird refreshment requests for the flight attendants, but it was more entertaining than annoying. Hope you had a great time in Vegas!

  20. Oh my, that IS a bad experience! She sounds like the nastiest of nightmares! That must have made your flight extra long and awful. So sorry to hear about that. Rude obnoxious people are everywhere but it is so much worse when you are trapped with them.

  25. That woman sounds horrible; it always amazes me people like that exist. Thank goodness it wasn't a trans-Atlantic flight!

  26. megan, yes, i like the dog running in the street, but i like your outfit with the glasses even more. remember lisa loeb? you are totally channeling that songstress from the 90's. i seriously feel like virtually slapping that rude witchy airplane lady upside the head. someone should fart directly in her face.

  27. I always think flying is a real demonstration of human nature you see all types and learn so much about how not to act.

  29. Wow, that sounds terrible. Some people are just rude and not nice. Everyone is crabby and tired lady, just keep your mouth shut and act like a normal human. Good thing you are nice. I would have been pissed!

  30. I hate when people fart on planes...it's rude. Get up and go into the bathroom. Maybe the person that farted was trying to piss her off....they did just that. She is a mess. It would have been tough for me to contain myself the way you did, Megan. Good job. What did Chris think about her? dawn suitcase vignettes xo Love your hat and this outfit is really simple and adorable on you.

  31. AH Megan, I have so much getting caught up on your blog. Sorry life has been adhhasgdhasdh craziness like that women! Who does that? Clearly she was not right in the head, was she maybe drunk? UG.... people.

    Anyway! I love this outfit. I love Chambray with black pants and boots, its one of my favorite looks, then when I try to pull it off it looks so blah on me!!! I am jealous of your ability to pull this off so well!
