StockJaw launches “Security Jones.” Servin’ up those juicy tidbits and tiny tales from the bongo security and travel wars. Who can resist such lotto-ball madness? Sizzling little privates-poking moments and secrets that create memories yo. Appreciate your Security Personnel–or maybe they’ll just escort you round back. No one gets through this gate without that blue-glove special TSA dance.
Things to remember when flying: there may be delays, or a police action. Flight personnel are passenger control, not food service. Eye-to-eye contact will be treated as a challenge. Learning to navigate modern travel is crucial. Learning from example is required.
The United Airlines drag-by of Dr. David Dao; two teeth one concussion and one lawsuit-bag of money to the Doctor. Some claim the Doctor could be heard sputtering through his blood–“O.k., we’re goin’ old school.” Well maybe, but he should have been thinking it. The Doctor relaxed and let it happen and got paid.
The American Airlines Stroller-snatch and flight attendant/passenger square-up. What’s not to love? A brawl’s a brawl, and you’re in the front row. Again, relax–it’s included. Hedge-in, increase the odds of being hit–ring the register. How complicated is that?
The Delta Airlines custody-threat/yank of the Youtube family, the ones issued boarding passes mere moments earlier. “Shit. It’s like Christmas.”–is that what they really said, while being bum-rushed off the aircraft? Soundtrack–Sinatra, of course “Come fly with me.”
Forget that drunk American in Japan. How about the one at Omaha? 8-26-16 The guy hops a security fence onto the tarmac, nabs a pickup, stripping along the way, and promptly plows it into the nose gear of a parked Southwest Airlines flight. And Harrison Ford?
So, what have we discovered? When headed to the airport pack a 2pac record. Bring bail money. Post full body photos to Facebook prior to departure. Never show up drunk for, or drink during, any flight. By so doing you firmly place yourself outside any kind of drag-by payday. While the dunce-drunk American in Japan was taken off to jail, Dr. Dao was taken for a soft-serve supper with his attorney. Following the sit-down it’s believed the Doctor was spotted on bank surveillance opening a Wells account. Well stay geeked.
Customer beatings cutting your bookings? Own any airline? Sit tight. But let’s ask Peter Lynch for a comment–
“I prefer a business that can be run by an idiot, because sooner or later, it will be.” –Peter Lynch
“Who’s Peter Lynch?” you ask. Peter Lynch ran Fidelity’s Magellan Fund from ’77-’90, posting an average annual return of 29.2%. Those are outer space numbers.
