Flight to Mumbai turning out to be a disaster

Flight is stuck at Newark for 3 hours. I'm stuck between this old lady who has brought a shit load of smelly food in a bag and an old man poking his elbow into my ribs. Both are coughing profusely...not the dry cough. It sounds like the mucus loaded one. Ugh!!

There is this cute chic sitting way across on the opposite end of this row, which makes me fuckin mad at my shitty luck.

I'm hungry and sleepy. My undie has wedged into my ass crack. My feet are cramped. And my flight is still at the gate. In case I don't make it alive, I just wanted to let you all know that it was nice knowing all of you. Peace.

There was some runway problem at mumbai airport the day this thread started so maybe the delay.

UA flight was horrible. Even after a 4.5 - 5 hour delay, they did not have the courtesy to apologize or show any kind of feelings. They just didn't care.

The airline steward spilled water on the old man next to me TWICE. The first time, he did not even bother to say sorry and walked away. That irked me. The second time at least he said sorry and smiled.

The steward asked the old man, "do you want vegetarian or chicken?"
The old man responded very meekly, "I'll take non-vegetarian."
He said, "Sorry? I only have two options, vegetarian or chicken!" and he kindof rolled his eyes.
The old man gestured to come closer and repeated meekly, "I'll take the non-vegetarian meal!"
The steward was looking irritated.
I interjected and said, "He wants chicken!"

Meal was served and we all went on and onward!

I had to become the translator for the old lady, fill out her forms and drag her carryon outside. Khali phokat I became son to some strange man and strange woman who were not even related.

I felt the same way.....especially the older guy. He was blowing silent farts at regular intervals. I tried to indicate my discomfort, but it didn't seem to matter to him. Actually, I think the old man and the lady were taking turns farting, because the fart smells were different. One was garlic-ish and the other was peanut-ish.

But they are old people, so I won't sue!
