Used to be like that. My dad tells me how Delta used to be a "premium" airline. Higher costs meant more business professionals and adults willing to pay to avoid kids.

If you have a family of four, you just put up with lesser service.

I would pay a modest premium, lol. Granted, I'm in Orlando which adds to the kid count on this flight. They're all hopped up on Disney.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

Ah. That makes sense.

I guess you could just make a new lens out of some tinfoil and then tape it in with Scotch tape. That would look rad.

I was thinking of just wearing an eye patch over the side with no lens.

I'm just a driver and shopping bag carrier
She has to look at how her company's merchandise is displayed and priced and such and report back

Just tell your GF that spending time with her while she's doing something important to her career bores you and that you'd rather wander around Brookstone looking at neck pillows. That will be well-received, no doubt.
