Can I ask you something? Are there grown ups out there that actually do NOT know how to buckle their seat belt at this point in their lives? Every time I'm on a plane, they give detailed instructions on how to do so. You know, "Insert the tab into the buckle to fasten the belt, and lift up on the flap to release the belt". Thank GOD for that guidance! I'm sure that cleared up a lot of confusion for a lot of people. I know they are required by law to say this, but it baffles me nonetheless!
I was also perplexed last weekend when the flight attendant announced that it was almost time for us to land, and we should discontinue the use of all electronic devices, including computers, cd players etc... I am not kidding, she actually said "cd players"!!! Seriously? Is this some sort of indication of the type of outdated technology they are using to fly that plane, because in that case I am concerned...very concerned!!
