Make that Eight

About a year ago, I posted my Five Know’s of Air Travel.  I have three more, three don’ts.

Number Six: This morning, as I was scarfing down a boiled egg before leaving for the airport (an attempt to not succumb to the carbohydrate-heavy smorgasbord of the near-defunct US Airways Club), I was reminded what not-to-do: Board with boiled eggs. Do not do it. I almost did, until I opened the container in which I had stored said boiled egg the evening before. Phew-yyyy! Hence why I scarfed it down in the few minutes I had to get out the door; Ken should be grateful I did this instead of doing so in the car.

Number Seven: Canned tuna fish…I do not know how people eat it. I cannot get past the stench. So, please, do not dare to think it would be nice to bring along such a sandwich for that cross-country haul.

And, Number Eight? Never smack gum. Surely, you can silently chew a piece. But, smacking and cracking it? No! Even if you are in row number one.

What are the nasty habits of others you cannot endure up in the air?
