Sounds like somebody uses beforeboarding.comThe post is about the luggage carts at the airport.! A grown gentleman greets me upon arrival, brings a cart and waits for my luggage while I go to the restroom. He escorts me through the security and to my ground transportation. Sometimes it takes 20 plus minutes to retrieve my non-carry-on bags from the carousel. Of course, I am going to give him a handsome tip. Now I see anger directed at people tipping other service people which leads me to believe there are other factors involved in the giving of tips and directing anger at those who do.
yes, but of course! Unshaven, wrinkled and soiled cloths, generally unkempt and uncouth. You know the type. They get the service they deserve. Nada.I think they have some profiling going on as well. ie; real tourist, resident, Haitian, too clean-cut wearing nice clothes and always gives $25 tips. LOL
most excellent point. These super casual people that travel with pajama paints, sport jerseys, crocs and tennis shoes that look like they have been shoveling manure are not getting a cart or utilizing a porter anyway. They do not want to spend for service. Which is better than using the service and not tipping an appropriate amount.My Grandfather and Father always dressed for Church, and for Traveling .. I even have a photo of him on a small Bote in the Summer , Upstate NY in short sleeve Dress Shirt and Slacks and shoes . He knew we would take photos, so he dressed.
IMO, If it were not for the Very CASUAL Dress at work , as almost all places have now
I like to think some Civilized people would still be wearing a SUIT when they Travel on a Plane , or Ship (check out the 70's early 80's Episodes of the Love Boat or any TV show from that Era before "Casual Friday" at work started.
But, but alas what we have Regressed to is Todays Youth literally in PAJAMAS like they are perpetual TODDLERS ..
Bring back the Old days when Men wore Suits and even a proper Hat ... I do think people would act more like Civilized Humans not the stuff we see in videos today , people getting ejected off Planes for arguing and fighting like Kids in a Schoolyard ..
Something has dramatically changed, and not for the better .. IMHO and I think how we dress has a LOT to do with it .
yes, but of course! Unshaven, wrinkled and soiled cloths, generally unkempt and uncouth. You know the type. They get the service they deserve. Nada.
One of the wealthiest men in the world with more money than a Saudi Oil sheik was flying commercial? Are you sure? Most likely a look alike.I was on a flight with Mark Zuckerberg last year and I honestly thought he has been upgraded from Economy by the way he was dressed. It was only because the crew were all over him that I asked who he was and they told me.

Maria should have asked him for some advice on finding and keeping good talent as opposed to firing staff like it was Sherman's March to the Sea!Somebody was pulling your Leg sweetie .

Amazing how well that works, isn't it? One of my flying/arrival tricks.Kinda an update
Yesterday Jet Blue to SDQ. First time for me with the no free carts. Easy peasy (3) one dollar bills.
Walked right up to desk at customs as if I didn't see all passenger were passing their bags thru the scanner. I flashed him my receipt for one bag, He said--Jet blue ? --Si. -- Go. That's all. Out of there.
