What is wrong, however, is spending 365 days a year in a righteous little snit over the utter gall of some people to not only refuse to address one's every whim, but their failure to anticipate what whim currently occupies one's attention this afternoon.Today's idiot in a righteous little snit because they aren't getting preferential treatment comes to us from WorldNetDaily:
Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air have announced a new program that will charge heterosexuals 10 percent extra for their air travel to specific locations during the Christmas season.Can you believe that? If you don't prove to them that you're gay, they'll add 10% to your ticket price!
The company actually offers the 10 percent as a discount but only if the purchaser obtains the ticket through a "gay" page of the company's website, a location not typically patronized by families seeking travel arrangements, according to an Idaho activist who was distressed by the offering.Well, this falls under the "gum in class" rule, doesn't it? If you don't bring enough for everyone, then you can't chew your gum. Obviously companies never, ever offer discounts to particular groups.
"They are giving preferences to male passengers who want to wear dresses on the planes, and giving them preference over married couples," Fischer said, noting families typically buy more tickets than individuals or pairs traveling together.I guess I missed the part where the discount is only for cross-dressers. And families buy more tickets at one time than a person traveling alone, but that doesn't mean they buy more tickets overall.
