First-Class Rudeness

I enjoyed this entertaining piece by Scott Carmichael on the Gadling blog about bad behavior among passengers in first class.

He asserts that rudeness is not exclusive to the coach cabin, and that some particularly arrogant misbehavior is more prevalent up front. Chief among these is the “Do you know who I am?” syndrome, when self-important passengers try to bully flight attendants.

I just can’t hear that phrase without laughing because it reminds me of the Death Star Cafeteria routine by the comedian Eddie Izzard, who imagines Darth Vadar asking just that question as he tries to order lunch from an unimpressed guy behind the counter.

There’s a great version with Lego figures. If you can take a little salty language, watch it
