My partner’s parents celebrated their 50 year anniversary last weekend… My partner and I flew across the nation to be with them on their special day.
The two of us left our lake house on Wednesday in the morning and the two of us drove all the way to the airport.
It took about 2 hours and the traffic was truly heavy across town. My partner and I were honestly weary by the time the two of us finally took our seats on the plane. Both of us work all day and the two of us were ready to get some sleep for a few hours. It was going to take about 3 hours to get to our endpoint, so my partner and I actually did plan on resting on the plane. Regrettably, the indoor air quality inside the plane was awful. It was too hot, sticky, and there was a bad smell. I had the ventilation fan blowing in my direction and my partner was utilizing the air ventilation fan as well… Still, it was far too tepid and humid inside of the plane. The two of us were uncomfortable, but I could tell that other people were just as aggravated as we were. Several people were squirming in their seats and others were talking to the stewardess about the temperature control settings and air quality levels. My partner and I did not want to add to the huge amount of complaints, so the two of us made an attempt to stay calm and deal with the situation. They never managed to repair the ventilation concerns in the plane, and my partner and I were overly tepid and irritated by the time the two of us landed. The two of us went to the hotel first to take a shower, before the two of us headed over to see my partner’s parents.
