    The United stuff is, to me, incomprehensible. If you're an employee, part of the risk of your job is working late and being inconvenienced. If you're a company, one of your responsibilities is to solve problems without damaging your brand or hurting (in this case physically) your customers.  If United screwed something up then they should have accepted the consequences of that screw up. Those United employees should have been put up in a hotel and flown out the next morning. If doing that would have necessitated another flight in their lineup being short on skycaps (or whatever they're called), so be it; figure something out.


    To hear the CEO defend the actions of his employees is nauseating.  


    I'm reminded of a saying I once heard,


    "The character of a man is not determined by the number of mistakes he has made, rather by the actions which he has taken to correct those mistakes."

    I was really, reaaaaaally drunk when i saw Hardcore Henry. I know I enjoyed it, but I was probably sinking into my seat, mouth agape with a bit of drool, and occasionally loudly sipping a movie theatre medium sized rum and coke. Would watch again!

    Blaine,.. relax. Think about it brother,.. they are employees of a sex shop. They care more about helping you find the right toy/material, than judging your purchase.


    They stock it,.. it's on their shelves,.. nothing new under the sun for them. Hell,.. they're probably thinking about break time while you're wringing your hands.

    facebook isnt complicated at all, its just older folk dont know how it works because they didnt live with it for the majority of their lives. when you grow up with technology and social media, you are more able to grow and adapt with it. when you dont, it confuses. its like if you took someone who grew up with facebook and social media and suddenly asked them to compose a physical letter with proper layout, grammar, punctuation and to address the envelope and send it the proper way. they wouldnt have the a clue how to do it without being guided step by step through the process. maybe im just one of the rare few or maybe because i payed attention and i grew up right in the middle of physical communication changing to internet based communication. i was amazed when i had to teach my own girlfriend how to mail a letter because the irs only accepts amendments to your taxes through mail or appointment. she didn know you had to attatch postage stamps, she didnt know the layout you had to use to address a letter to the right place while also leaving a return address, i guarantee she was never taught proper letter writing had this been a case where she had to. stuff i just thought was common sense and i am a 90's kid. at the same time it just seems so second nature to use facebook and how to tag people or message them or post to their wall. its not difficult to understand. i think older folks just look at it like "well this is on a computer so it already sounds complicated" and stop trying. they pretty much just do the equivalent of flinging shit at the wall and not even paying attention long enough to see if it sticks. if it doesnt reach its intended recipient its just "oh that damn computer and young folk's technology!" frustrates me some times to see this happen because its not that hard for both sides. its just a blatant refusal to learn and retain information.

    As proud descendents of Scotland,  many of my family members, including myself, where kilts to special occasions. The proper way to wear a kilt is without underwear. Afterall, real men wear kilts because they have nothing to hide, And everything to show. ;-)

    I feel like if kilts/skirts were normal for men to wear, I'm sure I probably would. They seem really breezy and like they'd do well to cool you off on a hot day.

      Not really, kilts are made of heavy wool. Usually worn with thick wool socks too.

      Hey @Jpalivoda , I actually respect you as a human being, and I don't wanna fight ya. Lets give up on this useless cycle of comments and hatred, and start anew. Maybe one day, other commenters will see us an realize, I was just trying to start a thing with other people repeating that comment over and over, and maybe you sort of ruined that, by being the first to reply back. But that's okay, it was a dumb joke to begin with. In short, I forgive you for ruining my joke, and for you needless attacks on innocent Blaine-haters. 
      It's not your fault.

    Funny enough the CEO has since doubled down and been like "nah they were right, that passenger was the cause". Also Blaine was a bit off. The guy who was with his wife was not the doctor they beat up, it was a different guy who was picked and left with his wife.

    I think you are forgetting, that United, no matter how shitty the action was, had the legal right to remove that man from the flight. What should be on everyone's mind is how shitty the other people were to do nothing but record the interaction, no one else offered to give up their seat so this "doctor" could keep his.


    And the Leggings incident, as Burnie explained, was again totally in their court to refuse those girls entry. When you get free tickets, you do what you're fucking told or fuck off.

      I have heard Gus complain about people not following rules no matter how stupid (like Nintendo's YouTube rules) AND complain about people using the "I have a wife and kids" type of excuse before, interesting that he was against the airline on this one. Also I read that the guy was like tucking himself in his seat like a little kid which led to the security FORCIBLY removing him.
