DALLAS, TX – In comments overhead at an airport bar, two men wearing MAGA hats were heard opining about how the recent spate of travel delays has given them hope: they can continue to treat airline industry staff like crap.


With the removal of face mask mandates cabin crews around the world shared a collective sigh of relief. After years of outright abuse by nasty anti-maskers and people who really shouldn’t be allowed to drive, let alone fly, flight attendants were simply done. In an instant, the abuse, hate, discontent and ugliness – all hallmarks of the anti-masker brigade – were over.

However, their joy was shortlived, when after realizing that people actually still want to travel and that their employer – the airlines – hadn’t hired anywhere close to enough staff to deal with the deluge of revenge travelers – the ugliness returned. Now, unmasked travelers once again are raging at travel industry employees including flight attendants, and gate agents and shuttle drivers.

At the Dallas Fort Worth Airport, two men wearing MAGA hats were overheard discussing the travel delays. One remarked, “Honestly, the travel delay sucks, but I was kind of missing all the yelling and nastiness I used to direct towards airline staff. Now I have a new reason to live!”

“Yeah, for sure, man. Screw those losers,” remarked his compatriot while wiping nacho cheese off his beard. “With all these delays I am free to be myself again. I might even stop going to my anti-masker support group meetings if this keeps up.”

  1. Lee – you forgot to mention that those two mean were also white…(purposely not capitalizing)….
    And let me tell you another “story” (completely made up of course) – two women (whose thoughts and ideas make them “on the right side of history”) were enjoying caviar and vintage champagne onboard the private jet and were observing huge lines of folks trying to board the plane. One remarked – “Those poor people. Why would not they fly private, just like us?….” Here you go.
