“I am no longer allowed to fly on Southwest Airlines.”
“Because I’m more intelligent than the entire airline industry. That’s why. It is a vast conspiracy El Guapo, and I finally had it.”
But why aren’t you allowed to fly on Southwest?
“I told you hombre! It is because the world airline industry refuses to accept that I am more intelligent than them. They have tried to hide behind their little rules for too long and I am standing up for passengers everywhere.”
What in the name of Santa Guadalupe are you going on about? You’re making no sense. You and your little conspiracy theories Miguel. Vamos. What happened?
“I’ll tell you what happened. I stood up to THE MAN and he didn’t like it. He pushed and I pushed back. But like an armadillo pushed up against a cement corner, he attacked me.”
How do you know so much about armadillos?
“I just do. I like them.”
Ok, whatever. Just tell me what happened?
“Do you know how they always tell you to turn off your cell phone when you’re in the plane?”
Si, of course. It affects the airplane’s equipment?
“Of course you would say that El Guapo. When are you going to take the cotton out of your eyes and realize that this is one of their tricks? Do you really expect me to believe that a cell phone is going to affect the sophisticated equipment of an airplane? Of course not! I have NEVER turned off my cell phone on a plane. Not once! And has the plane crashed? No. Does the plane ever have any problems? No.”
Maybe one phone isn’t going to do anything, but if everyone had it on then it could mess with the systems.
“I will light a candle tonight for you El Guapo. You have become so sweet and innocent in your un-single life. Que paso with you? The airlines have gotten together with the governments of the world to forbid the use of phones on planes so that they make you use their online phones. If you did a little research, you will find that the FCC is trying to SELL the ability to offer cell phone services on the plane. If they are going to sell this, why is it illegal now El Guapo? Why? I will tell you why, it is because we are all lemmings who jump when the government says jump. Not me El Guapo. Not me.”
So you didn’t turn off your phone?
“No, the stewardess noticed my phone plinking in my pocket and spoke loudly in my ear. I tried to start a revolution on the plane and was asked to be quiet by the stewardess with sideburns. I asked for everyone on the plane to turn on their cell phones, but the stewardess with the sideburns was very strong El Guapo. Very strong.”
So what happened?
“When we arrived in
You are like a Latino Gandhi. I will join this revolution with you Miguel. I just can’t wait until I have to overhear phone conversations on the plane. It will so bueno…
