While sitting in the C16 Red Carpet Club at ORD today, a lady sat down at the table next to me. She turned her chair a bit so that it was facing me, although I didn’t think much of it. I went about my business as usual, and as I get up to leave, she says “that’s an interesting shirt.” Again I didn’t think a whole lot of it, since I was approached an hour earlier by a guy in the Red Carpet Club that said how awesome my shirt is, and he said he knew all about it since his wife was a flight attendant. I figured maybe this lady’s husband worked for United, based on how she phrased it.
We got to talking, and as it turns out she works in management at United. We had a perfectly civilized conversation about the pros and cons of United’s upper management for about 45 minutes. I won’t get into too many details here, but it was interesting to be “approached” by management in the Red Carpet Club about my favorite shirt.
