As many of you know I have some “interesting” travel shirts. My goal when traveling is to just make people smile, assuming they’re not utterly rude to me. Up until now I haven’t actually worn the shirt below while traveling, although I’ve found myself wearing it more and more when I’m at home and running errands. Other than the one guy at the supermarket that asked what I was referring to and then pointed out he was a Global Service (yeah, it stings!), no one seems to have caught on.
Anyway, I can’t quite decide whether or not I’d want to wear this while flying. I have no problem making a fool of myself, although I’m a bit scared people would take it the wrong way. Let’s be honest, 1K status doesn’t mean a whole lot anymore, so I’d be wearing it to poke fun at myself and also to poke fun at those that think their status makes them God.
So would other passengers that know what 1K is find this funny? What about flight attendants, gate agents, and pilots? Would they realize I’m kidding, or would they seriously think I’m that much of a jerk? And most importantly, what would the
holier-than-thou Global Services members think? 😉
If a majority of you think it would be taken in good fun I’ll be taking it for a 4,000+ mile test drive on Friday.
