It’s alllll about that law and order...well....up until it comes to the part where you need to wear a mask. A . MASK. 😷 It’s the least you can do to be nice to your fellow humans. 🥰Remember the shoe bomber dude and how we all had to start removing our shoes in security...and we all lived...and it didn’t kill anyone to adapt? Yeah, that. 🤷🏼‍♀ï¸ÂAnyway - enjoy the drive, ma’am! 😘🚙ðŸ™ÂÂŒ🏼 (NOTE: If there is a medical reason for not wearing a mask you produce the paperwork from your physician at the gate, which doesn’t seem to be the issue here.) P.S. Because I know it will be every other comment — I have no clue how she got all those bags of bullshit on the plane! 😂âÂÂœˆï¸ÂðŸ™ðŸ¼ • • • #passengershaming #instagramaviation #comeflywithme #airlinelife #airplaneetiquette #frequentflyer #crewlife #plane #aviation #cabincrew #avgeek #cabincrewlife #flightattendant #flightattendantlife #stewardess #flightattendantproblems #travel #flightattendants #instapassport #aviationgeek #FAlife #airtravel #travelgram #traveltips #pilotlife #frequentflier #covid19 #coronavirus #mask #wearamask
