This poor Redditor is having a tough time in an airplane bathroom since the loo paper is padlocked the wrong way. Perhaps there is a meaning behind the backward toilet paper, though. It would make sense to put one toilet roll the normal way and the second roll the opposite way so as not to have both rolls come undone when the toilet paper user wants to dispense a little bit of one of the roll’s sheets.
That is if you really want to get technical about things. Perhaps they could have tried the other roll, and then, just maybe, they would have seen that the other roll was on the normal way. Better luck next time!
It's common to see people placing their food trays in the aisle like this passenger did. We get it. You don't want to sit with the tray after you're done eating, but sometimes, a little patience goes a long way. These peeps don't realize that this will give everyone around them a massive pain in the backside, especially the cabin crew. The aisles of an airplane's cabin are designed to perfectly fit the food trolleys in with a couple of inches to spare.
This person obviously does not realize what a mission it's going to be for the cabin crew when they do come past to collect everyone's trays and trash with their trolleys. Whoever is reading this, be less like this person and keep your food tray with you until the attendants come around to collect it. Then, maybe the world could be a much better place.
Disco In the Plane?
No, this is not a disco in the plane, but actually, different lights are used in an airplane to indicate different signals to the cabin crew. Managing many passengers on a plane can certainly not be easy for air hostesses. These diligent little workers have to know everything there is to know about safety aboard a plane.
To make things easier for them, they have their own secret language and signals that are sometimes communicated through the lights inside an aircraft. Apparently, there are different meanings behind the blue and orange lights, which sometimes indicate where passengers are or if passengers have pressed the assistance button. Seems nifty!
Complaining about receiving ice instead of water on an airplane is such a first-world problem, to complain about! Be glad that you have access to water at all and that you are privileged enough to be able to take a flight, sweety! Laughs aside, when planes reach extremely high heights and, therefore, pressures, then things start to freeze that would not normally freeze.
Of course, there are measures to ensure that not every compartment in the plane experiences too much pressure, but perhaps the water compartment in this plane was forgotten. Also, airlines often freeze their water reserves to keep other beverages cool, knowing that the ice will eventually defrost and turn to water. If this happens to you, and you can't drink ice, because let's be honest, who can? Then you'll have to just wait it out until it turns to water.
Ginger Notes On the Plane
We can think of a lot of weird things to gnaw on during a flight other than ginger. This person has obviously never tried durian or been around someone who's been eating durian. This Southeast Asian fruit is actually banned on several airlines and other forms of public transport due to its distinct pong, which has been described as a combination of sulfur, sewage, and rotting onions.
At least ginger has energizing, warm, and spicy notes to it, so really, it's not the worst smell to stink up a plane if one compares it to some of the other rancid-smelling foods out there.
