Remember this about the airline employees..
Most have to work on the holidays when you are off and they are busier then ever. Not fun.
Many work nights and weekends while you relax and play not fun...
They have to put up with idiots and smile while they are berated for things outside their control and often being done to insure the safety and well being of the fool bitchin because his/her flight was delayed for 1 hour due to a tornado on the runway.
Hey when I travel on the holidays my fiance bakes cookies and we give them to the gate agents and crews. It is a thankless job and these folks put out every day to get you there. They deserve a site to poke fun at morons.
Remember them the next time you travel...
PS at my home airport I buy them 1/5ths for my fav airline employees during the holidays. (It also helps insure the upgrades and preferential treatment
