Of Frightened Congress-Zombies and Airline Gate Agents

In the last week, we have been regaled with accounts of how frightened Congress-critters were when 70 or so protesters accessed the Capitol Building. To listen to these Representatives one would think that they experienced something akin to what the Germans experienced when the Soviets finally invaded and took over the Reichstag on 02 May 1945.

Naturally, I don’t believe a word that these Congress-Zombies utter. I am confident that all of this vaporing is intended as an attempt to create a groundswell of anger from dumbass Americans that such a thing could happen in our “vaunted temple of Democracy.” By my lights, I could only wish the Capitol Building “invasion” had been as dangerous as these Congress-Zombies go on and on about. Maybe such an encounter might have increased their character quotient. As it stands now they remain the sniveling cowardly manipulative political apparatchik that they were before the “assault” commenced.

I am here to tell you that my almost 15 years of working the gate for overbooked and canceled flights for a major airline found me in more danger of bodily harm on countless numbers of working shifts than these pussy Congress-zombies ever experienced on 06 January 2021 when the Capitol building was stormed.

More than once I had an irate customer grab my necktie to get my attention. (Which explains why as a Customer Service Representative I always wore clip-on ties.) Multiple were the times I had people with fascinating shades of purple faces filled with anger and screaming at me about my parental heritage as 18 inches from my face. I once had a customer, so angry, he put his briefcase through a window shattering it. He was only 25 feet or so from where the Jet was already spinning up its engines to taxi out in order to make his flight. (We actually put him on the flight.) Once (true story) I was able to tell George Takei who was taking time to yell at me (he of the original Star Trek fame) that “if you don’t hurry up Sulu you aren’t going to make this flight and there is no beaming up with this aircraft.” More than once I’ve been surrounded by passengers demanding strenuously that I do something about their flight’s cancellation. (“Sure lady… I’ll get my handy dandy Mechanic toolbox I keep under the podium at the Gate and get right on it.”) I can’t tell you how many times I wrote out my name on a piece of paper to give to an irate customer who was promising me that he was going to have my job. (“Why you would ever want my job is mystifying to me but you go ahead and have at it and try.”) I’ve seen customers whip credit cards at very pregnant Customer Service Reps I was working next to because the customer was angry that they couldn’t check 10 pieces of luggage without a charge. I’ve seen customers throwing tools from their toolboxes at Customer Service Agents because; “I’m sure you purposely dented my toolbox on the flight.” You want to be in danger of bodily harm? Spend over a decade working the Gate for a major airline. These Congress-Zombies going on shows like “60 Minutes” to testify how frightened for their safety they were on that fateful 06 January 2021 need to work with John Q. Public while working for a major airline and get some perspective.

Of course, as I said above, those Congress-Zombies were never really in danger. These testimonies are all about manipulating people’s emotions. Congress-Zombies live as among the pampered set. They think that danger is when they can’t get their hair done because of shut-downs they engineered. They think danger is running short of gourmet ice cream in their $10,000 Refrigerator-Freezers. They think danger is not being able to get an appointment for their next breast augmentation. They are absolutely clueless about what it means to be in danger. The complaining of ‘being in danger’ on 06 January 2021 is just another version of Hillary Clinton’s testimony that she once came under sniper fire. It’s all bull fecal matter. Every word that comes out of these people’s mouths is bull fecal matter.

And our danger is in believing a word that comes out of the frontal orifice of these Congress-Zombies.
