And You Complain About Your $3 Bag of Trail Mix

These days, of course, airplane food is but a distant memory. (Though sometimes a joyful one: I recall, on a trip to California, how my parents oh-so-slyly requested the Kosher meal because they had heard, via the Jewish Conspiracy Network, that it tasted better. Instead they got stuffed cabbage. Oh, how my sister and I laughed!)
Sometimes, particularly when I have to pay $7 for a cardboard sandwich at the airport, the lack of food on airplanes irks me. But then I read things like this delightful complaint letter to Sir Richard Branson, head of Virgin Atlantic Airlines, and feel sort of grateful.
But also sort of sorry that I never wrote anything this funny when I still had the chance. Especially since Branson just offered this guy a job.
