Don’t get mad… Get funny.

OMG, my heart goes out to the parents of those screaming babies. I would have clawed through the emergency exit door. As much as it sucked for the other passengers, the parents (and, well, the children)… that’s just a special ring of hell.

Dear corporations with lousy customer service,

Your Base Are All Belong to Us.

Carry on however you like, but don’t come crying to us when your colossal bad moves turn up on CNN. Go ahead, keep heckling your customers. We could all use a good laugh.

Love,

The People Formerly Known as the Audience

Thanks everyone for posting/flagging/mentioning this. Thanks in advance everyone else who will have it tomorrow. TV Journalists, even though this has not been on BoingBoing yet, your timer has already started. Oh and thanks Aunt Gertrude who will forward this to me in, say, 2-3 years?
