3 Things to Never Bring on an Airplane

I have Spring Break on my mind. Do us all a favor and never bring these three things on a plane.

1. Graham crackers

Is there a more fragile mass produced food? I don’t, nor does anyone else, want to see or sit in your graham cracker crumbs. Splurge and buy some more durable teddy grahams.

2. Soiled diaper

Change the little dudes diaper before you get on board. There is barely enough room in the lavatory for an adult, let alone and adult accompanying a small child. And don’t you dare lay your 2-year-old across three seats to change his poop-filled diaper as the rest of us board the plane.

3.  Flip flops

Bare toes should never be more than cross-legged height above the earth’s surface. Cover up your feet, even a pair of Doc Martin waffle stompers are better than flip flops.
