Drinkers with a Running Problem

The airport (Read 461 times)

    Bad experience at the airport. Had the idea to drink 1 beer, and one shot of tequilia ( since it's less liquidy) Well, got to talking to a few people, one who was on my flight, and ended up drinking 2 additional beers. Woops. Needless to say, the last 40 minutes of my 1:10:00 flight to Detroit was sheer misery. I was dying. I know better. NEVER drink beer before flying. Duh!

      What was the issue -- not feeling well or needing to go to the bathroom? Hammered is my favorite way to fly.

      On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office.  But you will wish that you'd spent more time running.  Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.

          The bathroom. I swear, I have not had to go that bed in a long time. As soon as it touched down, I hoped out and climbed over people to get to the head. Left my purse at my seat, did not care about anything but the bathroom.

            Stick to hard liquor for flying. Beers causes too much pain.

              Oh yes, Tequilia is my usual. Only time I drink it. And I also love flying hammered Big grin Makes everything so much prettier !

                I've always said being a pilot would be a great job if you could drink beer while you're doing it... Wink TC

                  Note to self, and others who !beer up! before flights....avoid Ryanair flights. http://blog.wired.com/cars/2009/02/insert-catchy-r.html Probably a good idea to avoid Ryanair any way, but it is hard to pass up the $40 flight from Ireland to London they have at times, and other crazy fairs -- just remember to carry nothing, touch nothing and cut back on liquids ahead of time.

                    Wait, I'm confused, no potty on the plane? You need a "Stadium Gal"!! http://www.biorelief.com/stadium-gal.html

                      I'm not sure what my reaction would be if someone in the seat next to me on a flight whipped out a 'Stadium Gal'. But, I'd be impressed with her spunk. I like spunk.

                        I think the whole point of that (along with the male Stadium Pal), is that you don't have to whip anything out. MTA: I'm reminded of this old thread. http://www.runningahead.com/groups/DWARP/Forum/cf5ccd4b7c014c11a106b8ac247e7d46 I've always been intrigued with the idea of pairing up a beer belly flask with the Stadium Pal.

                          Not sure if it's just a dc thing, but you can't get up the last half hour of the flight at all.. Is it like that everywhere now?

                            I haven't run into that, usually it's more like the last 5 min. Confused

                              That's a National Airport (DCA) specific thing.

                                I had a flight last year where the pilot had to stop the plane on the taxiway because someone went into the bathroom on the way to the gate. They said that they were not allowed to cross the runways with someone in the bathroom. I think we sat there a good 5-10 minutes before moving again.
