    Enjoyable/Aggravating Travel Note of the Week - Cris Carter rocks!

    Something else from MMQB this week, concerning Cris Carter:

    Enjoyable/Aggravating Travel Note of the Week
    The military-in-first-class stories are sprouting, thankfully.

    Cris Carter, my HBO compatriot, on his Travel Story of the Year:

    "I'm flying from Atlanta to Nashville the other day for a business meeting for a security company I have. You see military people all over the airport, thousands of military people traveling. They're all in their camouflage. I get on the plane with my brother John. We're sitting in first-class. The guy across from me, I hear him talking to the flight attendant and all of a sudden he grabs his stuff and goes to the back of the plane.

    I hear him saying he's giving up his seat to someone in the military. I told my brother, 'Get up, we're going to the back.' We go to the back, sit down, give up our seats, and one by one, everyone in first-class started giving up their seats. It wasn't a big plane. Then the pilot got on and said, 'Thanks to the generosity of the patrons in first-class, some of our military personnel will be in first-class today. Glad to have you. Thanks for what you do.'

    It was an emotional moment, a small thing I would have never thought of. It was nice. How easy you can make someone's holiday trip home a little more pleasant.'

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    If Ultra was there he would have asked to sit on his lap instead.

    That was actually one of the coolest things I have read in quite a while.

    Yeah, Ultra would have gotten a rise out of that..

    Seriously though, that was a very nice gesture on the part of all those people in first class.. We need more people like that in the world we live in today..
