When I was married to my first husband, the song "Put Me In Coach" was popular. It's a baseball song, a player pleading with his coach to be put into the game. At this time, I was also traveling very frequently, and had a lot of airline miles under my belt.
When I first heard it, I listened with half an ear, then when they got to the refrain, asked "Why would anyone ask to be put in coach? Why wouldn't they keep their upgrade seat in first?" He almost drove off the road - down by Candlestick Park, IIRC - laughing at me.
