I was already thinking the note passing and alcohol dropping was too childish and PA but I just stopped reading the thing after the "eat my..". He lost all my sympathy there.
Had he stuck to venting on twitter it would have been fun but not that.

Absolutely. His note-passing and name-calling was childish enough, but when he escalated further into vulgarity, I had enough of this guy and him self-congratulatory attitude. He chose insert himself into a situation which was already difficult for the flight attendants (which I'm sure they just LOVED) and created another problem where there was none. Not impressed with this arrogant guy at all.

All the rest of us have exactly the same frustration--you are not the only person for whom this is Thanksgiving, and your reaction has unfortunately made this even more stressful for the rest of us. I hope you can relax and regain some perspective. Happy Thanksgiving."

But Evan would probably not have been willing to spend any money to genuinely make people feel better--he'd only be willing to fork out dough to be entertained.

Maybe not even be chiding - perhaps if she'd gotten a note that said, "Here, I understand you're stressed out. Maybe this will help," she would have thought "Hey, someone 'gets' that I'm having a terrible time here, and has shown me a little kindness. Maybe I don't feel quite so hostile all of a sudden."

I think she was being an entitled and nasty person- the kind of person *no* one wants to deal with at work, and I would have had absolutely no problem with him addressing her in an appropriate manner. However he chose an antagonistic tone gaurunteed to make matters worse, in fact he reminds me of the sibling who knows that their older brother is on his last warning and pinches him while Mom isn't looking....

Well, he is a Bachelor producer, after all. Drama is his life.    ::)

Both of them strike me as too self involved.

He was antagonizing the woman for his own enjoyment. So who us really the more evil of the two?
