Speaker 1 (00:05):
I'm Honey German. My parents are Dominican. I was born
and raised in New York City. I love sneakers and
I'm a body positive advocate.

Speaker 2 (00:11):
I'm Carolina Bermudez, soy Nika a WinCE, but I was
born and raised in Ohio. I'm a wife, a mama,
and a worker.

Speaker 3 (00:19):
Bee. This is life spanglish. Honey, You're lucky.

Speaker 2 (00:23):
I'm even here right now because I've been going back
and forth New York to La And no, it's not
a flex. I'm not saying it like that. Traveling will
break you in half.

Speaker 1 (00:34):
It Listen, it is struggling in a lot of different ways.
Like even after I had my accent in Carolina, I
think about it twenty times before I travel.

Speaker 3 (00:45):
Well, you have to now, and you know what.

Speaker 2 (00:47):
The other thing too, It's like, okay, first of all,
there are so many issues that are happening with planes
and travel and people. Everybody is just ready to pop
off at any point in time. I just I look
around sometimes and I'm like, are these people losing their
damn minds?

Speaker 3 (01:04):
Like I've been spoken.

Speaker 2 (01:05):
To, like in a nasty way from like you know, no,
not for bystanders, from people who are working at the airline.

Speaker 1 (01:13):
Some of the pass.

Speaker 3 (01:15):
Yes, Like when I was actually boarding.

Speaker 2 (01:18):
You know how when your phone goes to your wallet
and then if your phone turns off, then you got
to pull up the wallet again.

Speaker 1 (01:25):
You lose your boarding pass.

Speaker 2 (01:26):
You lose your boarding pass. But I had it ready.
I'm standing in line and I had it ready. And
then I get up to the thing and this flight
she wasn't a flight attendant, but she was like a
counter attendant. I don't even know what to call them.
She was like, man, we told you to have your
boarding pass ready. And I looked at her and I
was like, my phone screen just turned off, Like like,

(01:47):
can you calm down? Everybody is just like on edge
when you're traveling, And like, I know that people have
dealt with some really crazy things. My friend was stuck
in an airport for three days trying to get to Disney.
They ended up not even getting to their location. Remember
those storms that were happening, So I get it.

Speaker 1 (02:07):
I remember that. Yeah, it can get a little crazy.
Remember the woman that threw the computer at the airline
attendant in the.

Speaker 3 (02:13):
Miami Oh wait, is that one.

Speaker 1 (02:17):
She misplaced her kids? I think yes?

Speaker 2 (02:20):
And then she like was that the one where she
went and she like threw their computer down?

Speaker 1 (02:24):
Yeah, yeah, yeah, wilding out that one lady. It's crazy.
Travel is not safe anymore.

Speaker 2 (02:32):
Travel is exhausting, It is depleting. When I tell you,
I have to mentally talk myself like off the ledge
because it is enough to make you go crazy. So
whenever I travel, like, are you the type of person
that checks in your bags? Yes, of course I'm not
about that life anymore.

Speaker 1 (02:53):
No way, Oh, he had taken everything with you on
the plane.

Speaker 3 (02:55):
Mark Rossman will not have it.

Speaker 1 (02:57):
Hold on, Hold on, Karen, vacation, you carry on. You
have to pack a carry on for a full trip.

Speaker 2 (03:03):
We are going to France, and Mark Grossman has spoken.
He said, there is no way that we are going
to check in bags. So whatever you have, it must
be repurposed. You got to find a way to stretch
it out for the eight days.

Speaker 1 (03:21):
Because you're anxiety right now.

Speaker 2 (03:25):
But I have become a master packer. So for example,
when I go to LA for these gigs like for
e I have to take extra wardrobe, I have to
take clothing.

Speaker 1 (03:35):
Yeah.

Speaker 2 (03:35):
So basically what I'm doing is I am trying to
pack the minimum to take on that plane because if
that luggage gets lost, game over. I got nothing right,
So I'm trying to pack everything on there. And then
you have people who are not as efficient at packing.

(03:58):
And you know the ones that I'm talking about, they're
the ones that are at the check and counter. They
got their luggage open, they're transferring one thing from.

Speaker 1 (04:05):
The other wise, traveling to the Dominican Republic, is that
what you've been traveling to? Because we are the most
ghetto as humans in the world when it comes to traveling.
You try to check into Dominican Republic, every single human
we're the worst. But yeah, I know exactly the type

(04:26):
of people you're talking about. That's my people.

Speaker 3 (04:29):
Gone Sorran wrap.

Speaker 1 (04:31):
Well that's after that's after we figure out the weight issue.
Then we got a suran. We don't want nobody's stealing
our stuff when it gets to the la isla.

Speaker 3 (04:40):
So no, that's what I'm saying.

Speaker 1 (04:42):
Please go back to carry on and curly. You know,
the only thing in my carry on are jewelry, sunglasses,
and electronics. Nothing else. Nothing else comes in my carry on, Babe.

Speaker 3 (04:54):
I have it down to a science.

Speaker 2 (04:57):
I have everything in a tiny portable little thing like
all of my makeup. Like when I leave in the
morning to go to the airport, I don't have to
remember like, oh I gotta take my toothbrush, or I
gotta take this, or oh I like that eye pencil.
I'm gonna make sure I bought doubles of everything, which
is an absolute luxury, and I get it.

Speaker 1 (05:19):
I have that too. I'm not gonna lie to you.
My makeup that I travel with is double of everything.
I use data because.

Speaker 2 (05:25):
I'm not trying to forget my eyelash curler. You know
what I'm saying, because I was running out early pencil.

Speaker 1 (05:31):
No, I know what you're saying.

Speaker 2 (05:32):
That that I feel like has changed my life in
so many ways because now it's just like boom, I
throw that in there.

Speaker 3 (05:39):
I know I'm covered.

Speaker 2 (05:40):
If anything needs to be replenished when I get back
from the trip, I replenish it.

Speaker 3 (05:44):
Then I don't wait.

Speaker 2 (05:45):
Until I'm leaving to do it, you know what I mean.
So like, there's a method to the madness, But when
it comes to.

Speaker 1 (05:53):
You have not told me anything about clothes and shoes
and bathing suits and hats and pocketbooks.

Speaker 2 (05:58):
Okay, so here here's what I got for you. I'm
gonna serve you. I'm gonna serve you right now. This
is this is just the appetizer.

Speaker 3 (06:06):
Okay.

Speaker 2 (06:07):
You wear your heaviest shoes on the plane, which are
probably gonna be your sneakers.

Speaker 3 (06:11):
Everybody needs sneakers.

Speaker 2 (06:13):
Wherever it is that you're going, whatever destination you're going to,
you're most likely going to need a pair of sneakers.

Speaker 3 (06:18):
Okay.

Speaker 2 (06:20):
I have one of those away bags, the away carry
on bag, so in that you have.

Speaker 1 (06:24):
The same one.

Speaker 3 (06:25):
Carolina fits nothing, okay in that one.

Speaker 2 (06:29):
So there's like a little flap that like you can
you can snap it so that it pushes the stuff
down in that little flap. I have a pair of
flip flops that live in that bag. That pair of
flip flops never leaves. That's for the shower. That's if
I decide to go to the pools. They are the
skinniest pairs of havaianas that you can find, but they're there.

Speaker 1 (06:52):
How you say that, I never knew how to say
that word.

Speaker 3 (06:54):
I think I'm saying it, Am I saying it right?
Haayanas okay, okay, So but.

Speaker 2 (07:00):
You know what I'm saying, So you think about it, honey,
do you need a pair of flip flops all the
time wherever you're going to your destination?

Speaker 1 (07:07):
Kylin, I bring wedges on trips. This should tell you
how bad of a packer I am.

Speaker 3 (07:12):
Wrong.

Speaker 2 (07:13):
Mistake, Okay, so that pair of flip flops lives in there.

Speaker 3 (07:18):
Okay, Then you gotta be strategic.

Speaker 2 (07:21):
If you're going to take shoes, I will take one
pair of flats, like one pair of like nice flat sandals,
you know what I'm talking about, Like a pair of
woven sandals, because those are those are tiny, those can
pack up flat. And then I limit myself to either
one neutral wedge or one black, because like that depends
on what you're doing. And then the key to carrying

(07:43):
on is this, everything has to follow the same color palette.

Speaker 3 (07:50):
So if I'm wearing Navies and khakis and.

Speaker 2 (07:55):
Creams and whites, then everything is going to be able
to interchange. So that one pair of jeans, it's gonna
go with that one top, or it could go with
like that little button down top. Do you see what
I'm saying? Like there has to be a method to
your madness.

Speaker 1 (08:12):
Got to sow the way Bella and I pack. We
lay out twenty outfits and then we put a hat,
and then we put a shoe, and then we put
a necklace and then we pack all us. No, that's
we're doing it all wrong.

Speaker 3 (08:25):
You're doing it all wrong.

Speaker 2 (08:26):
But also, you don't need thirty two pairs of fanthies.
You're not gonna shit yourself when you get their, Honey,
you just take yourself.

Speaker 1 (08:34):
Doesn't want no, But like, okay, my I need my
army green bra by the army green shirt.

Speaker 3 (08:42):
No, you don't, honey. What you need is a bra
that is going to be able to.

Speaker 2 (08:47):
Be worn with that army green tank top that can
also be worn with that dress that you're gonna wear,
that can roll up and it can fit nicely in
your carry on.

Speaker 3 (08:58):
Right. But see, that's why I feel like people.

Speaker 2 (09:00):
When you get to the airport and you're all frazzled
because you didn't think it through, that's when the fuse
gets lit, and that's when things start popping off.

Speaker 1 (09:09):
That's when you start getting crazy at the mouth with
the gate attendant that wants you to move out the
way with all your motita spread all over the floor.

Speaker 2 (09:16):
Got it exactly, No, So you know what I even
have it down to, like my sleep mask.

Speaker 3 (09:22):
I have to have a sleep mask. Do you have
a sleep mask?

Speaker 1 (09:24):
What is that to cover your eyes?

Speaker 2 (09:25):
Yeah, because I'm very sensitive to like the bright lights.
Like if I need to go to bed, I need
it to be dark.

Speaker 1 (09:30):
Okay, Lebron, exact way.

Speaker 2 (09:34):
Oh for real, No, I didn't know that. See it's Ohio,
that's Ohio baby.

Speaker 1 (09:38):
Yeah, what it is he has to sleep in complete darkness?

Speaker 3 (09:41):
Yeah, I have to.

Speaker 2 (09:42):
It needs to be completely dark, and it needs to
be completely quiet, so much so that I even have.

Speaker 3 (09:46):
Ear plugs which I pack on my carry on. No,
you know what it is.

Speaker 2 (09:50):
It's like you have to be so detailed and so
detail oriented. And I think that that is the reason
why if you are going to the airport and you're
already kind of like behind the eight ball, anything is
going to set you off ground.

Speaker 1 (10:05):
Dominican, I get there four hours before my flight.

Speaker 2 (10:09):
Oh you're one of those. Do you want to get there?
You like to go to the lounge, right, Do you
like to go to the lounge?

Speaker 3 (10:14):
I take pictures at the lounge.

Speaker 1 (10:15):
I go to the lounge, I take a selfie, I
get a drink.

Speaker 3 (10:19):
Because mean, most of the time I make sure.

Speaker 1 (10:22):
The gate exists, you know, Oh you do.

Speaker 2 (10:24):
The gate is there, honey. You don't need to take
a walk down there and make sure that every times,
do you really? That is every single time?

Speaker 1 (10:32):
And then when I see it and I'm like, okay,
it is here, then I go do other stuff.

Speaker 2 (10:37):
Well, when we come back from the break, I'm going
to tell you something that is it's been a game
changer for me when I travel.

Speaker 3 (10:44):
And we'll talk about it next me on.

Speaker 2 (10:50):
So honey's sitting over here not believing me that whenever
I go away that I only take a carry on back.
And by the way, Honey, I'll tell you this. You know,
I do the radio show. Whenever I go out to
LA I even pass my radio equipment in a carry
on in the carry on, so the carry on suitcase.

Speaker 3 (11:07):
And then I have one of those big like I
am ashamed you have.

Speaker 2 (11:13):
It's one of those big like it's like a bigger
zippered bag that can go like that can go with
your carry on. It's within the limits. Because of course
I'm a rule follower. I don't want to get got
I'm not the one that's trying to get embarrassed and
be you know, like you said, have unpacked my entire
bag in front of everybody, and one thing that I found, like, so,

(11:37):
this bag doesn't have that thing where you can slide
it over the handle.

Speaker 3 (11:41):
Do you know what I'm talking about?

Speaker 1 (11:42):
Okay, yeah, I know what's talking about.

Speaker 2 (11:44):
So I got this bungee thing off of Amazon because
whenever I was walking through the airport, that bag would
be like fall into the side and then oh oh man,
you know, like then you're messing up the people behind you.
Then you're causing a traffic sorry, oh my goodness.

Speaker 3 (11:58):
Oh my gosh.

Speaker 1 (11:58):
Sorry.

Speaker 2 (11:59):
Okay, Okay, So I got this like little bungee thing,
which I have to send it to you like so
that you.

Speaker 1 (12:04):
Easy it because it is the same carry on Carolina.
But I barely put anything in it.

Speaker 2 (12:10):
It is a game changer, I'm telling you. It has
changed my whole entire like outlook, I need to go
to like my orders in Amazon. So much so I
bought one for every single person in my family.

Speaker 1 (12:25):
The bungee Oh the way back, the.

Speaker 3 (12:27):
Little bungee cord. I have money be giving.

Speaker 1 (12:29):
Away, girl. Way back is bread the bungeee I mean.

Speaker 2 (12:32):
The bungee cord was ten nine nine to nine on amazon,
you know what, I might hook you up girl, Hold
on a second, let me find it for you. But anyway, no,
So it's like I think that it's so important because
you're you don't know where your gate is going to be,
You're dragging all of this stuff with you. You don't want
to be that person that has their bag falling over,

(12:54):
spilling over. You know, you can't ziper it, honey, because
you got too much stuff in there. So you want
to make sure that this bungee keeps it on there
and it keeps it tight. Hold on, I'm sending it
to you right now, and I want to see your
reaction when you see this.

Speaker 1 (13:10):
Hold on, Calyn not putting me on right now?

Speaker 2 (13:13):
I am it's this luggage strap bungeee okay, And it
just will make your life so much easier because that
way you can put like your other bags on top
of it, and then that way it's like you got everything,
it's all contained.

Speaker 3 (13:27):
You know what you're doing.

Speaker 2 (13:28):
But you know what I mean, I feel like there
is there's etiquette when you go to the airport, and
so many people don't follow this etiquette.

Speaker 3 (13:37):
And these are simple things.

Speaker 1 (13:39):
Especially in Latinos. We're not following no damn etiquette. Okay,
I'm I'm showing up with all my maletas. I'm not
I'm printing my boarding past there somebody, But it help
me if I don't know how to use this global
ententy computer thing.

Speaker 3 (13:52):
Oh my gosh, No, you are the problem. It's you.
You're the problem.

Speaker 1 (13:56):
I'm the one that be making everything everything, but like
come in all of a sudden. One day I came
and I had to take a picture and a big machine.
I'm like, what is this?

Speaker 2 (14:05):
Well, you know what, there was a flight attendant. There
was an article in the New York Times the other
day and I read it because you know, I have
been traveling more often and I am seeing a lot
of things, and you know what. The other thing that
I just want to like remind everybody there's always a camera,
no matter why.

Speaker 1 (14:20):
Mother's always watching.

Speaker 2 (14:22):
If you are nasty, if you're snappy, somebody is about
to break out their camera so that they can catch you.

Speaker 3 (14:28):
In your worst behavior.

Speaker 2 (14:30):
And it's like, you do not want to be that person.
I know I certainly don't want to be. And I'm
not innocent either, because sometimes if somebody gives me an
attitude I'll catch an attitude right back and be like, yeah, bitch,
I'm ready.

Speaker 3 (14:39):
To play today. You know what I mean? Which World Star?
Normally I am not and I do not want to
be on World Star.

Speaker 2 (14:46):
But like, so this flight attendant was talking about these
twelve etiquette rules and they seem pretty simple, but like
when you think about them, you have been in every
one of these positions a all of us anything.

Speaker 1 (15:01):
I'm like, you know you know me that well, that
I did all this shit.

Speaker 2 (15:05):
No, well, because she says, everyone has a right to recline,
but there's a polite way to do it. How many
times have you just been sitting there innocently, you got
your cranberry juice cocktail on the right, you're watching your iPad.

Speaker 3 (15:18):
All of a sudden the person in front of you
aggressively puts it back.

Speaker 2 (15:21):
I've had actually like drinks spilled all over me. Really, yes,
because people are not like courteous, like they don't ease back,
and it's it's honestly happened to me with my kids,
and I'm just like, oh now I have wet pants.
I got to take care of my kids. So she says, like,
you have a right to recline, but just like make
sure you turn around and be like oh okay, you know,
like and you do it nicely and slowly.

Speaker 1 (15:44):
Okay, next one, all right, I can do that.

Speaker 2 (15:47):
The next one is so so so basic, and and
this one is for parents. You got to clean up
after your kids. I don't care if your house looks
like a tornado ran through it, but if you know
that your child misses their mouth and their cheerios hit
the floor more than they get in their mouth.

Speaker 3 (16:06):
Do not bring cheerios on the freaking plane.

Speaker 1 (16:09):
And don't bring goldfish either. Them things is the worst
on planes.

Speaker 2 (16:13):
Well no, and that's what she's saying. She's like, look like,
we don't have vacuums, we are not cleaners. And in fact,
like because you're leaving such a mess behind that causes delays.

Speaker 3 (16:23):
I can for the next people that are coming through.

Speaker 1 (16:27):
I've walked off planes and I'm like, who's sitting here?
A family of baboons? Like what the hell is? This?

Speaker 4 (16:33):
Just disgusting for sure, And she says like, just like,
bring some supplies, bring some wet wipes, bring some you know,
She's like, make sure that you're like able to clean
up after yourself.

Speaker 2 (16:43):
She's like, because, like, that's highly inconsiderate. The next one,
I will say, I really don't do this because you know,
I got a bad back. I'm not trying to like
be rearranging anything. But the next one is really interesting
because she says the overhead bins aren't your personal Tetris game.
She said, the bins are first come, first serve in
economy class. You don't own the spot directly above your seat,

(17:05):
So it's not acceptable to touch anybody else's bag. Have
you ever had anybody touch your bag?

Speaker 1 (17:10):
But I see them moving stuff around, but I've never
been like no, you know, I see them, especially if
somebody puts it in the wrong way. I think it's
fair game to fix it, you know how it's supposed
to have. I think the wheels out if you put
it the wrong way, go ahead, touch my bag? Uh
my bag?

Speaker 2 (17:27):
Well, I had the same black bag as this woman
that was sitting directly across from me, like what are
the chances?

Speaker 3 (17:33):
And I was actually moving my bag and she was
like excuse me.

Speaker 2 (17:37):
And I looked at her and I was like what
And she's like, that's my bag. And I looked at
her and I was like, no, it's my bag and
my bag has like the statue of Liberty on it.
And she's like, oh, I'm sorry, but see right there,
people are triggered on planes. Like she couldn't just say
to me, oh, excuse me, are you like trying to
move my bag? No, she was heated. And when she

(17:57):
looked and I said, no, we have the same bag.
I said mine has the statue and she was like, oh, oh,
I'm so sorry, okay, and then she fell back, bro Right,
But I was just like, dude, first of all, I
would not touch anybody's bag, and if I did, I
would say excuse me, like is this your bag? Can
I do you mind if I rearrange it? So that's
what this woman is saying. Then she says, no one
wants to hear your FaceTime conversation, bro. That there are

(18:22):
so many people that are on FaceTime and it's on speaker,
and it's just like, can you put in your AirPods
or your headphones please?

Speaker 1 (18:32):
That brings me to something else, Carolina, what's that parents
and iPads on planes? You as a mom, what are
your thoughts on that? No headphones just kids with iPads?

Speaker 2 (18:46):
Absolutely not unacceptable And actually she says that she goes
while we're on the topic, no one wants to hear
your movies, your video games, your tiktoks, bring headphones, even
for the kids. Absolutely, Like the boys have to pack
their own back because we said, like we have to
get them used to traveling. Now, they have to pack
their own iPads, They have to make sure they have
their own chargers, they have to make sure that they

(19:07):
have their headphones.

Speaker 1 (19:08):
And if they do possible for your own stuff that
you're gonna want to be using.

Speaker 2 (19:11):
Absolutely, then if you don't, then you go without because
you got to learn, Like I'm not here to pack
up your stuff for you all the time, Like, yes,
I will help them with their clothing and theirs stuff,
but like what you're taking on the plane, No, sir,
you're responsible.

Speaker 1 (19:24):
Because I've always wondered this, Carolina. Is it rude of
me to tell a parent like, hey, you know your
kid the iPad the game it's so loud. I'm trying
to chill here, Like No, I've always wondered ken, is
that okay? Or is a parent going to go off
on me?

Speaker 3 (19:39):
No? You know what you say it to the parent.

Speaker 2 (19:41):
I think if somebody were to say to me, excuse me,
could you tell your son to turn it down? First
of all, you know that what they're doing is rude, Like,
why on earth wouldn't you say, oh my gosh, I'm
so sorry, you know, like you're so oblivious.

Speaker 1 (19:54):
But I've always wanted to ask another parent, like is
it okay for me to say, can you lower your
s house iPad?

Speaker 2 (20:02):
Well, we're going to get into the one that is
the biggest argument after this, and when I say it,
you guys are gonna understand.

Speaker 3 (20:12):
It's the age old question. Honey, who gets the armrest
if you're sitting in the middle.

Speaker 1 (20:18):
The left or the right? Which one?

Speaker 3 (20:20):
If you're sitting in the middle, who gets the arm rest?

Speaker 1 (20:24):
I want the armress on the right, because whoever's in
the aisle is going to also have an arm rest
on the right. I guess, okay, I guess whoever's in
the window can have both.

Speaker 2 (20:34):
She said, This is case closed. The middle seat gets
both armress. It's the consolation prize phrase wish between two
people with nowhere to lean because if you're if you're
in the aisle, you can lean out. If you're on
the window, you can lean into the window. If you're
in the middle. You are contained in the middle. And

(20:56):
she said, this is a flight attendant of over I
forget how many years, but you said case closed the
consolation prize for being squitched between two people with nowhere
lean that middle seat should get both armrests. So you
know that for me is a game changer because sometimes
I'm stuck in the middle because I sit in the
middle between both of my boys, and so I'm like
turning around and I say to them both like eid

(21:20):
and again.

Speaker 3 (21:22):
Like I need to stretch out too. You know that's.

Speaker 1 (21:25):
The middle too, because nooney likes the aisle seat. So
then where do I sit the middle? Oh? How I
know these arm these armrests are both mine, and try
meuse I'm gonna pull up the article or the Life
in Spanguish.

Speaker 2 (21:38):
Episode exactly, which, by the way, you have great taste
in podcasts, you know. She says, like the headphones, like
some of these all run through headphones are a perfectly accessive,
acceptable conversation ender if you got a chatty person next
to you, which to me is like the worst because
all I do is talk for a living, and if
somebody is nice, you know, I'll talk to them for
a little bit. But if they want to keep that

(21:59):
conversation going longer than twelve minutes, then then no, I'm
gonna put my I'm gonna put my headphones in.

Speaker 1 (22:06):
I've been making believe I'm sleep before the plane takes off.
Here to you, I'll be like, yeah me, No, man.
The only time I'm gonna be honest with you where
I'm cool about it is when I'm traveling to dr
and I get seated next to someone who doesn't speak English,
because oh no, that's helpful. That's the only time, because

(22:27):
creation forms, if it's that's my WITA. Until we get
outside and I see a family. That is the only
travel time where I'm willing to engage and love my
fellow passenger for sure.

Speaker 3 (22:38):
No, I'm with you on that one.

Speaker 1 (22:40):
I mean this should is over.

Speaker 3 (22:42):
No, man, that should just be.

Speaker 2 (22:43):
Like this should just be common sense. She says, keep
your socks on. It's a long flight. By all means, relax,
take off your shoes. But there is never ever a
reason to take off your socks. Foot smell is inescapable.
Keep your feet to yourself. It's not acceptable to rest
your feet on the arm. The person in front of you,
And this is the one that drives me insane, she says,

(23:05):
I highly recommend putting on your foot where when you
use the laboratory, I have to sit next to that.

Speaker 3 (23:11):
You know, that that.

Speaker 2 (23:12):
Bathroom in the middle of the plane where you know
the people in first class use it, and then the
people in economy use it too, Like it's that that extra.

Speaker 1 (23:19):
One, exactly about that nice one.

Speaker 3 (23:23):
Yeah, it's a busy one.

Speaker 2 (23:24):
And I saw this guy from first class walk back,
because I was like two rows back.

Speaker 3 (23:30):
In the aisle.

Speaker 2 (23:31):
I saw this man, I kid you not, in his
socks walking into that bathroom, which, by the way, I
went into that bathroom and somebody missed the seat.

Speaker 3 (23:44):
There was peepy all over that floor.

Speaker 2 (23:47):
And this man walked in with his nasty ass grubby socks.
And you're gonna tell me that you're gonna put those
back in to your sneakers.

Speaker 3 (23:55):
After no, sir, nahuh, not happening for me.

Speaker 1 (23:58):
Like what do you expect I find in that bathroom?
You got all these guys going in there with their
meat in the hand, this turbulence, swing to the left,
swing to the right, this piss everywhere.

Speaker 4 (24:08):
You're disgusting, sir, Oh my god, I almost just spit
out my water, she said, the meat in her hands.

Speaker 3 (24:13):
But no, you know what.

Speaker 2 (24:14):
And also, by the way, Gibbet WinCE that like he
is in first class, they give you slippers.

Speaker 3 (24:21):
Put on the slippers.

Speaker 1 (24:23):
A man don't care. He probably gonna be like, I'm
gonna throw these socks out. But that's disgusting, Caroly.

Speaker 2 (24:28):
So yeah, and I know we got to go, but
I want to run through these really quickly. She said,
use the call button wisely, like if there's an emergency,
use it. But like if we're coming down the aisle
and you want like a soda, we'll get to you,
you know. So, she says, use that wisely. This is important, honey,
because this actually goes back to what you were saying.
Don't discipline other people's kids. She says, nothing makes a

(24:51):
flight more miserable than the back of your seat being
a punching bag. However, if the child behind you is
being disruptive, address the parents.

Speaker 1 (24:58):
Wow.

Speaker 2 (24:59):
Yeah, so, she's says. Approach the parents calmly with a smile.
If they realize their child is kicking your seat, say
oh excuse me, Like, is there any way that you
can tell your son to stop.

Speaker 3 (25:11):
This way, you're not accusing, you're.

Speaker 2 (25:13):
Not being bossy, and you're asking them like can you
intervene here? And I think that that is received better
than somebody being like, can you tell your kid to stop?

Speaker 3 (25:23):
You know, I think it's all in tone, right, Carlena.

Speaker 1 (25:27):
Remember the man earlier this year that went crazy and
had like an absolute meltdown because this baby kept crying
the entire flight.

Speaker 3 (25:36):
Yes, so, oh my gosh, that was so embarrassing.

Speaker 1 (25:39):
He was he was cursing his ass off and he
was on his way to Florida from Baltimore. He was
going to have a good time. He was on his
way to a low vacation. I'm guessing this man was
not with the shits, Carolina.

Speaker 3 (25:52):
Who's not with the shits?

Speaker 2 (25:53):
But you know what, but that's so unfair, honey. I
can tell you as a person, kids are unpredictable. That
was a baby. She was trying to tell that baby
to shut out. He kept saying, can't you shut that
baby up?

Speaker 1 (26:07):
He was wild that man.

Speaker 2 (26:09):
They took cost me, yes, and they should have, because
when a baby is crying like that, I guarantee you
the mother or the father or whoever is the caretaker
of that baby is more frazzled than you will ever know. Like,
for example, Asher, Asher used to cry, and I used
to carry him in a you know, like one of

(26:30):
those like baby pouches or whatever, like on the front
of you. I used to travel by myself with Noah,
who was too an Asher in the baby pouch, right,
and I would go down to Florida to visit my
mom and dad.

Speaker 3 (26:41):
I had to get down there some way. I was
doing it.

Speaker 2 (26:44):
Asher's little ears used to pop and so he would cry,
and so I had to find ways. I would like
stand up, but if you're landing, you can't stand up.
You got to find a way to like appease your baby.
And it's like it's out of your control. You do
your best and you hope for the best. But like
people have to understand, like there is no way to
shut up a baby.

Speaker 1 (27:04):
You just got to deal with it. Bro, It's life.
It could be worse. A crying baby is not gonna
kill you.

Speaker 3 (27:08):
No, totally, And.

Speaker 1 (27:10):
Like I'm pretty sure the parents are already like why,
why God help me?

Speaker 3 (27:14):
Why they are Yeah totally.

Speaker 2 (27:17):
So that guy was just an embarrassment and you know what,
he should have gotten kicked off because there is no
excuse for that.

Speaker 3 (27:22):
And then he was cursing. And there were families, and that's.

Speaker 1 (27:24):
What I'm saying, Like you're not just having to melt them,
but you're like profanity. There's other kids, and they're like,
come on, sir, get it together, act like an adult.

Speaker 2 (27:33):
And then she goes on to say she's like, deal
with your seating is she's before you.

Speaker 3 (27:36):
Get on the plane.

Speaker 2 (27:37):
Like if you're like, honey, and you're there four hours
early and you're at gate thirty four A and you
got some time before they it exists, and you got
some time before you board, go up to them and
be like, hey, I'm with my sister Bella. She's in
row eight C and I'm in row twelve. Is there
any way that you can put us together? But if

(27:57):
you have children, you definitely Like some of the airline now,
if they're thirteen or under, they're like required to put
you guys together. Oh, this is another one. Has anybody
ever come up to you and said, hey, do you
mind if i we're traveling together? She says, you don't
have to switch seats with someone if they ask you.

Speaker 1 (28:16):
Yeah, But then it's so uncomfortable because obviously they're family
member is going to be next to you for the
next four hours.

Speaker 2 (28:21):
I know, but you know what, this is something that actually,
like I feel like people get guilted a lot. I'm
one of them. I'm a sucker, need too and I
but I will not sit in the middle seat. And
I'll say no, I'm so sorry. You know, I'm traveling
by myself. And then I put in my headphones. I'm like,
m I do not want to get into it with somebody,
but like, no, I'm not going to give you my

(28:42):
window seat because you like a window seat and you're
in the aisle, you know what I mean, Like unless
I want to take the aisle. She's saying, like, you
have the right to say no. It's an unpopular opinion,
but if you want to sit there, sit in your seat,
especially if you paid extra. Some of these airlines are crazy.
They're charging you extra just to sit an aisle.

Speaker 1 (29:01):
Yeah, there's certain like from a certain number forward, it's
more money. An aisle is more. The emergency role was more. Yeah,
have you paid more?

Speaker 2 (29:09):
Not well, and then she just ends up with saying
like flush please, like everybody is using that bathroom, like
you got a flush. But like there just there should
be rules when you get on a plane now, because
like you know, there was there was somebody that was
an influencer and this story was, you know, trending a
couple of weeks ago. I feel like somebody was shaming

(29:31):
her because she was a bit of a larger, you know,
her body. She was a larger woman, you know, and
they were shaming her and saying that, you know, she
should buy two seats and this and that, and they
were like talking about how they shouldn't have to be
squished in their seat because of her.

Speaker 3 (29:47):
Like I don't know, man, I feel like it's just
like have some grace people.

Speaker 2 (29:53):
She's already uncomfortable, Like, are you really going to be
like calling people out for something like that that's out
of their out No. I mean, I just feel like
it's gotten to a point where everybody is just wilding
out on these planes.

Speaker 1 (30:06):
I saw that story, and you know, she was just
talking about she wants planes to introduce bigger seats because
you know, America has an obesity problem. Let's call spade
a spade, and those seats other than Broadway seats. I
have never sat in anything smaller than an airplane seat,
especially if it's an older plane. And I think she

(30:28):
wants to take this to Washington and demand that you
know that, well, you actually wants to advocate, not demand,
but that you know airplanes be accessible to people of
all sizes and abilities.

Speaker 3 (30:40):
Well, you know what, then they would have to come
up with. And I agree with you.

Speaker 2 (30:44):
Listen, I'm on the smaller side and an airplane seat
is uncomfortable for me, you know what I mean. Like
if you're on a long flight and you're in an
airplane seat and you've got like your little neck pillow
and your blanket like.

Speaker 3 (30:58):
That you bring on board or whatever, it can't get uncomfortable.

Speaker 2 (31:02):
So I do realize that, like, yeah, the seating they've
they've been shrinking the seats for decades.

Speaker 3 (31:09):
So you know, maybe it.

Speaker 2 (31:10):
Is something that needs that awareness, or maybe she should
be the person to be the advocate, you know, somebody
who is living it and going through it, and maybe Jalen.

Speaker 1 (31:20):
Don't get a gastick or nothing like that. You advocate
for plus size people of America. Take it all the
way to Washington.

Speaker 2 (31:26):
We're here for it, Mamita, and we will support you
because you know what you deserve that. So you know, honey,
I'm gonna show you. I will the next time I pack,
I will show you my carry on and you will

life intoto a carry on. That's what you're gonna do.

Speaker 2 (31:53):

edit it and post it for me, because I don't
even know how.

Speaker 1 (31:56):
To do that. Listen, we got nallah on Hello.

Speaker 3 (32:01):

Who Killed JFK?

Who Killed JFK? For 60 years, we are still asking that question. In commemoration of the 60th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's tragic assassination, legendary filmmaker Rob Reiner teams up with award-winning journalist Soledad O’Brien to tell the history of America’s greatest murder mystery. They interview CIA officials, medical experts, Pulitzer-prize winning journalists, eyewitnesses and a former Secret Service agent who, in 2023, came forward with groundbreaking new evidence. They dig deep into the layers of the 60-year-old question ‘Who Killed JFK?’, how that question has shaped America, and why it matters that we’re still asking it today.
