Wandering down the first gate with bags in hand, I inquire a strange figure standing in front of me. In front of me was a figure of a woman who was a few inches taller, blonde hair and a what I could see, a soft outline of a helmet on her head with goggles on her head. She walked towards me and it slowly came to me who she was, Amelia Earhart.
“ Where are you heading today?” she …show more content…
The plane was packed with people on each side of us. We got settled in for take off and within 10 minutes we were in the air riding steady. Sitting behind us was four college students going to Cancun for spring break, and I could already tell there was something about them that was going to be a problem when they ask the flight attendant for some drinks. I could understand their excitement, but throwing things around and being obnoxiously loud. Then Amelia paused the scene like we were in a movie and she took me to the same plane and the same people but it seemed a little different. I saw the college students that were sitting behind us earlier. They had their mouth sewn together with thick cotton thread and a luggage tag neatly tied at the end there mouths.

“Have you got any farther than this?” I ask the man in front of me.
“I have been standing in this line for over five day!” the sinner exclaimed.
I was overwhelmed by his response and got out of line to watch and observe the line. It seemed that every time they would get through one customer they would always get two added to the line. I decided that I did not need my luggage and that it was time for me to go home, Amelia stayed at the airport do to her five o'clock flight. When leaving the airport I grab a cab outside to get home. On my long car ride home I came to the realization of all the things I had learn in those short few hours. What others should take away from my experience is that it's hard to get where you want to go when you're always looking at your phone, it is hard for others to fly when there is loud passengers on board and never be loss passengers luggage or you will have a great deal of
