I come across a lot of interesting photos of in my daily internet perusal of everything travel-related — mountaintop views, urban skylines, pretty sunsets, etc. But this photo of a Ziploc bag caught my eye more than any other travel photo I’ve seen lately:
According to Redditer gigantomachy, “Brilliant and thoughtful parents handed these out to everyone on my flight.” Of course, this photo could have been faked to get a response out of people like me, but I’m just going to pretend that it’s the real deal. That being said, I have a lot of questions for the parents who dispensed these goodie bags:
- How much did this cost you, exactly? I’m sure you can buy Jolly Ranchers in bulk at a dollar store, but TCHO chocolates seem pretty nice.
- Do you have some sort of phobia of being glared at?
- Did you not include the earplugs in the bag so that people would have to come up to you and thank you for the gift if they needed them?
- You couldn’t have bought some one-shots of Jack Daniels at the duty free and popped them in there?
The baby-hating part of me thinks that this was probably a ploy for proud new parents to get strangers to compliment them on their children, but I suppose if I had been on that plane I would have liked having some hard candy to bite on if an infant started screaming. But seriously — no alcohol?
