I’ve known Adam for a couple of years. I think he’s the only attorney I know who actually litigates. Every time I see him, I tell him, “You can’t handle the truth!” and I slam whatever I have down on the ground. (Just kidding.)
Adam used to travel between Chicago and Kansas City on, like, a weekly basis for work. He always flew Southwest and realized that if he sat in row 8 or row 16, he’d be first in line to get his drink.
“I’d get on the plane and see if there were any open seats in row 8. If not . . . I cruise all the way to row 16.”
I confirmed this theory with a Southwest flight attendant and learned that eastbound planes tend to be row 9 and 17.
Good tip if you’re feeling particularly thirsty on your day of travel, right?
