The common stereotype is the fat man in the seat next to yours. This isn’t a post about him. This is about the cute girl in the seat next to yours. It’s about sharing.
See, travel is tough. Yeah, the airlines may give us a 5” screen to watch last season’s 30 Rock episodes on and a little nozzle of “fresh” air and a reading light and a floatation device and a little glass of “free” ginger ale, but the overall experience is still unpleasant. The waiting, the expense, the delays, the fees – it sucks. So we must be prepared for the fight. We must budget for the $9 airport beer. We must pack smart and light. We must bring along a headphone splitter.
The headphone splitter allows you to share, allows you to be generous. It allows you to give entertainment to the cute girl sitting next to you. No woman has ever traveled with a headphone splitter … ever. Guys must bring them. Then we can offer our downloaded movies, our episodes of Archer, our podcasts. This just may end up being date #1.
Or it could be date #1,000, as you continue to surprise your significant other on the thoroughness of your travel prep.
