Safeco Field and Qwest Field
Originally uploaded by angrydicemoose

I’ve finally (for myself) took some time off at work to take a trip to the west coast to go to Safeco and AT+T and to of course visit friends and family. Seattle is beautiful as usual, but I really was not looking forward to the flight over.

The aisle seat was close to the back of the plane, which mean the bathroom was close so standing up to get some walking and stretching in would not be a problem. Seated at the back right of the plane was a young Japanese girl and an elder American guy. They were having a conversation in English and because they were seated pretty close I heard about half the conversation. It seemed the guy was kinda of weird and overly friendly, but I didn’t think much of it. Especially since she was drinking the drinks he was giving her (in hindsight I realize she was worried about being impolite and didn’t know how to say no).

That is until, I saw that the girl was trying to get him off of her and he was trying to smooch her. She got out of the seat somehow and I told the FA that there was something weird going on in that seat. The FA had already noticed and had already prepared for the girl (who I later found out was under age) to move up to the front of the plane without returning to her seat. They asked for my personal info for their report. How swiftly they moved on this after they saw something happening (and without causing a fuss) and the thank you speech I got from them makes me wonder what kind of incidents they see on the plane.

近非常に気にし始めた、「大丈夫」の使い方。使い方によっては「あなたこそ大丈夫?」って言われることに。最近はとりあえず「大丈夫」以外の言葉を使うようにしている。

久しぶりの長期有給でアメリカに来ています。飛行機が嫌いだけど、今回はそんなのを忘れるようなフライト。後ろの方に座っていたけど、さらに後ろの席でアメリカのおじさんが日本人の女性と異様に仲良くしている。きもいおじさんだなと思っていたけど、会話も続いていたから特に気にしていなかった。トイレに行く時にパッと目に入っていたのが、いやがっている彼女の腕を握っていてキスをしようとするおじさん。フライトアテンダントに伝えて彼女も席替え出来るように。その状況から逃げた彼女に思わずかけた最初の一言、「大丈夫?」。駄目だ、まだまだ未熟だ。。。
