I enjoy writing trips reports (and am working on the report from my trip to Asia last month) and work hard to include a dose of humor here and there in my writings. Humor is difficult for me, though. Not only am I serious guy, but I find failed attempts at humor worse than having tried at all. Consequently, you won’t see a lot of humor in my writing.
Thankfully, others fill the void. If you’ve got 20 minutes, pull up a chair, sit back, and enjoy one of the most humorous trip reports (click here) I have ever read, courtesy of eightblack on Flyertalk. UPGRD competes with Flyertalk so I try to avoid directing people back to the site, but this story was just too good not to mention.
