I was Just Thinkin' - Flying by Weight?

I was Just Thinkin'

Really people? I just saw that one or another of the Airlines are considering a plan to charge people who fly by their personal weight.

Jeez! There were people tweeting messages on whether this should be done or not with all kinds of rediculous comments.

I, personally, was too busy laughing at this probe by an industry into the American psyche on a profit idea someone had..

Business' release these little "rumors" in an effort to gauge whether they can find a way to make more money, not to save anyone money.

All of you Skinny people.
Do you really think that you are going to get a break on your airline ticket because you skipped a few meals, or are a practicing bolemic, or whatever it is that makes you small and/or skinny?

No, my skeletal friend. You will save nothing, I am afraid.

What I, or anyone else would do if we ran such a business, would be to keep regular (now to be called skinny tickets) at the regular price and charge the people who are over some arbitrary weight limit, an extra fee, for their "fat tickets", just like they did with the baggage hustle they implemented not long ago.

Listen carefully!  They are in the business of making money, not giving money away!

Nuff Said!
