    The Uber story makes no sense. How are these whiners still alive in 2014 if they don’t lock their car doors? They would have been jacked and left for dead by 1989 around here. When you don’t take even basic responsibility for your own safety, you’ve got bigger problems than some middle-aged lady thought you were a driver…

    Where do you go to order meals in advance for Thai? I have a trip in F coming up later this year and may be interested in that.

    I’m not understand why other airlines are not rolling out the pre-order meals. AA does it so it doesn’t waste meals or hear people complain that they didn’t get their first choice.. Makes sense and a very easy way to keep people happy.

    The article on cooking food on the hotel iron is a riot. I love Extended Stay Hotels for the kitchen so I can eat what I like … room service always is too much food, unless you can share with a companion. Even with just a microwave I can do lots … if hotel rooms all had toasters I’d be in heaven.
