“As if i had no choice but to move”: Woman refused to switch plane seats

Published

Modern airlines frequently try to get away with too much; after all, who is going to drive across the ocean? They overbook, charge for average-sized luggage, and try the most unusual seating arrangements.

A anxious woman searched the internet if not giving up her first-class upgrade was the right decision. Because of the travel points she had accumulated, the airline granted her a free upgrade to first class on a long flight she had booked months in advance. But just seconds into the journey, a flight attendant approached her and asked if she would mind downgrading her seat…Click Here To Continue Reading>> …Click Here To Continue Reading>>

 

Even first class flight can present its own set of issues.

A woman questioned her decision to not replace her first-class seat with a 10-year-old boy’s economy seat to accommodate a family.

Background information I (23F) had been planning a vacation to San Francisco for almost a year at this point and had purchased my tickets a year in advance.

Around about a month or two before the trip, the airline called me saying they’d like to upgrade me to first class due to my points and being a member.

I had never flown first class before so to say I was so excited was an understatement.

I made sure to do everything possible in the lounge before my flight and I was welcomed with such a comfortable setting for the 13-hour flight. READ FULL STORY HERE>>>CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE READING>>>

Around an hour into the flight, a flight attendant approaches me and asks if I’d be prepared to trade seats with a 10-year-old child in economy so he may sit with his family in first class.

According to what I was told, the two parents were both members who had obtained upgrades, unaware that their youngster could not be upgraded alongside them. So they secured first-class tickets, but he was trapped in economy.

The flight attendant began giving me some options as if I had no choice but to move and she was saying things like I’d get another free upgrade in another flight or I could get a full refund for the flight. I asked her if there was any chance I could stay in my seat because I genuinely thought I was being kicked out and she said that the two parents and I were the only upgraded passengers on the flight and there were no other first-class seats available so if there was to be any chance for the boy to sit with his family it would only make sense for him to sit in my seat.

If this had been an other situation, such as overbooking first class and the youngster had purchased a ticket, the tale would be different, but I received this upgrade because of how frequently I fly with the airline. Also, I might have considered it if the parents had purchased their tickets, but they had not. No hatred for the flight attendant; she was extremely nice and respectful throughout the incident. She accepted my decision and was really pleasant, saying that everything was OK and that they will sort it out.

Never saw the parents they were sitting far away from me. I did get shamed by an old woman in the seat next to me who told me that I made a child sit on their own for 13 hours. I get a 13-hour flight alone for a child is the scary part but I saw him walk up and down the isles like every hour to meet his parents so it wasn’t like he was alone.

So AITA, because supposedly this is what an a-hole would do?

Interesting facts of chicken egg fertility that you may not know.

Published

By

I know you may be wondering how, and here is the explanation Unlike other birds where you find partners, in chickens there is no courtship or romance. A rooster just forces himself on the hen. So what happens is when a rooster mates a hen, his injected semen is stored in numerous sperm storage tubules (SSTs) located in the area where the hen’s uterus joins the vagina. But this only happens provided the hen likes the rooster. If she doesn’t, she can squirt out the semen to avoid hatching his offspring. Therefore a hen may still proceed to lay eggs that are not fertile despite even mating with a rooster every day…Click Here To Continue Reading>> …Click Here To Continue Reading>>

Even if the hen approves the rooster, some eggs may still not be fertile:

Since the sperm is released shortly after an egg is laid, and each egg takes approximately 25 hours to develop, an egg produced on the day of mating will not be fertile.

An egg laid the next day may or may not be fertile, depending on the timing. An egg laid on the third day definitely should be fertile.

So as you can see your hen can still have the first two or three eggs that are not fertile despite the hen and a rooster having mated.

You don’t need a rooster everyday for the hen to continue laying fertile eggs:

The amount of time during which the hen will continue to lay fertile eggs depends on how much sperm fills the SSTs, which are capable of storing semen from multiple matings and multiple roosters.

Highly productive hens generally remain fertile longer than hens that lay at a slower rate. The average duration of fertility from a single mating is 10 to 14 days.
So it is possible that once your hen has mated with a rooster you can even take the rooster away and you can still have fertile eggs for the next 14 days.

For first time layers if a rooster has mated with a hen, all her eggs are not always fertile: READ FULL STORY HERE>>>CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE READING>>>

Generally speaking, a hen who has mated will be fertile between 7 and 10 days after. It takes that long for the sperm to reach the oviduct where eggs are made. So it is possible that after mating, your hen can still continue to lay eggs that are not fertile for the next 10 days. This is why it is encouraged that for hens that are laying for the first time it is better to eat the eggs for the first two or three weeks instead of attempting to hatch them.

Not all roosters have fertile sperm:

This is a sad one. Just like in humans, even in chickens we also have roosters that are infertile.
Why? Who knows. It’s maybe just something in his genes not working as it should. Again, very like the human condition. There’s not always a rhyme or reason.

NB- This article has been compiled to help people understand why at time they may hear those who provide hatchery services referring to their eggs not having been fertile. We know some have been wondering why the eggs are said not to be fertile yet they have the recommended number of hens and roosters that are also active for that matter.

While the article has been compiled from various sources that we believe to be credible, it is only for general information. For specifics relating to one’s flock we still recommend that farmers use the services of professionals.

Thank you for reading.

Boy spent 6 years digging hole after fight with parents, but ‘what he did with it caused the world to lose their breath’!

When he was 14, the boy got into a small argument with his parents after they told him that he couldn’t go into the local village wearing his tracksuit. To channel his frustrations, he stayed back at his home and began attacking the ground in the garden, using his grandfather’s pickaxe.

What he didn’t foresee was that he would continue digging the ground until he created his personal den. What began as a way to manage his anger, ended up becoming a bizarre obsession for 20-year-old Canto, reports Mirror…Click Here To Continue Reading>> …Click Here To Continue Reading>>

 

His passion project began 6 years ago, and it is now a full-blow underground structure that is comprised of a living room and bedroom!

Canto has carefully carved steps that lead to his underground masterpiece. An actor by profession, the 20-year-old shared that he doesn’t really remember what had prompted him to channel his rage by digging a hole in the property of his family home in Spain. But he recalls that the process of plowing the ground helped him keep his temper in check and wind down in the evening after school. He would blissfully work on his excavation for several days a week.

Initially, he would only use his hands to do the work, but the process sped up after his friend Andreu brought his pneumatic drill over. Now Canto was no longer alone as Andreu would help him dig the ground. The pair spent nearly 14 hours every week digging up almost 10-foot into the earth.

He didn’t really have a plan as to how his retreat was going to look like, and the layout would often be determined by the obstacles that got in the way of his project. “Sometimes I came across a big stone and it could be frustrating after hours of digging that I had done almost nothing,” shared Canto. In the beginning, Canto used to remove all the rubble and soil using his hands and bucket. However, after Andres got involved in the project, he began studying various excavation techniques and ultimately developed a pulley system to transport the rubble to the surface without exerting too much effort and time.

After reaching the desired depth, their first challenge was to ensure that the roof wouldn’t collapse. Thus, he strengthened the ceilings using arched entrances and vaulted ceilings with reinforced columns to prevent it from collapsing. The kids clearly knew what it took to go into such critical but enhanced details.

Next, they created two rooms and installed a heating system, a music system, as well as Wi-Fi, which is transmitted by his phone from the cave entrance. Moreover, the underground home is the perfect cooling retreat to escape the heat during the summer months. Now for the best part, this whole project costed him a total of just $60. “It’s great, I have everything I need. It can be tiring to work here as it is wet and there is not much air going around, but I have found my own motivation to keep on digging every day,” he shared.

Currently, an investigation is being carried out and the detectives are putting the effort to understand the earlier events that led to this drastic step and if the woman’s claims of acting in self-defence is true. A spokesperson for the regional police force said, as quoted by the Daily Mail, “A woman has been arrested for a crime of wounding following an incident around midnight at a bar.

The woman was the one who contacted police to explain what had happened,” the source went on to say. “She said she had cut off her boss’s pe-is as he tried to se-ually assault her. Her claims are being investigated and the bar owner may be arrested once the hospital say he is well enough to be questioned.” Although doctors performed an emergency operation on the man, it is unclear at the moment whether they were able to successfully reattach the organ.
