Another day, another airline.
Jensen’s also decided that bitching to airlines on Twitter is a good look and he’s…upset that he didn’t get an upgrade…
@JensenAckles: @AlaskaAir with years of loyalty and full status, how do I lose my position on the upgrade list. #NotImpressed
What does full status even mean? Is this some kind of frequent flyer lingo or does he mean that he’s full status? Like him being a fading TV star means that he’s somebody? Ew. And isn’t the point of an upgrade list that if there’s enough seats available, you’re bumped up? Even if it isn’t, I can understand Jensen’s plight. Flying with lowly little people who can’t defend themselves must be hard, hard work….if you’re an asshole.
Not to be outdone, Jared the resident Airline Harassment Association member decided to wade in and piggyback the tweet. Considering that Jared has a million blockhead followers, I imagine it was RT’d and depending on what client you use replying to the original tweeter can be kind of a nightmare. Or it could be that airlines now know that they must bow down and kiss the ground when it comes to Jared Rapunzelecki. Anyway, they replied to Jared by mistake and this upset Jensen further. Alaska Air were still digging!!
@JensenAckles: Hey @AlaskaAir maybe if I follow u, that’ll help to stop the hole ur digging for urself. @jarpad doesn’t have the issue, I do. #clueless
Firstly, while I’m happy that Jensen can just about string a sentence together…I don’t think not being bumped up to first class is an issue. A minor hindrance maybe. Secondly, who are Jared and Jensen to be rude for no good reason? If they weren’t probably being paid peanuts, I would be praying for the day that one of the tweeters snaps and cusses them (Jared especially) the fuck out. I also didn’t realise that fighting for flight upgrades was part of the FIGHTING FOR THE LITTLE PEOPLE!!
More like fighting for the ego.
I think complaining on Twitter is one of those things that irritates me the most. You see people tweeting essays and shit, like their issue will magically be resolved within 140 characters and it is so annoying. 99% of the time, the person tweeting has a set of standard questions and responses to give you before they direct you to someone else. That’s their job! That certain people use their D-List celebrity status as an excuse to demean people who are simply doing their jobs is beyond ridiculous. We get it. You have money. You think you mean something. Hire your own damn plane in that case and kindly shut the fuck up.
