Don’t Steal the Cheese from the Club Room
This tip goes out to the dude I watched in the American Airlines Admirals Club lounge at LAX on March 8. He thought he was slick by going up to the cheese buffet with a paper bag lined with plastic under his plate. When he thought no one was looking he would fill the bag up with cheese and put a couple pieces on his plate. Sit down, eat the cheese off his plate, then go to his luggage that he’d left in the unattended luggage room (I didn’t know people still use these). He’d drop that bag of cheese off and get another. Fortunately, the staff busted him. But come on: Don’t steal all the cheese (or anything else!) from the club room.

    Fighting windmills. I once saw a woman taking paper plates of relish and mustard from the Costco hot dog area out the exit door. No, she didn’t buy a hot dog.

    LOL so funny. Can’t believe someone would try to smuggle cheese at the Admirals Club

    ;Cheese is incredibly delicious…and if it sets on a buffet and is room temperature, it might just be the perfect food! With current milk prices (we dairy farm) it could be provided in the gate area for all airline customers! Farm milk prices are even lower than oil prices, and we all know the deals available in the airline industry because of economical fuel prices. Maybe American Airlines could pass out cheese in economy seating area. Anyway, to that guy and everyone else: have a great trip today and enjoy some local cheese, wherever you may be!
