Flying High?

Real Estate Agent with Jameson Sotheby's International Realty

So... this is the button and icon that I found whilst using the micro-bathroom on the airplane.

The airplane's bathroom, as I'm sure y'all know, is barely big enough to turn around... (reminiscent of an old W.C.Fields line) has a button that on it's face, seems to able to call for drink service.

Really.... drink service?  That's the last place I want a flight attendant to bring me a drink.  While sitting on the mini-toilet.

Now I'm sure, some of you are preparing to tell me that's clearly not a button for drink-service, and I'm sure you're right.  But geeze-Louise... the icon designer for this one should be fired!  (or at the very least forced to bring me a drink... ) Gin and tonic, please.

Sittin' pretty (and NO... I'm not posting this whilst in the loo!). Welcome aboard!

Are the heads gender specific now? You'll need a cocktail if that's the case.

I'd be willing to be the company NAR hired to do the commercials is the same company that designed that drink call sign

Good evening Alan May,

OMG..this is hilarious! Kathleen Daniels is right I'll also bet the company NAR hired to do the commercials is this same company who designed that drink call sign!

Morning Alan.

Being cramped up in that small place would call for an adult beverage.  Just straight Jack Daniels for me, no ice and no soda.

I'm sitting here chuckling, while visions of room service happening while I'm in the airplane bathroom!  Actually, there is more room in there, than there is in your seat!

I've only flown a few times, but I've never been in an airplane bathroom and frankly I don't plan to start.  But I am going to ask my flight attendant friend what the heck the button is for.

Do they have a pass through door for that drink service or do you have to open the door and bare all?
