I get upset and freaked out entirely legitimately when I have to travel by aircraft.
I’ve only been on an aircraft a handful of times.
I tried to drive whenever possible, even if it’s going to take a long time. I had to travel across the country for work Last year and it was the first time I had been on an aircraft in a few years. I took a Xanax the day before I left the house. I was feeling relaxed when I checked into the terminal. I sat outside of a coffee shop with a Danish and a hot cup of coffee. I watched all of the people that were walking by. There was a washroom across the hall from the area where I was sitting and I could see all of them and guys coming in and out. I saw a pilot walking out of the washroom and he looked legitimately strange. I didn’t see any other pilots coming out of the washroom, because the airline has a washroom for their employees. I decided to go into the washroom to see if anything was strange and that’s when I realized that the washroom smelled like marijuana. There was entirely no way for me to know whether or not the pilot was the man smoking marijuana, but I try to memorize what his uniform looked like. When I got on my own aircraft, I was blissful to see that the pilots were not wearing the same uniform. I don’t know if I would have been able to get on the plane if I thought that our pilot was stoned.
