You’ve heard about racial profiling, but how about pants profiling?
Oh, you hadn’t heard of it? That’s okay, neither had I … until I found myself nodding and chuckling as I read the list of what to expect from other passengers on a flight — based on the type of pants they were wearing!
Wool Suit Pants: Will board before you.
Wool Hunting Pants: Will board after you.
Pleated Dockers: Will loudly talk on cell phone about ROIs and vertical markets.
Pajama Bottoms: Will be flying either to or from a city with a Señor Frog’s.
Sweatpants with Dallas Mavericks Logo: Will clog one or more bathrooms.
Stained Yoga Pants: Will be carrying a screaming child.
Stained Gymboree Pants: Will be a screaming child.
Leather Pants: Did not pay for own flight.
Pants with Underwear Sticking Out: Did not pay for own flight.
The list, created by Wendi Aarons is pretty much spot on and profiling at its best! I’d like to see a list that profiles people based on their carry-ons, next. Can you think of any types of pants that she might have missed, and what type passenger their wearer might be? Do tell! =)
