Once again, I tirade after flying.  After navigating the complexity of entering an airport, after having my ID checked twice and recorded by TSA, after having my shoes off and all metal removed and all pockets emptied, after being x-rayed and having my bags x-rayed as well (because I may be such a clever and nefarious character and may pose a threat to an aircraft), I sit in the airplane at last.

Whereupon, sneaky, dangerous person that I was only minutes ago, I am instructed in the use of a seat-belt for the ten thousandth time.

Sigh.  Just when I thought the government and the airline industry viewed me with respect, I am reminded to  ‘insert the metal tab into the buckle.’
