Fact: It is not good idea to ask for a plastic bag to put your backpack in so the straps don't get broken because you borrowed the backpack and don't want to return it busted.
Result: The air pacific lady will sternly tell you to go stand in the corner, and then yell at you for doing it wrong, and then demand that you poke a hole in it so the baggage claim sticker is out, sort of negating the purpose of said bag.
Also, my mom called and told me
1. To not make bryant cry like I made thom cry in ireland
2. that i am the devil
Sidenote: thom didn't actually cry as much as give the conley clan the silent treatment for two days.
