I spend an hour a week in therapy. When I’m not working through current traumas, like that woman who gave me the stink-eye at the grocery store, I am stuck firmly in the past. Yes, I lived through many scarring childhood experiences from which I thought I’d never recover. There was the time in 9th grade when this jerk in Earth Sciences put tape in my hair. And every single time my mother shouted “Leave the door open!” after me when I went to hang out in my bedroom with a boy. 

But for you, dear Frisky readers, I have decided to enact a spiritual sage-burning of the blogger variety and admit there are some things I just need to get over. What follows are the scarring childhood experiences that I, along with the rest of the Frisky staff, are finally ready to put past us… Keep reading »

Southwest Airlines passenger Jeanie Daniels is butthurt because she was jailed for 10 hours after arguing with a flight attendant about painting her nails onboard. While flying from California to Texas, Daniels whipped out her nail polish and began giving herself a manicure until a flight attendant came by to tell her other passengers were complaining of the smell. Daniels stopped her manicure, but 20 minutes later she went into the airplane’s bathroom to finish the job. The angry flight attendant confronted her as soon as Daniels opened the bathroom door, which prompted a heated argument.

“She was getting so loud, while I was sitting in my seat, and I was just like, ‘Will you stop!’” Daniels told TV station KTRK. “And I was loud when I said, ‘Stop bitching at me,’ because she wouldn’t end the conversation.” But Southwest Airlines had the last laugh: when the plane landed, Daniels was arrested for “abusive profane language” and thrown into jail for 10 hours. (A judge later dismissed the charge.)
