I get worried and freaked out easily when I have to travel by airplane.
I’ve only been on an airplane 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 airplane in a few years. I took a Xanax in the morning 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 boiling cup of coffee. I watched all of the people that were walking by. There was a powder room across the hall from the area where I was sitting and I could see all of them and people coming in and out. I saw a pilot walking out of the powder room and he looked really strange. I didn’t see any other pilots coming out of the powder room, because the airline has a powder room for their employees. I decided to go into the powder room to see if anything was strange and that was when I realized that the powder room smelled like marijuana. There was genuinely no way for me to know whether or not the pilot was the person smoking marijuana, however I try to memorize what his uniform looked like. When I got on my own airplane, I was cheerful to see that the pilots were not wearing the same uniform. I do not know if I would have been able to get on the plane if I thought that our pilot was stoned.
