Tune in here for this edition of Crossing the Streams as we’re joined by Good Morning BT’s Beth Troutman on The Brett Winterble Show!

Brett gets the conversation with Beth started by talking about how frequently they fly on airplanes before diving into an article questioning why “gate lice,” starting lining up to board a plane before gate attendants tell them to do so.

Brett and Beth share their experiences with these “gate lice,” + what drives the actions of these people: conformity or competition. Beth also explains how these people disrupt and confuse others who are trying to follow the directions of the airlines + how she thinks the airlines themselves have to bear some of the blame for these people.

Brett also dives into the reasons he’s moved away from checking any luggage on planes if he can avoid it + they both talk about the ways that they do try to make travelling less stressful on themselves.
