Money May Not Be Able to Buy You Love, but it Can Sure Buy Courtesy

I just got home from a whirlwind trip across the globe. On my way to the US last week, I was put in Business Class due to some issues with ticket availability. Now that is the life! It's as if you can have anything you want when you travel Business and First Class (part of the ticket was First Class). Champagne before takeoff, a fully reclining seat, and some of the best service you'll ever hope to encounter.

On the way back yesterday, now with two kids (7 and 8) in tow, it was back to Economy Class for me. And man what a difference! You'd think an adult traveling alone with two kids could get a little help, but that is simply not the case when you sit in Economy Class.

I don't know if it's true or not that money can't buy love (I don't have enough money to have even the slightest idea that it isn't true), but I do know for a fact that money can sure get you some courtesy.
