I was on the early (really early) flight from Toronto to Newark this morning. When we landed, the standard, please make sure you take all your personal belongings with you, commentary was blurted out to everybody.
A kid (6-8) stuffs a half eaten apple into the seat pocket in a seat a few rows in front of me. Some guys yells at mom about the kid taking it off the plane. Mom says it's trash and not a personal belonging.
Maybe if we changed the announcement "to take all yer crap off the plane" might help.
Probably not.... http://ricksegal.typepad.com
