You know what’s even more uncomfortable than sitting in an imperfect chair for a couple of hours (or — gasp — standing for two entire hours! Poor thing) while an absolutely amazing technology takes you further in a single day than most of your ancestors — even those who actually practiced the fine art of walking places on their own two feet — ever got to go?
Traveling prior to aviation. Having a job. Dealing with the public. Doing any of the stuff you already admitted you’re too privileged to do, unless I’ve misinterpreted quite how hard your husband works. But jeez, that uncomfortable first-class seat! Not quite the legroom I expected. Better complain. Jesus… Americans are such babies these days, it’s embarrassing.
