Is there a choice? No

Overheard on aeroplane flying back from Africa in the early hours of this morning, as the cattle were about to be fed:

American in cap: Is there a choice?

Hostess: No

As it happens, this wasn’t one of the world’s (or even Africa’s) worst airlines. But I did think, as I swallowed whatever it was I was given, that the little episode summed up the prevailing philosophy of our society today. Take what you’re given. Pay what you’re told. Shut up.
