What I wish they had said a few hours ago at O'Hare...

Attention all passengers on United Airlines #317, delayed service to Des Moines:  Your flight will now board at 10:25 PM, with an expected departure of 10:50 PM.  This is one hour behind schedule.  It's a late enough flight to begin with, you should be pretty tired and ready to sleep by the time you get in your seat.  It's a light load tonight, so if you are planning to gab with the person you met in the departure lounge, please take a seat next to them and not across the aisle. That way, you won't have to shout to be heard.  It's only a 52 minute flight anyway, so wouldn't it be nicer instead if you'd STFU and nap like everyone else on the flight?  I'd bet the other passengers around you would appreciate it, especially when you are talking so loud that you can be heard through their combo of earplugs and noise-cancelling headphones.  Thank you for flying the friendly skies.
