New airline rules - so what happens next?

Not a Marketing Me, but a marketing exercise for others.

What happens to the proprietors of the convenience shops at the airport? Who is going to buy all those Cokes, Evians and Rockstars?

Sure, some people purchase and drink in the terminal, but what about the segment which was used to bringing their own on board?

I fly a lot. I (used) to always carry two bottles of water on board (I can't stand getting bottled water over ice, defeats the purpose). Now I have to wait until I am on the plane and take what they are serving?

With all the cutbacks on airlines, which airline will start charging for bottled water and increase the profit margin per seat?

Before, we still got to bring our shoes on board. What next? Fly naked? Or in airline issued coveralls? Luggage delivered by FedEx from the airport?

Extreme Me Marketing

You can "sell" yourself; your talents, skills and knowledge, etc. But "rent yourself"?
Maybe this guy is on to something?

I came across your blog and read through it what a load of krap. just another blog promoting the slave culture of the corporaite world with the false silver linin of success. Puh-leez!

I work in and office. I put in EXACTLY 40 hours a week. Our forefathers fought for equal pay for an equal day's work. If MY supervisor wants me to work ONE MINUTE extra, they had better be ready with time and a half overtime pay.want me to wear an pager or cell phone? better be ready with that EXTRA PAY for EXTRA WORK bossman!

When I leave the office I LEAVE WORK! You want me to even THINK about work? Cha-ching! Open up that cash register!

You are fooling yourself thinking this stuff works. Good luck sucker!

First off, I never encourage anyone to work uncompensated. That's stupid. Check my past posts.

Our mission at Marketing Me is for anyone who works or wants to work, paid or volunteer, public or private sector, to a)be the best they can be at whatever they choose to do and b)constantly network and stay in contact with their network for the best new opportunities.

If you are happy in your office job, then keep up the good work and enjoy life. However, be aware, be constantly aware of whether or not you are truly happy where you are, whether the powers that be are truly happy with you and whether or not you are truly where you want to be.

Otherwise, good luck and keep sending in those emails.

P.S. I have to check my history of the American Revolution about that equal pay thing; I thought it was about freedom and liberty. Oh well.
