Delta’s Diet Coke Napkins!

Hello all and welcome to a NEW Daily Blog series from me… TFG1Mike! The idea here is for me to write something, anything, once a day for 365 days. From January 1, 2019 to December 31, 2019. In my 38th entry, I’ll be talking about the creepy Delta Airlines Diet Coke napkins!
Seriously what the hell was Delta thinking? What the hell was the Coca Cola company thinking? This to me is a hard copy version of Tinder, or whatever dating app has you swipe. When I have ever flown on an airplane in the past, I only pay attention to the flight attendant’s instructions, and then I put my headphones on and sleep. I do not want to interact with any of the other passengers. my wife and I have taken several trips in the last year and a half… We both tried our best to sleep on the plane. I can’t imagine what single people think of this… I mean you might as well dress up every passenger in a wolf costume. Even the actual words on the napkin are creepy!
“Because you’re on a plane with interesting people, and hey… you never know.” It also says, “Be a little old school write down your number, and give it to your plane crush. You never know…” That’s freakin’ creepy as hell. First off how many people actually get a crush on anyone else on the same plane? I mean as a kid I had crushes on all the female attendants, but as an adult I just wanna get from point A to point B. I might say hello to any passengers that pass me, but I doubt it. Most of the interactions I have are… excuse me, oh sorry… get outta my way. That last one only if I’m trying to get off the plane, and very rarely. If there are kids flying on a Delta flight, and they see this… what will they ask their parents? The new-current Diet Coke slogan is “Because I Can”, well that’s just jim dandy and all, yet I’m curious as to what Diet Coke is saying here. Because I can do anything, because I’ll do whatever I want? hmmmm….? Strange times we are living in.
I’ve been a Diet Coke drinker since the late 80s, and even though I drink caffeine free now, I still like the soda. However I’m not sure if I can or should support them with this new direction of marketing.
