I am a massive fan of Curb Your Enthusiasm. While some may find him irritating, I can’t help but think that Larry David’s experiences in hotels, restaurants and on aeroplanes beautifully capture some of the anxieties and inconsistencies we endure as customers of travel.
If, like me, you think Larry David hits the nail on the head, take a look at some of my favourite LD clips here:
Larry David on tipping a bellboy
Does a thorough tour of the room really deserve a $20 tip or is it an unnecessary waste of time?
Larry David on sticking to your cabin
The unwritten rules around sticking solely to toilet usage in your own cabin.
Larry David on how the chosen attire of other passengers can affect the in flight experience
How the hairy legs of the guy next to you can be a rather unpleasant distraction on board!
Larry David on sample abusers
How far is too far when it comes to ice cream samples?
