You board your plane.
You squeeze past 2 crying babies, 3 angry business men and 1 rotund man covered in bright orange chip crumbs.
The last thing you need is to have to HOLD your phone while catching up on Season 49 of Friends (What? Why Friends?)
What's this!? You have your plane ticket still snuggly nestled in the back pocket of your skinny Levi's. There's hope!
Hi friends... we've all been in this predicament, and it's not an enviable one.
I present to you 5 easy steps for turning your completely useless sheet of paper (wait, mine said "1 complimentary beverage"! I didn't see that! Damn) into a priceless movie theater which your friends and that crumby guy will drool over!
Step 1: Step 1: That's the Ticket!
Fold the ticket in half.
Step 2: Step 2: Do It Again
Fold once again, but this time leave about 3/4" hanging off of the closed end.
Step 3: Step 3: Push in the Sides
Push in both sides evenly. The amount will depend on your airline and how wasteful they are with paper (I'm looking at you Delta).
Step 4: Step 4: a Fine Seat for Your Phone's Arse
Bend the extra 3/4" piece up and crease it.
Step 5: Step 5: Two Dainty Feet for a Dainty Paper Lady
Fold the two corners of that 3/4"(ish) flap down.
(Note: these corners stick well and hold onto blankets, sweaters, napkins and flesh well. Plan accordingly).
Step 6: Done. Now Go Fly Somewhere!
I mean it, get out of here!
(I can't stay mad at you, come here)
I noticed later that there are lots of these out there. Here's one:
It's nicer too, so I'd follow theirs if you have the paper for it.
