1. The Couple Who Should’ve Flown
This couple will feed the stereotype of the old, nagging wife and henpecked husband with such fervor that you’ll feel as if they’re prepping for roles in a new spinoff series of Everybody Loves Raymond. When they realize four hours into the 18-hour ride that they could have already taken a shower and a nap had they flown, the squabbling commences. For the rest of the trip, you’ll be reminded by Marianne just how stupid Frank is.
“I don’t want to sit by the window, Frank. It’s too cold. Don’t be stupid.” Or “I can’t eat peanuts. They’re too salty, Frank. Get me something else.” She’ll even throw in a few renditions of “I hate this stupid train.”
She’ll scoff in the direction of your seat when you pull out a bottle of Seagram’s from your bag.
“Oh, it’s just some whiskey, Marianne.”
“You don’t know that, Frank. It may be dangerous. Don’t be a fool.”
