    For every legitimate and borderline service animal case there are 100 complete garbage ESA from people trying to avoid pet fees.  Ultimately it will hurt the people who really need these service animals.

      my estimate is that your ratio is off by an order of magnitude.

        you are quite possibly right and I would not argue with 2 orders of magnitude.

          I work with a part time nurse, full time flight attendant. She calls BS on just about all of them. “Unless you’re blind, you don’t need an animal on the plane.”

            my college physics 1 prof made us guess things to orders of magnitude on quizes.

            e.g. to OOM how many people are in English-speaking countries?

            to OOM how many people play college basketball every year.

            kind of a fun game.

              The ESA designation in and of itself is the problem.
              A service support animal CAN actually provide needed services, emotional or physical. Protection, assistance, and actual actions that the owner and the public might not even recognize. Allows a service that permits life to go on . To be honest, dogs can assist with many things besides sight. I will leave it to the medical profession and trainers. But, ESA is not the same. No self trained “pet” can provide a service, just looks at one with the message, WTF where’s my treat?
