MSNBC reported a story earlier in the week about a guy who caused a plane to make an unscheduled landing because he’d gotten so enraged that the flight crew had to call the authorities and have him arrested upon landing.
Because he was protesting the fact that the airline (Jet Blue) only took credit cards for on-board purchases. He apparently wanted to rent or buy a set of headphones and became irate when told that he couldn’t pay by cash.
While I completely agree that this is a stupid policy, stupid beyond belief in fact, there is no way that I would ever put myself in a position to get arrested, get put on lots of ‘bad people’ lists, and waste the time of a plane full of people.
Seriously, some people need to get a grip.
I hope you’re having a better weekend than this guy probably is.
