Coffee, Tea or Leave


Yesterday, I asked...

"A first-class passenger on a Delta Airlines flight from New York to Guyana got so angry when he saw economy passengers deplaning before him he did what?"

20% said "Punched a flight attendant"
- There are lesser reasons to punch a flight attendant.

No one said "Threatened to blow up the plane" or "Locked himself in the bathroom"
- Both so passe.

80% got it right with "Yanked open an emergency hatch"

According to The Associated Press, Guyanese authorities say a first-class airline passenger was so angry at seeing economy passengers leave a jetliner before him that he yanked open an emergency hatch and slid down the chute.

Police spokesman Sealall Persaud says the Guyanese man identified as Satyanand Christopher appeared to be intoxicated after the Delta Air Lines flight from New York.

Pretty soon all these drunk jerks in the sky are going to ruin it for everyone else. They'll take away our booze privileges. We already can't carry on liquids. It will get to the point where we'll have to arrive at the airport drunk, which is just going to slow down going through security.
I said "Frisk me, dammit!"

Give me that wand, I'll show you how to look for weapons.

Yeah, I'm BOMBED. So, what, officer! ...Ow, not the face.
