$150 to not go to Detroit?

A bargain at twice the price!
 
2010-02-26 11:25:59 AM
I thought when people said they were dieing to get out of Detroit it was just an expression.

TSA made him take his shoes off before loading him up on the gurney.

Well, if his body lay by the gate long enough, they would have eventually shipped him to Atlanta. That's where pretty much everything else that gets near a Delta flight ends up, whether it wants to be there or not.

I think it was a $150 fee for dying while waiting to get OUT of Detroit.

I feel safer that this terrorist was dealt with harshly.

What miserable way to go. Especially if traveling alone.

He's in baggage claim, going round and round.

The sad thing is that I can believe the airlines would do something like that. Maybe even go after the estate.

Jeez, I hope they actually didn't use more than one. More isn't better here.

They linked the AM news station - short and to the point

Oh, you weren't talking about blow. Silly me.

Yes but this is the bargain. If he was from Detroit he would have to pay the extra fee for taking up three seats. Yes he was probably fat. Most people in Detroit are very much this.
 
2010-02-26 12:26:25 PM
He probably won't pay. Deadbeat....
 
2010-02-26 12:26:30 PM
I know why that's funny. That's funny because airlines charge you for doing stuff.

Given the stress level of travelers, I am surprised this doesnt happen more often.

Terminal "C" in Detroit? Probably keeled over after walking through the "Space Odyssey" between Terminal "A" and "B/C".

Quick, stuff him in the overhead compartment before rigor mortis sets in.

I died in an airport last week, I didn't get any news coverage.

Does it help that I feel, dead on the inside, when I go to an airport?

Well, I'm hoping they didn't let just anyone have a whack at the guy with the defibrillators.

"We're sorry to inform you that your flight will be delayed, but while you're waiting, feel free to fire up the defibrillators and take a few shots at the guy who's slumped over in his chair over to your left, while you're waiting."

In today's litigation-happy society, it's refreshing to see one's fellow man still trying to help.

Will he now be charged a luggage fee, since he's become luggage?

I somehow saw a pregnant belly disintegrating instead of the intended picture of a river. This makes me uncomfortable

meow, that might be the funniest bit of convolutedness you've ever written.

Yeah, that's cool if you're fully awake, but when you're tired and trying to catch a flight it's trippy, and not in a good way.

But you can never leave!

At least they didn't lose the body.

If you think that's bad, they also lost his luggage.

Despite the humor (I chuckled), the defibrillators can be used by most 5-year olds. Do what the picture shows then press the colored lights. They are kind of cool in a nerdy, life safety way.

The automated ones they deploy in places like airports and shopping malls could be operated by just about anybody with an IQ of over 80. I've taught Jr High age kids to use older models that were more complex than the ones they have now.

/Seriously, it has pictures on the pads showing where they go and two buttons. On, and shock. If shock isn't blinking, it won't.
