To be fair to United, the policy is clearly printed on their boarding passes.

He misunderstood the retarded comment, they were just trying to see if he was interested in employment at Dulles.

dlp211: It's not "a dog", it's a farking service animal. An animal that has been specifically trained to be on an airplane and not "piss right in the aisle". What the fark is wrong with you?

A 'dog' is what I have right now with my daughter's retarded pyrenees/lab crawling over the top of me and halfway onto the desk because a fly flew by, or he heard the paint on the wall, or whatever stupid thing he's come up with now.

Probably trying to figure out how to shiat on the ceiling, if I were to just completely guess about his intentions.

'It's as if she has PTSD from the situation and i cant blame her after all that we'd been through.'

Maybe he should get a service dog for his service dog then?

This is the first time I've ever seen people get trolled over how long an animal can go without taking a shiat.

Lsherm: He does seem kind of off in the video, but I'm sure my first reaction when meeting someone who might be mentally challenged has never been to ask them "Are you farking retarded?"

Well, unless you're in a politics thread

I was waiting for the train one night here in Chicago (the night that the Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup) and there was a blind man with his seeing eye dog also waiting for the train about 10 yards down the platform. As the train was pulling into the station some inebriated gentleman walking by poked the dog near its tail, causing the dog to jump and almost hit the still moving train. Laughing with his buddies, the gentleman kept walking, heading past me. I loudly said to the woman next to me, "Wrigley Field is over there!" and as I said it I quickly swung around to point to Wrigley Field and I had a very unfortunate accident. Not wanting to poke someone in the eye with my finger my arm was bent as I turned around and my elbow hit this guy right in the face, and with some force, laying him out flat on his back. I yelled a polite apology and got on the train (I did not want to miss the train). As the doors shut I saw the guy's buddies propping him up and saw that the guy's nose was bleeding profusely from his nose. I really should have stayed and given them my name and phone number and reported the accident to the police. Unfortunately I was distracted by the cute woman who I gave directions to. She had not actually asked me for directions, but she had seen the guy goose the dog and was really concerned about the accident and inquired as to whether or not I had hurt my arm. I really hope that the gentleman was alright, because violence is wrong.

Kicking service animal: Suprised.

This is why I carry a taser everywhere....

You carry a taser at an airport? You must enjoy being fisted by the TSA, then. I hear they gotta check real deep for them turrirst bombs.

Bomb Head Mohammed: cptjeff: Bomb Head Mohammed: Dont have time to read TFA. Is this another one where because some "military veteran" is involved that therefore there is an expectation that rules do not apply to him and we are to assume that everything he says is true and that we should be grateful to him for Making Us Free (tm) and Allowing Douchebags like Me To Have Free Speech (tm)?

No, this is one where an asshole employee violated the ADA, kicked a service dog, and the person dicked over happened to be a disabled vet.

So, you're going with the 'assume everything is just te way that he described it' one side of the story. Gotcha champ.

As for me, I'm having a bit of a hard time taking at face value a guy whose organization's homepage has a poster that says 'for every 5000 facebook likes we will give a service animal to a disabled soldier.'

BronyMedic: Service animals can be trained to set on the pot. We have a EMT in our ER who has a service dog who does just that because of her epilepsy.

Why not get a service dog that doesn't have epilepsy?

The slogan was "Fly the Friendly Skies with United" but it says nothing about what happens on the ground. That's where they kick your service animal, ask you if you are retarded and break your Taylor guitar.

You have to hand it to United, they screwed with a guy who turned around and wrote a successful song about how bad he was treated and now they're going after injured war veterans. Money can't buy that kind of public relations gold.

ReluctantPaladin: ElLoco: ReluctantPaladin: Luckily for you.


You seem pro. Am I doing it right?


I, sir, am a MORAN, a high functioning offset of the typical Fark moron.

Meaning I typically only do my troll baiting/engaging outside of the politics tab.

/This restriction has been instrumental in avoiding carpal-tunnel brought about by responding to shills/trolls
//If only I could have a service dog do my posting for me, that would be the life!

I never could get into the politics tab. :/

Number one... I despise politics, and two... the flame wars are waaay too predictable.

I prefer spontaneous and random shiatflinging where I never know from which direction it'll fly.

consider this: Allowing a person to take a dog or any other animal on a flight is farking stupid. I guess it's cool if they shiat and piss right in the aisle.

Did you come into this thread with the express purpose of showing FARK how much of an complete idiot you really are?

If so, bravo man. I applaud you.
