Did I stop at the airport bar first?
 
2014-01-09 03:17:52 PM
I never knew that was an option. I'll give it a go next time.
 
2014-01-09 03:22:17 PM
It's not mentioned in TFA, but I'm going to assume that's an automatic membership on the Do Not Fly list.
 
2014-01-09 03:44:40 PM
Only if you are Chris Christie.
 
2014-01-09 03:57:57 PM
Nothing new, just sit at an airport bar for an hour or two - there's always that one guy who gets overly smashed before a flight. Unfortunately I never get to see anyone freak out on an aircraft, its always a quiet ride :(

Unfortunately?  Sure, you miss out on some live, unscripted entertainment.  But who the hell wants to be delayed for some jackass?

By that airline for sure.

Hell no. Save it for the TSA goons.

The attack was broken up by two men who, after waiting to see if the combatants were hot, came to the aid of the ticket agent who ended up with bruises on her face, head, stomach and legs, Hurley said.

FTFM

Without hesitation.
 
2014-01-09 05:25:01 PM
Not sure.  I wasn't given A) or B) options.
 
2014-01-09 05:25:03 PM
I thought the standard practice was to phone in a bomb threat to the entire airport. Why should anyone else get to travel if you can't?
 
2014-01-09 05:25:11 PM
Yes I would!
 
2014-01-09 05:25:24 PM
I read the headline in the form of a question as it was intended and then before I clicked I said in reply to myself who just read the headline in the form of a question... "If you're a woman"
 
2014-01-09 05:28:15 PM
Florida; so, it must be "c"
 
2014-01-09 05:29:59 PM
The answer is always C.

Except when it's not.

Lol :D

Ticket agents are passive aggressive jerks that'll have that corporate smile on their face while telling you your flights been cancelled after being delayed 8 hours. So, I'll take c.
 
2014-01-09 05:39:06 PM
I guess if 'on general principle' isn't enough reason to smack up an airline employee, this reason works.
 
2014-01-09 05:40:22 PM
Was she flying Allegiant? If so, I completely understand.
 
2014-01-09 05:43:35 PM
Well, it was a United flight, so a part of me feels for this woman.

United is one of the few airlines that has brought me to the point of arguement with an employee. I tend to avoid conflict at all costs, but damn...United employees must receive training on flipping people's switches.
 
2014-01-09 05:48:10 PM
Really I don't know why they allow people onto plane with hands. Those things are deadly weapons.

cookiefleck: Ticket agents are passive aggressive jerks that'll have that corporate smile on their face while telling you your flights been cancelled after being delayed 8 hours. So, I'll take c.


Yeah, because the ticketing agents were the people directly in charge of deciding the plane's status and intentionally cancelled your flight just to spite you.

It honestly still perplexes me why people feel the need to act like asshole towards the guy serving you at the counter (whether it's an office, bank, restaurant, airport, etc.). They are the ones who have the least amount of control in what is happening to your service. Pretty classic "shooting the messenger" mindset. If you want to biatch at someone, you should be complaining about it to the management.

My brother flies for them so I got a kick out of that.

/I can get cheap tickets on that airline and I still won't fly on it.
//Well, doesn't help that they don't fly anywhere near where I am.
 
2014-01-09 05:52:49 PM
In before "They be like: you need pants to fly!"
 
2014-01-09 05:54:26 PM
One of the few instances when the Fark headline actually undersells the severity of what happened.
 
2014-01-09 05:56:59 PM
Go on...

Act a fool!

You'll get your MF'ing seat.

If they're United employees you do, because fark those people.
 
2014-01-09 06:06:33 PM
I'm not going to say they should have done that. But I understand

Why just before? Fighting always makes me thirsty.

Does my flight have to be canceled before I do that, or can I just do it anyway?
 
2014-01-09 06:28:58 PM
It's not her fault. That kind of violent behavior never got her in trouble at the Greyhound bus terminals, so why should the airline terminals be different?

anytime is the right time for fighting.

FTFY.

Quickest way to get an upgrade: Be the nice guy just behind the asshole. In line at a gate in Atlanta I was behind a jerk who treated the gate agent like crap. Chewed her out, shouted, made her life hell for a few minutes. I stepped up, smiled, commiserated with her. She smiled back and handed me a 1st class boarding pass.
 
2014-01-09 06:36:08 PM
Honestly i am surprised this does not happen more.

And from now on, you always travel with a loudmouth.

must stay 500 feet away from united ticket counter?

are we sure this is a punishment?
 
2014-01-09 06:39:36 PM
As a former airline employee, this behavior does not surprise me in the least

Ah ha!!!  I knew it!!!  The secret is out!!!

Pent up anger is not healthy for you. You gotta let it out.
 
2014-01-09 06:52:32 PM
13% of the population
50% of the crime

numbers don't lie

and why didn't the 2 men kick her stupid skinny ass for the ticket agent. I would have enjoyed doing that soooooooo much!

One of my favorite videos on youtube is a chinese woman freaking out about a missed plane and saying it is inhumane.

I couldn't find the one with translations but as you might expect she is overreacting to the situation.

Yep. That's worked for me more times than I can count.

Some people don't take that "buh-bye" crap too well.

I just draw pentagrams in front of gate agents I don't like.
