yeah....my bullsh*t meter is through the roof on this one. nobody who values their animal, *especially* one defined as 'emotional support animal,' would f*cking flush, or otherwise kill their pet.

This chick is either a lying psycho or this story is completely totally outrage-fetish porn

That's when you go, "OK, will the plane still be here in five minutes?"

Then you go hide the godverdamnt hamster in your bag and just carry it on. It's a hamster, not a great dane.

If the hamster was that important to her,  she would have smuggled it in her ass on to the plane.

"To be clear, at no point did any of our agents suggest this guest (or any other for that matter) should flush or otherwise injure an animal," spokesman Derek Dombrowski said.

How do you know?

Agent: You could flush the hamster down the toilet.

Customer: The agent suggested I flush my hamster down the toilet!

Derek "Domass" Dombrowski: Hey, agent, did you suggest flushing the hamster?

Agent: No sir, Mr. Doma... Mr. Dombrowski, sir!

Domass: No employee would ever lie to prevent being called out on something that could cost them their job. Therefore I know the truth and can speak in absolutes.

If it was my hamster, and I really cared for it, I'd make a hamster pod and shove it in my ass, next to my watch collection.

At first I was like "How damaged do you have to be to require an emotional support hamster?" Then I was like "Apparently damaged enough to think flushing said emotional support hamster down a toilet is a logical move."

Thus the story is internally consistent.

What I find interesting about this story is that the woman obviously is the one who sought press coverage, giving an extensive interview and looking for sympathy, yet it has backfired on her magnificently. So, basically, she could have just kept this incident to herself. Now her name has been immortalised as the hamster flusher for all time.

Yeah, the optics here are pretty terrible... I mean, if she's willing to kill her beloved pet hamster because someone suggested it to her... an idea horrifying to anyone who's ever owned a pet and one I, personally, would never consider acting on (I'd skip the flight, the trauma such an act would inflict upon me would torment me for the rest of my life).... would you consider dating her or letting her have your children?
 
2018-02-08 06:36:48 PM

Well, dating maybe. Sounds like she'd be up for anything with just a mild suggestion. But have a kid? No, I'd probably be using a 2-ply condom just to be safe.

As I read this article I started to think that she's not fit to be on her own. Maybe she needs a guardian or a caretaker.

That would be a firm no.

Everyone did stupid shiat in college, granted, but blabbing about something this gruesome to the press in the internet era is just monumentally bad judgment. I think her next move should be a legal name change.

The choice between missing my flight and killing my pet is easy.

A rental car is cheaper, more comfortable, and could make the trip in under a day with better food options.

She saved maybe 14 hours time and will be forever be known as a hamster killer to anyone who googles her name.

/I'm sure of it.  I hate her.

Apparently she tried to rent a car but presumably because she's under 25 she couldn't.

Panicked and needing to return home promptly to deal with a medical issue, Aldecosea unsuccessfully tried renting a car and agonized for hours before doing the unthinkable.

My money is on "panic attack" for the medical issue.

Just IMHO, if you are so broken you need a emotional support hamster, maybe you should stay home with the doors locked and your Xanax delivered to your door.  Don't come out and expose everyone else to the stupid you have.

Never fark with a hippo. They don't look dangerous but they can outrun you, they can bite you in half with a single chomp and bullets bounce right off their hides.
