Some passengers stuck on a delayed flight started passing angry notes back and forth to each other yesterday. Then it got violent.
It didn't go over well.
Update 12/3/13: Elan Gale admits his "Diane In 7A" story was a hoax.
Previously: We see them at every gate. Those people. The ones who've decided that they are the only passengers that matter, that everyone else on the plane must just be flying for kicks, but they actually have someplace to be. Yesterday, Elan Gale, a producer of ABC's The Bachelor, was waiting for his flight to board and he spotted one such woman. So he took to his Twitter feed to document the woman's airport insolence, and once they got in the air, he decided to respond.
It started at the gate.
Our flight is delayed. A woman on here is very upset because she has Thanksgiving plans. She is the only one obviously. Praying for her— elan gale (@theyearofelan) November 28, 2013
At this point, she's already annoying, but we all lose our senses occasionally when talking to representatives of a large, faceless corporation.
She's telling the flight attendants that it is Thanksgiving. She wants them to know she wants to have dinner with her family— elan gale (@theyearofelan) November 28, 2013
Unless you're starring in a Home Alone sequel, your case is not special.
The male flight attendant said "I understand ma'am. I'm looking forward to seeing my family too." She responded "This isn't about you"— elan gale (@theyearofelan) November 28, 2013
Oh, damn. We just departed Un-Self-Aware International on a non-stop flight to Nope, Just An A-Hole Memorial Airport.
