Fox Sports contributor Clay Travis is ready to join the very exclusive club of terrible people who are very mad at Delta airlines for incredibly ridiculous reasons.
For you see, Travis -- a man so manly he literally wrote a book titled Man: The Book, a man so tough that his personal slogan is "don't be a pussy" -- was told, after it was discovered that his son had lice, that his family would not be able to board their plane until they took care of the situation. Appalled, Travis wrote a lengthy post on his blog decrying the completely reasonable policy.
When we landed in Minneapolis, the entire plane emptied and a flight attendant who looked a bit like Nurse Ratched from “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” approached us and said that we would not be allowed to take our connecting flight and would have to leave the airport in Minneapolis.
This, as you can well imagine, did not please me.
“We are not staying in Minneapolis,” I said. (At this point I also started thinking, I don’t want to turn into that Asian doctor and get dragged off an airplane by security. Especially since I defended the airline in that case with this article. I get that airline personnel have difficult jobs. But I did tell Nurse Ratched that I was a lawyer and hadn’t been able to find any policy about lice online, that we were traveling back from Europe and just wanted to get home and only had a short flight.) She was not helpful.
