HOWARD MEGDAL: See, this would be my reaction if I were told I was being served McNuggets:
AKIE BERMISS: I love how the anchor thinks the flight attendant who got hit in the head and went crazy is CRAZIER than the woman who drives up to a McDonalds in the morning, is told that they don’t serve chicken nuggets during breakfast, and goes crazy. I know the first one is bananas, but for some reason, I feel like this woman is completely insane.
HOWARD MEGDAL: Akie- leaving from the Emergency Exit during a non-emergency doesn’t seem crazier than nearly-chicken-denial-based assault?
MOLLY SCHOEMANN: Why didn’t she just call 911?
See, the plane guy, I can kind of imagine. I mean, if my office had an emergency inflatable slide that I could activate, I would probably fantasize about using it all the time. Same with if it had a PA system and a fridge full of booze. I think he took all the tools required to make an amazingly dramatic exit from a shitty day at work and ran with it.
I also think he should be fired, but not ARRESTED. He didn’t assault anyone! Come on Jet Blue. You just got a ton of free publicity. Give the man a break. I’m sure he’s returned his tray table to an upright position by now.
AKIE BERMISS: Well the plane was grounded. And, while it was crazy, his justification was someone not listening to him and hitting him in the head with luggage. After, what may’ve been a grueling day of work and dealing with unruly passengers and so forth. He left the plane as quickly as he could. With deftness he was trained to have.
the woman at the drive-through, a) asked for chicken nuggets at 630 (is it possible this was her FIRST time to McDonalds, because I think most people know they serve breakfast), b) got so upset when she couldn’t have it that she got OUT of her car and forced the window open and started punching the drive-through attendant. I’m sorry — that’s just bonkers.
MOLLY SCHOEMANN: Possibly McDonalds’ advertising has gotten TOO effective?
AKIE BERMISS: They should really pay this woman and make this a commercial.
