We don’t usually cover news here, but this story is just too crazy to pass up! Yesterday was the 10th Anniversary of a terrible day in our nation’s history, and as such the nation was on high alert all day just in case. However, most people would say this may have been taking the precautions just a bit too far…
Two airline flights were escorted to the ground yesterday because couples quote, “locked themselves in the bathroom for an extraordinarily long amount of time.” Yes, you heard right. They actually scrambled fighter jets and escorted two entire airline flights full of passengers to the ground in what they considered to be a life and death emergency – couples “making out” in the bathroom.
Here’s the official video coverage of the story:
Now, we’ve got to admit—it’s pretty stupid to choose the anniversary of 9/11 as your day to mess around and do something stupid on an airplane. So perhaps these couples deserved the unnecessary humiliation and fifteen minutes of very awkward fame they received upon landing and being questioned by some very serious authorities.
One thing is for sure. They learned their lessons, and probably won’t be attempting this mile high feat again any time soon!
