I can’t believe this kind of thing still happens these days!
So some brilliant man decides to joke about having a bomb in his bag when he goes to check into his flight at Anchorage International late Saturday night. Well, really his friend’s bag – but still. And he said he was “joking” and “flirting”.
Seriously, you simpleton? That’s just… Well, for lack of a better word, stupid.
What’s better, this guy’s an umpire – so you know he’s used to making quick decisions. And this one was a bad one. Seriously. What’s worse? This guy isn’t allowed to leave Alaska, because he’s a flight risk.
Okay, so that’s a little overboard. But still.
Totally reminds me of yelling at the private security firm that’s at the MCI (Kansas City) airport as I was passing through security a few years back when two of the officers, who were working the baggage x-ray machine, were “joking” about planes crashing and exploding. Seriously. Except they got to keep their jobs, whereas this dillhole in Alaska’s stuck until his hearing.
