Passenger Offended by the Words Merry Christmas – Gets Himself Thrown Off an American Airlines Flight
Merry Christmas! Those are the two words that offended one American Airlines passenger so profusely, he got himself thrown off a New York La Guardia to Dallas Ft. Worth bound flight.
The man was attempting to depart on American Airlines Flight 1140 this past Tuesday. The pleasant gate agent wished him a Merry Christmas when she scanned his boarding pass. But that’s when the man said, “You shouldn’t say that because not everyone celebrates Christmas.”
Somewhat perplexed, the gate agent asked the would be grinch, “Well, what should I say then?” The man replied, “Don’t say, ‘Merry Christmas,” before he stormed off down the jetway to board the aircraft.
As the man boarded, one of the flight attendants greeted the man with a very pleasant Merry Christmas. That was apparently the straw that broke the camels back. The man began lecturing the flight attendants and pilots about not saying Merry Christmas.
The flight crew attempted to calm down “Scrooge,” but he insisted on continuing his rampage of lecturing the flight crew.
That didn’t work out too well for him though. The crew called on authorities to have him escorted off the flight. As he was taken away, the entire passenger cabin burst into applause and cheers.
That being said, I only have one thing to say to that jovial gentleman. “MERRY CHRISTMAS SIR!!!”
