True story. A couple who can’t seem to wear their masks correctly pitch a royal fit about another passenger not wearing his mask. Calamity ensues. The woman, at one point, pulls her male companion’s mask off his face, grabs his face and says “look at me right now!”
In one of the stranger travel freakouts we’ve seen, a couple engages in a mid-boarding fracas with another man over mask-wearing. However, they can’t seem to wear their mask correctly and basically act like little children and pitch a fit. At one point, the woman pulls down her husband’s mask (which he wasn’t wearing properly to begin with), grabs his face and demands that he look at her in an attempt to get him under control.
However, in the middle of that effort, someone else in the plane (unseen on camera) lobs a comment which doesn’t sit with her and she gets even further riled up.
There are threats of violence, child like behavior, crying, swearing, etc, etc, etc. Truly idiotic. At one point, a man who appears to be a veteran, stands up and attempts to keep the peace (kudos to him). The video ends with a whimper (thankfully) although we do not see what happens to the couple or other male passenger.
This kind of nonsense is exactly why we published our piece, entitled “Dear Flight Attendants, on behalf of America, we are sorry. You. Deserve. Better.”
Here’s the video, but readers are warned there is significant swearing.
Again, can we just all stop with this nonsense???
