“This isn’t Spirit, ma’am,” quips a Southwest Airlines employee while an entitled woman pouts then screams before stomping off claiming she was in danger. The incident was recorded at LAX and shared to TikTok and has commenters in a tizzy over her unusual behavior.
While we don’t have many details about the incident – including what may have initiated the confrontation – a woman at the Los Angeles County International Aiport (LAX) was filmed during an encounter with a fellow passenger and an employee.
The video starts with the woman seated on her suitcase and her letting everyone know that she will move forward when she’s ready to move forward. As best we can surmise, there was some room in front of her and she had not moved forward to occupy the space. In other words, she was holding up the line. We think. It seems the man behind her took umbrage with that and she took umbrage with his umbrage. Again, we think.
In the video, the woman is asked to move forward and she immediately goes from a 1 to a 10 on the irritation meter screaming, “Oh, see, no! I get the chance to do it when I want to do it!” Implying that the passenger behind her is not entitled to the space she is occupying and that she will move forward when she’s good and ready to do so.
The Southwest Airlines employee is having none of it. She replies, “Don’t ball your fists up at me, baby. You’ve got the wrong one here.”
Then, the Gate Agent chimes in with the quip of the day: “I am about to have her escorted out. I don’t know what you think this is, but it’s not Spirit.“
Ha. That’s funny. And the crowd loves it too.
The woman then claims she isn’t feeling protected and that she’s sick of it. The employee calls her out on that too reminding her that she’s not in danger. To which the woman devolves into some teary story about being assaulted. We don’t know if she was or wasn’t assaulted – just to be clear.
The video ends with her being asked to leave.
Here’s the video:
