United Is In Another Shit Storm After A Flight Attendant Told A Passenger To Put Her Dog In The Overhead Bin
You may have already read the tragic story about the puppy who died a slow, dark death in an overhead bin on a United Airlines flight, and if you have, I apologize for bringing it up again and causing your heart to break and trickle down your body and out of your ass. If you haven’t read this story, then I apologize for bringing it up and causing your heart to break and trickle down your body and out of your ass. This is the kind of awful story where what should be the palate cleanser (read: a picture of an adorable puppy) is actually what’s bringing on the sadness in major doses.
During my dog’s 15 years of life, I’ve traveled with him on a plane at least a dozen times. I’ve never really had any major issues, except for my nerves splitting while subliminally saying to him, “Please don’t diarrhea in your carrier, please don’t diarrhea in your carrier…” But Catalina Robledo and her family had the worst thing happened to them when a United flight attendant told her to put their dog in an overhead bin. That overhead bin ended up becoming the dog’s coffin. I told you this story was the worst.
A Woman Claimed Spirit Airlines Suggested She Flush Her Emotional Support Hamster Down The Toilet… So She Did
Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to honor the short life of Pebbles the dwarf hamster. Pebbles was a good girl, selflessly providing emotional support, fuzzle wuzzles, boopy smooches and whisker nuzzles to her “caregiver” Belen Aldescea. Sadly, according to The Miami Herald, Pebbles’ life was cut short when she was denied entrance to a Spirit Airlines flight from Baltimore to Fort Lauderdale. Pebbles, who selflessly dedicated herself to a life of service, was unceremoniously flushed down the toilet by the very person she had sworn to protect comfort for all of her days; Belen herself.
Stars, they’re just like us! They too can arrive at the airport expecting a simple flight, only to find themselves questioning the existence of Satan while languishing for hours in a soul-rattling airline hell. That’s what recently happened to Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, except they got to suffer in First Class.
Ah, first class – where you get actual champagne instead of a $10 glass of white wine and a straw to blow bubbles into. But this isn’t about how Lena Dunham is living the life, it’s about how Lena Dunham wasn’t feeling some hateful words that allegedly came out of the mouths of two American Airlines flight attendants, and how she publicly called them out for it.
On Wednesday, 23-year-old Olympic gold medal-winning gymnast Aly Raisman tweeted about a gymnasty (sorry I couldn’t help myself) experience she recently had while going through airport security. She says it happened while interacting with a woman TSA agent and a man TSA agent. The woman recognized she was thee Aly Raisman by her buff arms. The man, however, doubted that was true. He didn’t even need any proof, like photo ID or a box of Special K; he just assessed that her arms were too small and weak to execute moves like a roundoff into a back handspring. That really pissed Aly off.
Many weird and gross things have happened on airplanes and Kumail Nanjiani (aka Dinesh from Silicon Valley) recently experienced peak-airplane awkwardness. And he later tweeted about it.
