A Christmas story with a happy ending. You've got to love this.
A passenger was tossed off a plane at La Guardia Airport on Tuesday after flipping out — because airline workers wished him a merry Christmas.Hmmm. I wonder why this guy was flying alone? A personable guy like him?'
The man was waiting to board American Airlines Flight 1140 to Dallas when a cheerful gate agent began welcoming everyone with the Yuletide greeting while checking boarding passes.
The grumpy passenger, who appeared to be traveling alone, barked at the woman, “You shouldn’t say that because not everyone celebrates Christmas.”
The agent replied, “Well, what should I say then?”
“Don’t say, ‘Merry Christmas!’ ” the man shouted before brushing past her.
Once on the plane, he was warmly greeted by a flight attendant who also wished him a “merry Christmas.” That was the last straw.
“Don’t say, ‘Merry Christmas!’ ” the man raged before lecturing the attendants and the pilot about their faux pas.
The crew tried to calm the unidentified man, but he refused to back down and continued hectoring them.
He was escorted off the plane as other fliers burst into cheers and applause.
But the best part is the end when the other folks on the plane cheered when the nutjob got bounced. So enjoy the point and laugh but when you're done please consider saying a prayer for the miserable fellow because you know he's just absolutely miserable. Dude can not be happy. At all. Pray that a little peace enters his life and maybe just a glimmer of light will entice him towards finding happiness. True happiness. Maybe.
