Girls Disrupt Flight, Assume It’s Because They Look So Good

26 Feb

“… they were just discriminating against us because we were young, decent looking girls. I mean, no one else really on the plane looked like us, except us.” – Sarah Williams, victim of her own beauty.

See the CNN report here.  I don’t know what’s worse, CNN carrying this story, or me carrying this story.

    D’oh. I didn’t think anything could be worse than the Ms. South Carolina fiasco (see: Miss Teen USA 2007). I guess Albert Einstein was correct in his thinking, “Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not sure about the former.”

    ouch! I’m just bummed you beat me to it. That is enough fodder to keep late night shows going for the next year.

    Though perhaps they can get a hair-product commercial deal out of it…”Don’t hate me because I’m pretty” 🙂

    I have to say, neither girl is all that pretty. I mean, they might turn my head on the street (until they opened their mouths and it was obvious what spoiled brats they are), but there’s nothing spectacular about them. I don’t doubt there were prettier girls on the plane, who were quiet and polite and not making a scene.

    I’m willing to bet she expected to get special treatment precisely because she thinks she’s so hot. And when she didn’t get it, it hurt her feelings, and she felt the need to go “look at me!! publically acknowledge that I’m pretty! please??”

    I bet she asked for the water at the worst possible time, and in a tone that suggested the flight attendants were there to cater to her every whim. She probably could have gotten it if she’d been polite and waited until the attendant wasn’t busy.

    @LM – I agree that there are many possible explanations for why the attendants were not immediately responsive. In fact, there are possible explanations that still leave the airline guilty of ‘poor customer service’. The explanation that these passengers jumped too seems like a bizarre choice, and I’m guessing the only reason this made it to the front page of CNN was because it was a good follow-up to the September story about the college student who wasn’t allowed on a Southwest flight for wearing clothes that were deemed inappropriate.
