So I’m listening to the radio last night on the way home and caught a snippet of a story about an American Airline (I think) flight that was delayed or had to land in a huff due to the smell of burning matches. Matches were banned after 9.11, but apparently safety matches have been put back on the “OK” list. All right.
I can’t seem to find the story online today, but as I remember it, they had to land the plane and search everyone. Turns out a woman had pulled out her safety matches and lit one in an effort “to conceal a body odor.” They confiscated her matches and removed her from the flight. Once everyone else was searched, they were allowed back on the plane and the flight resumed, minus matchlady.
Wait a minute… WHAT?!?! To conceal body odor??? The woman farted on the plane and decided, lucidly, she would do like she does at home/work/McDonald’s/church and light a match??? How stupid can you be?!? Someone should pummel her unconcious with a pinetree air freshener!
