Got an interesting one for y’all today.
Warning: It’s late so I’m extra biased and spicy.
Alright, idk where to start.
So I was scrolling through my avgeek news feed and I stumbled upon this. A United Airlines Passenger wearing a shirt that said, “Rope. Tree. Journalist. Some assembly required.” A passenger, who happened to be the brother of a Business Insider Journalist took this picture and considered his humorous shirt a “death threat”. Then, he complained to United CSAs (Customer Service Agents). The CSAs basically said he can wear that, you can switch flights. He said no thanks and continued on the flight. If you were legitimately concerned about a death threat, you certainly wouldn’t be on an airplane with that person. This story makes a great headline, but is a bunch of baloney.
Now onto storytime…
About a month ago, I was flying a Horizon Q400 from Seattle to Redmond. There was a man on the flight with a shirt that said, “naughty word gun control,” with two AKs replacing letters in the naughty word. Now, he got a few disgusting looks, but mostly got compliments and joked around with other passengers. Now if I really wanted to, could I have said, “I feel threatened”? Of course, but it also was a joke, showing his political view.
As always, if anyone has any questions, feel free to PM me.
