Crime, God, and Phone: THIS LOUD RICH MAN IN BUSINESS CLASS SHOUTED& SWORE AT THE FLIGHT ATTENDANT. WHAT THE PILOT DID NEXT LEFT HIM DUMBSTRUCK. Two years ago my mom was on a plane that hac just boarded and was sitting on the tarmac about to pull away from the gate. Sitting next to my mom was a typical business guy douche who was on a phone call yelling at someone on the other nd. A very nice flight attended comes over ans over my mom and says "Sir, you're going to have to turn the phone off, the cabin doors are closed" (Of course if this was economy class she would have been more forceful, but she gives him a small warning) The guy quiets down but he does not get off his phone. At this point the flight attendants are doing the safety protocol speech as the plane backs up and all of the sudden the guy starts yelling again on the phone. Another flight attendent, this time more forceful tells him to turn off the phone. The man turns to her and says "F**k you." She gives this 'humph' face and the turns and goes out of sight It is at this point of the story that my mom reminds everyone listening that many pilots are veterans, they are military men and do not take that type of crap from idiots. My mom hears a door slam open and out of the cockpit comes thee pilot. He is so angry you can see the veins on his face. His eyes bulge as he yells in rage, "WHAT DID YOU SAY TO HER?!!? This is my aircraft and in case of an emergency l expect every passenger to follow the commands of my air staff. You disrespecting her, disrespects me and puts every person on this plane at risk! The douche now being borne down upon by thi massive angry ex-soldier cowers, puts away his phone and stammers an apology. Without missing a beat the pilot continues "You can take your sorry and shove it! You are not going anywhere! It is a federal crime to disobey an order from your air crew and you can tell whoever was so gawd-damn important on the other end of the phone call that fact after you talk to TSA." The pilot goes back into the cockpit, pulls the plane back to the gate. Some uniformed police come in and take the guy o Dead silence on the plane. As my mom always closes the story, "As god is my witness, everyone in unison takes out their phone, waves it in the air and shows that it is clearly in the off position,' just like the "tickets" scene from Indiana Jones. <p>This Loud Rich Man In Business Class Shouted &amp; Swore At The Flight Attendant.
