A passenger was tossed off a plane at La Guardia Airport after flipping out because airline workers wished him a “Merry Christmas”. Yes you read that correctly. Of all the things to “flip out” about in the world, the man believed this was a good reason to do so.
He was waiting to board American Airlines Flight 1140 to Dallas. A gate agent said “Merry Christmas” while checking boarding passes.
The man yelled 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!” he shouted.
The holiday spirit didn’t stop there. Once he was on the plane, another flight attendant wished him a “Merry Christmas”. Let’s just say the man snapped at that point.
He yelled “Don’t say, Merry Christmas!” and flipped out on the attendants and pilot.
The crew tried to calm him down, but it didn’t work. He refused and was escorted off the plane.
