toss ‘er back on the burning plane

August 2, 2005

NOTE: This is a woman commenting on a fiery plane crash in which EVERY SINGLE PERSON survived.I appreciate the fact that this woman was likely in shock, but she sure seems like she knows what she was saying. What an ungrateful bitch.

(from an AP story)Gwen Dunlop, a Toronto resident who was on the flight returning from vacation in France, said when the plane first touched down the passengers believed they had landed safely and clapped with relief.

“Only seconds later, it started really moving and obviously it wasn’t OK,” said Dunlop. “At some point the wing was off. The oxygen masks never came down; the plane was filling up with smoke.”<– umm… dumbass? uh, you’re on the ground. This wasn’t a pressurization issue. WHAT THE HELL do you want the masks dropping for? To get tangled up in as you exit? Next time, you can sit on the plane with your mask while the rest of the passengers survive.

She said one of the flight attendants tried to calm passengers and tell them that everything was fine.<– Sounds like a damn good flight attendant, or “hostess” as you’ll call them in a moment

“One of the hostesses said, ‘You can calm down, it’s OK,’ and yet the plane was on fire and smoke was pouring in,” Dunlop told The AP. “I don’t like to criticize, but the staff did not seem helpful or prepared.” <– yeah, they should have been freaking out — that’s how they train them right?

Dunlop, who was ushered away from journalists by airport officials, said some passengers went down emergency chutes, while others jumped out on their own.<– I picture them dragging her away to a room full of the singed flight attendants

She said the pouring rain, lightning and thunder added to the drama. “We were just thrown into the weather.”<– Sounds like they should have tossed you back on the plane.

When I’m in the need for a, ahem… “Personal Coach”, I think I’ll look elsewhere.
