Some Things You Just Don’t Do

As reported by Fox News Insider on December 9, “A 90-year-old survivor of the attack on Pearl Harbor was bumped from a flight to Hawaii where he was headed to be part of an annual remembrance ceremony.”

United Airlines issued this statement:

“Severe weather in the path of United flight 1226 required the flight to carry additional fuel and reduce the number of passengers on board by 41.”

I’m sorry, but there are some things you just don’t do:

  1. Spit into the wind
  2.  Leave Reese’s Peanut Butter cups inside the tent in bear country
  3. Sign up for Obamacare
  4. Pour Gorilla glue into “Steel Neil’s” football cleats the night of the big homecoming game (trust me on this one)
  5.  Bump a 90 year-old Pearl Harbor vet off a flight to Hawaii in December!

Kudos to United for re-booking Mr. Walt Shatz onto an American Airlines flight some six hours later.  But here’s my question: There wasn’t ONE single passenger on the original United flight manifest willing to give up his/her seat for a Pearl Harbor vet en route to an annual remembrance ceremony in Hawaii?  What’s with that?
