TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .
An unidentified passenger on a plane, who threatened to have the Mafia bring down the plane because flight attendants locked her cat in the bathroom.
The woman took her cat on a flight from Las Vegas to Germany, but she didn’t have it in a pet carrier.
So the flight attendants locked it in a bathroom.
According to another passenger, “She said that she was part of the Mafia and [they] follow her around the world, and that she was able to bring the plane down if she couldn’t see her cat.”
So the plane was diverted to Denver.
For some reason, she’s not facing any charges.
AND THEN THERE’S …..
A flight attendant who caused an unscheduled landing after she opened a bottle of champagne in flight.
The cork from the bottle hit the ceiling of the cabin, deploying all the oxygen masks and causing panic.
Shocked vacationers on their way to a Turkish resort were then told by the pilot that the plane had to divert to Milan in order to repair the damage.
The incident forced a seven-hour delay.
OR HOW ABOUT …..
Cherish Peterson, a 27-year-old Arizona mother-of-four, who was charged with child endangerment after she forgot her baby in a grocery cart and drove off without him.
Peterson said she was rushing around buying candy for her nephew’s birthday party and didn’t realize her mistake until she got home and her three-year-old asked where her baby brother was.
She drove back to the store around 40 minutes later to get the baby.
Police have lodged a misdemeanor charge of child endangerment.
OKAY, ONE MORE …..
Zach Farnam, a sheriff’s deputy in Colorado, who left a voicemail for a reporter, then accidentally kept the message going while he talked with his coworkers about how she has big boobs, but isn’t attractive.
The reporter forwarded the voicemail to her city editor and called the conversation “sickening,” pointing out that all three officers were on duty at the time.
The reporter says she received a call from Sheriff Sean Smith, who said he was taking the incident “very seriously” and who told her the conversation was certainly “unprofessional.”
