    Okie dokie. Am I alone in thinking making three little kids cry as they put their baby turtle in the trash might not have been the airline's best moment?

    They could have made an exception. Of course then people would bitch that they wanted an exception made for them. The girl's father should have called the airline to check about their policy on yertle the turtle and the whole trashed turtle would have been avoided. Then again, if the airline folks had just thrown a towel over the cage no one else on the plance would have been the wiser.

    I haven't flown in 23 years so color me shocked that this airline lets you bring dogs, cats and birds on airplanes and they can be in the cabin. Really?

    Yea. I dunno why, but they do. And I agree, the Dad was a jerk for not checking and for not staying in the airport till his girls' plane had left the ground.

    But I cannot get this image outta my head: airline employees telling little kids to toss the turtle in the trash and board the plane. Little kids crying.

    Truly, do people need a course in common fucking sense to say something that would have reduced the kids' misery? Mebbe "we'll hold the turtle here and call your Dad to come and get it?"

    Yup, and every few years they dig it up and re-bury it 10 feet deeper than before :razz:

    Mebbe I'm just turning into that crabby little old lady I swore as a teenager I would never become, but honest to pete, people seem to be turning their brains off a lot more lately.
