Imperfect Crime Alert: Woman “Nailed” for Misbehaving on Plane

Well, it just wouldn’t be a news report if there wasn’t some disturbing story involving air rage. Happily, today’s story does not involve Alec Baldwin having “Harsh Words With Non-Friends.” No, this particular one involves the arresting of a female passenger who did the unthinkable — she decided to paint her nails on the plane. When told the polish odor was bothering other passengers, the woman went to the lavatory and finished the job, only to be greeted by angry flight attendants who arranged to have the woman arrested when the plane landed.  Personally, we don’t know what the woman was thinking. The captain never says, “You are free to move about the cabin and obtain a manicure.” We also think that if they let her off on this selfish crime, it would encourage others to paint their toenails, shave, or partake in other, inappropriate beauty activities.  “I’m sorry, Ma’am, but TSA rules do not allow Botox needles on the plane.”

What do you think? Does the punishment fit the crime?

    It’s so good to see that the TSA is spending our tax dollars, on arresting such harden criminals

    Honestly, as a parent of a child with sensory issues, I would have kicked her to the baggage hold. Okay, okay, maybe arrest was a BIT harsh, but C’MON! Airplanes are enclosed systems. Think a little before you do things!
