I’m pretty sure that a couple of friends of mine just sent me one of the funniest stories ever related to air travel.
I logged into Facebook and saw an alert from my friend Nat. Her husband Rich, (one of my oldest friends since we’re like 5 or 6 years old) wanted to share an article with me.
So what could it be?
The article was from Vice.com about a story that I had heard about but for some reason or another I had not really read into. Maybe it sounded too nasty. (Probably not considering I went out of my way to visit The Shit Fountain in Chicago.)
The title of the article alone will probably make most of you laugh.
Someone On a British Airways Plane Took a Shit So Bad That It Had to Turn Around and Come Back Again
Yes, you read that correctly. Someone’s poop caused a flight to turn back…
A British Airways flight flying from London to Dubai had to turn back 30 minutes into the flight. It was turned around due to (according to Vice) “a quite pungent smell coming from one of the toilets“.
There were more details about the cause of the smell- “liquid fecal excrement“. Disgusting!
The flight was rescheduled for the following day and everyone on the flight was provided with a hotel for the night. (Hopefully the flight-delaying pooper had lots of time to clean out his/ her system during the long delay.)
Talk about a shitty situation!
