Disrupted Woman Thrown Off Plane: But I Work for Andrew Cuomo!
No woman, no fly...
No woman no fly...
- Bob Marley (2018 Remix)
A disruptive woman getting thrown off a flight for yelling at a baby and screaming she works for the Governor of New York is everything you need right now. If it even remotely could embarrass Andrew Cuomo (see Andrew Cuomo is Suing to Block You from Getting a Tax Cut and Female Reporter Questions Andrew Cuomo on Harassment. His Response is Unreal…), I'm not throwing away that shot.
"I work for the governor," she can be heard saying at the beginning of the video, referring to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
"She came to the back and slammed her bags down. She said 'this is f----- ridiculous. It's bulls--- having to sit in the back of the plane,'" Rundell recalled.
When Rundell asked Peirez to stop swearing around her young child, Peirez allegedly said "shut the f--- up and shove it."
"She was screaming at the baby," Tabitha says.
"You may not have a job tomorrow," Peirez told a flight attendant before being removed from the plane on Feb. 6.
Plot twist: Peirez may be the one without a job. This little dustup over a tiny tot got her suspended. Tell her you care. Send her a gift basket of Depends.
No one likes sitting next to screaming children on an airplane. Or anywhere. Air travel is stressful, I get it. A bunch of strangers shoved into a sealed tube, shooting across the sky at 32,000 feet, sharing the same air and tiny space, placated with peanuts. Really, it's kind of amazing there aren't more acts of violence in the air. But to bitch before the plane even takes off about a crying child, enough to make a spectacle of oneself, is borderline insane. This is why God created noise-canceling headphones. You close your eyes, put on Bruno Mars, and ignore everyone around you. Apply the same measure when out of doors, to avoid annoying people on the regular. It's a lot less embarrassing for your family than to have to see you as a crazy person screaming at a baby.
Who would you rather sit next to on a plane: a baby who doesn't understand, or a grown woman working for the governor, who bitches and screams about a baby? Not a tough call.
The airline could have been worse though...
