Although I am still waiting for my headache to go away, the hoopla about my experience on Southwest Flight 812 is slowing down and I’m starting to catching up on my “coverage.” The good news, I don’t think I screwed up the interview on Good Morning America despite being half asleep (see here) and the NPR coverage was accurate (see here). The annoying news? People are mean!
“She turned her cell phone on at 10,000 feet and texted her husband”. What’s the deal with texting these days? I don’t know about the rest of you, but my first instinct, if I were in a I’m-going-to-die-and-there’s-nothing-I-can-do-about-it situation, would be to CALL those I love so I could hear their voices one last time.
The rational reply (and absolutely correct, by the way):
If the hole cause a lot of noise calling may have been inneffective.
What’s the deal with calling people these days? I don’t know about the rest of you, but my first instict, if I were in a I’m-going-to-die-and-there’s-nothing-I-can-do-about-it situation, would be to send those I love an old school handwritten letter!
They just released her text: “OMG like there is a ginormous hole in the plane. This O2 mask stinks! lol C ya soon! PS I heart U.”
Is it all this texting causing holes to be blown into the plane? Aren’t cell phone suspect number one in plane crashes? They never tell us why they just say if you turn on your phone, all will die.
Well a plane travels how fast? Engine noise? Winds tearing in?“Honey we’re going to die I love you!”
