Wackadoo Whacks Passenger

September 2, 2010

in Weird People Stories

My husband and I were flying from Boston to West Palm Beach. The seats across the aisle were empty. At one point more than half way into the flight a woman came and sat in the aisle seat next to my husband. She was clearly off of her meds – scratching her head, moving irrationally, talking to herself. She was seeing things and acting very strangely.

We tried to ignore her but she kept trying to provoke my husband. He stayed very calm. The flight attendants noticed what was going on and watched her. Suddenly she punched my husband out of the clear blue and said “If he doesn’t kill me, I’m gonna kill him.” What she didn’t understand was that in the post 9/11 era you simply can’t threaten to kill people on an airplane. So… she was immediately surrounded by attendants, off-duty airplane personnel and beefy male passengers. When we landed we were greeted by Florida’s finest and the FBI who arrested her for a long list of federal charges. They wanted statements from us but we ran like hell as we didn’t want to end up in some federal trial!

This poor lady appears to have a bit of paranoid schizophrenia. Also I've noticed theres a bit of a go slow, no one seems to be commenting. I'm sure Gregg would not want us to loose interest in the site.

The stories on this site get weaker every month. Your story was short, but finally, a flight truly worthy of being a "flight from hell" That kind of thing doesn't even happen on a cross country Grayhound bus trip!

Yabbut….what about that guy who beheaded that poor man on a bus? I think it was in Canada. Psychos are everywhere, no wonder I do not want to travel.

The most psychos are found at Greyhound terminals
