If you think you're having a crap day...

Just spare a thought for this fella. Tasered, dragged off a plane and sectioned for having the nerve to bring a second bag onto an Easyjet flight.

People need to realise that when you are in airports or on-board planes you don't dick about. Times have changed, just do as you're told, keep your head down and try and survive the whole travel hell as best you can.

Exactly - 200 people stuck in a metal box, on a London to Belfast flight of all things, and this guy thinks it's clever to kick off about an issue with his baggage. And then argue with the cops enough to get himself zapped as well.

They probably just told him one of his bags had to go in the hold!

Re: If you think you're having a crap day...

True, not worth kicking off over a bag. Rules is rules. But to be tasered for it? Somewhat excessive. Either way, the story is pretty funny.

Re: If you think you're having a crap day...

Thing is if a big guy says he's not leaving, which is most likely where it ended up if he was already arguing the toss about his bag, there's no way they'd get him out of an airline seat uninjured.

The old method was probably to beat the crap out of him until he gave in, and in fairness there's not much alternative as you can't really use CS spray on a plane.

Tasering is a bad but moderately better alternative for all.

Another passenger was quoted as saying: "...all because of his manbag".
