RIP Philo

Who here has flushed a pet hamster at an airport?

Despite it being her ‘emotional support rodent’, she flushed it anyway?

I’m guessing she will eventually settle for a large sum.

I need to come up with a scam like this.

She's mentally ill. She has a letter from her doctor saying she needs to travel with a hamster. This was disclosed to the airline and they knew it. So dealing with a distraught person with a legitimate medical condition, they decided to make a snarky joke about flushing the pet, thinking she wouldn't take it seriously. But she did and now they are trying to CYA.

I think they should be fined under the ADA. Allowing the hamster was a reasonable accommodation and she had a letter from a doctor. The hamster was not huge. It not only would fit in the cabin, she was bringing its tiny cage as her sole carry on, so she wasn't even asking for an extra seat.

They decided to prove who's the boss to a vulnerable person. Shameful.

We need to stop letting these glorified waitstaff dictate shit on airplanes.  If you're paying that much to fly, you should damn well be able to bring whatever the fuck you want.  Half of this shit is just these idiots wanting to exert any tiny bit of power on others, however undeserved.  These airport staff need to be reminded that they are low-wage workers.

Ruseman is pissed! He wants to bring his emotional support rodent on the plane! Did you get that rodent after your wife dumped you for another man?

My phobia is being trapped on a plane with every other seat occupied by noisy, defecating pets, all fighting each other and knowing their owners need a mental health certificate just to fly.

"British Airways, meanwhile, says that it has had no increase in requests - because it doesn't allow passengers to bring any emotional support animals on board."

There is still some sanity.
