Too Pretty To Fly?
No, these were not the spoiled brats that were on my flight recently.
On February 14th, 18-year-olds Nisreen Swedberg & Sarah Williams were traveling on Southwest Airlines from Tampa to Los Angeles when they claimed that the flight crew discriminated against them for being “too pretty”.
Apparently, Swedberg claims that she asked a flight attendant for water but was told she had to wait until the beverage service started. Once it did, she was purposely skipped. Then when Williams went to use the lavatory, she tried to get in even though it was locked. Later the passenger emerged and cursed at her for disturbing him and she cursed back. She said she was the only one who was “talked to” by the crew.
“I think they were just discriminating against us because we were young, decent-looking girls. I mean, nobody else really on the plane looked like us except us,” Ms. Williams told a Tampa TV station. Southwest came back with a written statement and a YouTube.com video statement denying that the two young ladies were targeted for anything but bad behavior.

What do you think? Too pretty or too ridiculous?

Oh, this happens to me all the time! You wouldn’t believe how people treat me because I’m so hot in my baggy t-shirt and scrub pants. It’s a curse that some of us just have to learn to deal with
