    Don’t Kick Up A Fuss If Your Heart Isn’t In It

    | Sacramento, CA, USA | Top

    (We have just landed. One of the passengers has suffered a medical emergency. Paramedics are on the way, and we’ve asked the other passengers to wait until the man has been safely moved from the plane. One of the other passengers speaks up.)

    Passenger #1: “What is this? Why can’t we get off?”

    Me: “Sir, one of the passengers has just had a heart attack. We need to get him off the plane before everyone else.”

    Passenger #1: “This is s***! Why should we have to wait? I want to get off!”

    Me: “I’m sorry, sir. You’re going to have to wait like everyone else until we’ve taken care of the emergency.”

    Passenger #1: “Let us get off!”

    (Another passenger speaks up.)

    Passenger #2: “Hey! This man just had a heart attack! His life is in danger. Are you really so selfish that you can’t wait five minutes for him to get medical attention? I hope that if you ever have a heart attack on a plane, they don’t wait for you to receive medical attention. Let’s see how that works out for you.”

    (The man sheepishly sits down and the entire cabin applauds.)
