Are All Airline Employees Taking Notes From The TSA?
March 8, 2012 by Sam Rolley
A woman from Burbank, Calif., was arrested after a flight from Los Angeles to Houston because she painted her nails on the airplane.
According to CBS News, Jeanie Daniels was on the flight on Feb. 26 to see her boyfriend, who lives in Houston. Daniels asked passengers on both sides of her if they would mind her painting her nails. They said they would not; a flight attendant, however, took issue.
“I thought it was all going well until the attendant came over and was very upset I was painting my nails, saying it was offending everyone around me,” Daniels told the news station.
The passenger then went to the plane’s lavatory to finish where she was accosted by another flight attendant.
“She said, ‘Weren’t you just told not to paint your nails?’ and I said, ‘Actually, I wasn’t. I was just told it was offending people around me so I did the right thing and went to an enclosed area,’” Daniels said.
When she went back to her seat, the first flight attendant continued to reprimand her, prompting the passenger to ask her to shut up and calling her an expletive.
The disagreement resulted in police officers arresting Daniels when her flight landed and her subsequent detainment for 10 hours before it was deemed that no charges would be filed.
