This Man's Response To The Greeting 'Merry Christmas' Got Him Kicked Off A Flight

Maybe he celebrates Festivus??

Christmas might be over, but we're still close enough to remember the stress of holiday travel. It's that final week before Christmas when it becomes most apparent that not everyone is filled with the Christmas spirit.

For instance, earlier this week, a man attempting to fly out of LaGuardia airport in New York City was so angered over the simple greeting of "Merry Christmas" that he eventually had to be removed from his flight.

The New York Post reports that the man was slated for the American Airlines Flight 1140 to Dallas on Tuesday, when the gate attendant wished him a Merry Christmas—clearly her first mistake.

"You shouldn’t say that because not everyone celebrates Christmas," the man fired back at her.

“Well, what should I say then?" the agent asked him.

"Don’t say, ‘Merry Christmas!'" he replied.

Okay, I get it. Some people don't celebrate the holiday. But to yell at someone who does enjoy the season while they're in their workplace and are obligated to put up with it? Not cool.

But this minor ire was only a sign of things to come when he actually boarded the plane. Once on the plane, another flight attendant dared level the holiday greeting at him—and he completely lost it.

"Don't say say, 'Merry Christmas!'" he yelled and continued to berate the flight crew so vehemently, that he could not be calmed down and was eventually removed from the plane.

When he was escorted off the flight, the rest of the passengers erupted into cheers. I'm guessing he also got coal in his stocking. But hey, hopefully he did eventually make it to Dallas.
