Most of us have come across rude people that make others around them miserable because they feel their needs come first.
A television producer named Elan Gale proved that point with an epic take-down of the rude passenger aboard his flight to Phoenix on Thanksgiving, ending with the woman slapping him!
Elan Gale, whose Twitter bio reveals he is a producer on ABC’s “The Bachelor”, began tweeting from the airport around 11 a.m. on Thanksgiving when his flight was running behind schedule.
Gale gave a blow-by-blow account of his exchange with a middle-aged woman named Diane (in seat 7A) that was making everyone around her miserable.
According to Gale, the woman was getting very angry at the prospect of being late for her holiday dinner.
Gale tweeted, “The male flight attendant said ‘I understand ma’am. I’m looking forward to seeing my family too.’ She responded ‘This isn’t about you'”.
Elan adds, “Her family is very important to her, she says. Her family has a special recipe for stuffing. She needs to be there to help. It is crucial”.
The irate woman couldn’t believe that she might be late, and she wanted everyone to know about it.
The plane finally took off, but the hilarious exchange was just beginning.
The producer tweeted, “She had to sit down because we took off. She has been muttering ‘about DAMN time’ and I can hear her breathing from 5 rows back”.
Elan decided he’d had enough and sent her a little note along with a glass of red wine.
Gale may have been confronting the woman about her behavior, but clearly other passengers were quite aware of her rudeness.
Gale tweeted, “The male flight attendant is giving me the “let’s just pretend this never happened” face. Shaking his head a lot. He gave me two little bottles of vodka but he won’t hand them to her. He says I have to do it myself.”
Just a few minutes later he wrote, “Oh my God I did it I walked as if I was going to the bathroom and I leaned over and put them on her tray table and walked away Oh my God.”
He said she just glared at him. He tweeted, “I’m not going to lie I am shaking this is so terrifying she is so angry at me it’s kind of incredible. I don’t really know what to do now I’m afraid to get out of my seat. This is like being on a roller coaster I’m scared and super excited.”
The woman then sent him a note through the flight attendant.
Gale then told his followers, “Diane is in her late 40s or early 50s. She is wearing mom jeans and a studded belt and she is wearing a medical mask over her idiot face”.
Gale was very angry after her behavior and response in her little note. He then vented his anger in his next letter.
Diane didn’t find his note amusing in the least, threatening to report him to the authorities.
Elan felt it “was on” at that point and shot her back an angry note.
Things turned from silly passing notes to getting physical.
He later explained, “When I got off the plane I waited for her at the gate. I was holding another note in my hand and I was going to give it to her. She walked right up to me and slapped me immediately in the face.”
He said the gate agent for the next flight actually grabbed her and held her back before asking Gale if he wanted the airport police called. Elan replied no.
But he did have one last little note for Diane. It read, “Diane, allow me to introduce myself. I am TheYearOfElan. Look me up online. read every tweet. Read every response. And maybe next time you’ll be nice to people who are just trying to help. He signed off on the note, adding, “PS Eat my d***. Love Elan.”
Now many of you will feel Elan Gale’s note exchange and comments were a tad immature. But we’ve all been forced to deal with a very rude person similar to Diane. Hopefully this will make people think twice before acting like a jerk in public.
