“When you have tight-knit family or friends who are kind of ‘street lawyers’ giving you advice, they are probably the biggest impediment to reasonable settlement. Sometimes the only way to avoid that is to remove the people from the outside influence.”

Presenting 3 case studies to help you gain overnight fame when you take a plane
Case study 1: Pooping Kid (on seat)
“…on a recent Delta flight from Beijing to Detroit, there was a little boy who needed to defecate, and his accompanying grandparents and parents unbelievably laid out newspaper on the seat to have the child “relieve” himself on the spot under the stares of everyone else. Nearby passengers urged the elders to take the child to the restroom, but the child’s grandfather insisted on letting the child defecate on the newspaper placed on the seat. Then a stewardess came over to speak to them but the elders were unmoved, leaving the flight attendant no choice but to drop the subject. As a result of the child defecating in public with lots of people around, the odor polluted the entire cabin, and there were complaints from all the other passengers.” Source
Long story short: little boy wanted to shit -> grandparent insisted on letting the kid shit on the newspaper they (the accompanying adults) beautifully laid on the seat -> little boy shitted -> other passengers poisoned
Case study 2: Pooping kid (on aisle)
Same race, same concept, different dump site Source
Case study 3: Flying emotional supportive pig
“A 70-pound pig and its human companion were removed from a US Airways flight last week at Bradley International Airport in Connecticut. A woman and her emotional-support pig were asked to get off the DC-bound flight early on Wednesday after passengers reported that the animal began to defecate in the aisle…A passenger told ABC news that he initially thought the the woman was carrying a duffel bag over her” Source
Yet to come up with something news-worthy to bring on my next flight.
