How low can you go?

A Canadian woman travelling on a flight with Continental Airlines has been charged with a Level 1 followed by a Level 2 crew complaint. First of all, what the heck is a Level 1 or Level 2 crew complaint? And why?

After reading the complete article I still don't know what a Level 1 or 2 complaint is, but an upgrade to Level 3 means "possible mandatory detainment by U.S. authorities for 24 hours, RCMP involvement and criminal charges for an act of war upon an American."

So... that's basically some terrorist action I suppose? Now that we've got that out of the way, let's see "why" she was charged with a Level 1 and 2 complaint.

Deborah Wolfe (the woman charged) states the following in an e-mail : "It started during the final leg of a trip back to Vancouver from Florida, when a man seated near her on the Continental Airlines flight took offence to her nursing her 4-month-old son and complained."

Right. Breastfeeding is an act of terrorism now people! Come on, get real... How dumb can people be? Actually, in the end, Wolfe says things were resolved when she signed a document promising "that she would neither break Continental's rules about such things, nor speak to American passengers."

Yes, speaking to American passengers on an international flight seems to be dangerous to your health. After all, they can claim "that the asking of two questions by a 'foreign national' in international airspace made him feel the victim of terror and as such he wanted to file an assault charge."

I bet the man complaining considers breasts to be deadly weapons and reason to file an assault charge. Oh wait... it wasn't even about the breasts. It was because a "foreign national" had spoken to him.

Words can be used as a weapon, but they easily backfire. Especially on the dumb and ignorant ones.
