Delta's Diarrhea Debacle (a/k/a "Where Will YOU Be When Your Diarrhea Comes Back?!")

This is a horrifying story. (And really, it could have happened to anyone!)

I feel SO sorry for this man, and I think Delta owes him a HUGE, PUBLIC apology, and roundtrip tickets for him and his family to anywhere he wants to go in the entire world.

Clark Howard made a huge deal about it on his radio show today and even said that Delta should be "ashamed of themselves". Clark is right.

Oh My Gosh, HW... I had not heard this story... Poor Guy. He couldn't help it.. When you gotta go, you gotta go!

Hope Delta apologizes and gives him something for everything he went through. How Sad!

I understanding needing to follow regulations. But people have to remember that we are PEOPLE with emergencies sometimes, and rules need to be bent at times. So big deal if he used the business class bathroom.

Like people in business class would care!

Oh my goodness!! Really now. The poor guy had to use the loo and he gets thrown in jail for 2 nights? I completely understand about September 11 and all but when someone seriously just HAS TO GO, it's overkill. I would have said LOOK I HAVE DIARRHEA PEOPLE!! It's either that or shart. If you know what I mean. LOL

Much love from NJ,

Ok before I even click to read the story I am going to guess this was during take off or landing and the guy wasn't allowed to go the restroom and he crapped his pants??? Ok that is just my guess. I'm going to read the story now.

Ok so I was wrong in my assumption. Still an unfortunate situation. If the flight attendant would have just moved the dang cart or let him use the business class bathroom this whole thing would have been avoided. But nowadays, I can see where one would freak if they saw a guy rushing up to the bathroom like that. He should have just said I'm about to CRAP my pants!!! Poor Guy. And they posted his pic too.

My husband said that the guy should have just dropped his pants, shat upon the floor, smiled at the mean flight attendant and said "You have your wish. I didn't use the first class restroom. Now you get to deal with the consequences."

Either way, Delta has a mess on their hands now. The negative PR fallout on this in Atlanta is growing by the day....
