I was on an airplane and right when we landed a Karen in the back unbuckled and darted to the front of the plane to get off first. She did not make any eye contact and felt that she was special. I’m talking about going from the very last seat on the plane, down the whole row, and past first class. Basically standing at the little kitchen thing in the front. All this time the seat belt sign was still on and we were still rolling down the runway. The flight crew had asked her to return to her seat until we reached the gate but she was not even responding.
Everyone was basically trying to just wait it out, it was a long flight (8hrs) and at this point, we were exhausted anyway. Nobody said a word. Suddenly the captain announced we had a special guest on board and he will be coming out to greet us after we were settled at the gate. The Karen stood there awkwardly until we did the whole, rolling into the gate and whatever planes do when they land for about 15-20 mins.
Everyone sat there waiting to see what the captain was talking about.
Eventually, the captain came out and asked the lady to please move back a little to get to his special guest, then a little more. Then a little more. He was looking from row to row trying to find a specific person. Everyone is watching and looking around to see who it could be.
He kept going and going asking Karen to please step back a few more steps each time. Finally, as they approached the rear of the plane he asked her to sit for a second while he grabbed the intercom at the rear of the plane.
“Ladies and gentlemen I’d like to announce our special guest sitting in seat 42c. Let’s give her a round of applause”
the whole plane with wild with laughter and applause.
I loved every moment of that.
