Never has a more obviously “get your sh*t together” moment been uttered on an airplane than this. The Daily Telegraph reports crewmembers on a plane headed to Sydney were informed that there were drug-sniffing dogs waiting for them. And so, the flight attendant felt it was best to inform everyone on board that if they have drugs in their possession, they should dump it now.
The flight attendant said, “We have been told there are sniffer dogs and quarantine officers waiting in the domestic terminal… If you need to dispose of anything you shouldn’t have we suggest you flush it now.”
And as you might expect, there was an immediate rush to the toilets.
Jetstar confirmed to the Telegraph that this actually happened, and blamed it on a quite eager crewmember who decided to swap out the recorded audio message about quarantining with a cute little message of his own. The spokesperson said, “The crew member’s words were poorly chosen and are plainly at odds with the professional standards we’d expect from our team. We’re addressing the matter with the cabin crew member involved.”
And this is why, kids, you always get high before you fly on planes.
