Fighting Spirit Airlines
A couple of weeks ago, at Fort Lauderdale airport employees of Spirit Airlines were attacked by three passengers. The passengers apparently got angry when their flight was delayed, so they started hurling items at the employee. They started by throwing water bottles, food containers and shoes and then just ran over to the employee and started attacking her. Check out the video to see the wild throw down.

Welcome to our brand new segment! We’ll be reading bad reviews of some of the world’s most famous and loved landmarks and destinations. On today’s episode, Christine reads 1 star reviews Times Square, which was named by our most recent Voyager Chat guest as his most overrated landmark. Listen to his episode here: Keeping Your Cool In A Head-on Bus Crash: Voyager Chat with Jarryd Salem
Here are some snippets from the funny bad reviews:
“This place is torture. Morons and slimeballs converge on giant shopping mall from hell.”
“Go to NYC, they said. It’s the best city on Earth, they said. Times Square is incredible, they said. Incredible it most certainly is. People doing everything they can to separate your bucks from your wallet in what can only be described as a cathedral of consumerism.”
“There wasn’t enough Purell in the world to make you feel clean after one trip along the sidewalk.”
Listen up to hear the full hilarious bad reviews of Times Square!
