Picture this, you’re an eleven year old girl and an extremely intoxicated professional skier begins urinating on you while you sleep quietly on a plane. That’s what happened aboard a recent JetBlue flight that prompted a landing - all so that Robert “Sandy” Vietze, the urinate-er in question, could be evacuated. Plane travel is an already unpleasant experience for many and can only be exacerbated when mixed with strange situations (and people) like this one. What’s your airplane horror story? Tune in for catharsis, but we’re warning you now – this might be a bumpy ride.
