Social distancing. You just do it. It’s not hard, but it’s one of the CDC guidelines to preventing the spread of the coronavirus. Oh, and you’re supposed to wear a mask, too. It’s not pretty, but those are the rules.
When you book a flight, you commit to those guidelines. Whether you’re Republican or Democrat, you do it because it’s the law.
American Airlines has a strict guideline: you wear your facemask while you’re on the plane. If you’re eating or drinking, you can remove it. When you’re done, the mask goes into place.
Well, someone needed to be told that throwing a punch is not a form of social distancing.
A woman on an American Airlines flight from Las Vegas to Charlotte posted a video of two women going at it because one refused to comply with the mask ordinance. The plane hadn’t even taken off yet.
The women refusing to follow the face mask policy was asked to leave the plane. That’s when she became disruptive and the fight broke out with another passenger. Authorities had to be called in order to get the woman off of the plane.
American isn’t the only one requiring the masks. All of the other U.S. airlines are starting to require the use of masks, too. They’re to be worn at airports as well as onboard the plane. This is not breaking news.
Every passenger is told of the requirements throughout the booking process and again when they get their boarding passes. The woman on the plane knew what the rules were and booked her flight with full knowledge of what she would be required to do.
American made a statement to say that they announced in June that we may deny future travel for customers who refuse to wear a face-covering for the duration of this requirement.”
So, the woman should have known. However, she made her choice. And, since she wasn’t ready to comply, another woman was going to get involved, too. Maybe the other woman thought that she could beat her into submission?
Maybe she thought that throwing some punches would be a great way to stay socially distanced? American Airlines certainly had the problem under control – they didn’t need the assistance of another passenger.
And this is what America has become. We don’t like the laws, so we buck the system. Even though we knew what the rules were, we’re going to fight them anyway. Then, there’s the flip side of, hey, they’re not following the rules so I’ll show them that they have no choice.
Both women on the American flight were in the wrong. One didn’t follow the rules and the other one was determined to make her follow the rules – even while breaking a few on her own.
Americans have become increasingly more violent – but why? Is it that people are simply tired of the pandemic? Or, is it because the Dems have made it okay to be more violent? They certainly don’t seem to have a problem with the violence. In most instances, they don’t even see it.
The rules of flying have changed thanks to the pandemic. You wear a mask. You social distance. If you don’t like it, you have other options for getting from Point A to Point B. The sooner everyone follows the guidelines and acts like adults about it, the sooner we can move on with our lives.
It is not known as to whether either woman was charged. However, it appears that the woman who threw the punch at the woman who was not wearing the mask was allowed to continue her flight to Charlotte.
Whether you want to wear a mask or not is not the point here. The point is that if you’re going to fly, there are rules that need to be followed. Despite what the Dems will have you believe, we are not (yet) a lawless society.
