5. Plane Lands for Bathroom Break
You probably know to use the restroom before you get on a plane, but after the bathrooms broke on a cross-country Delta flight, a pit stop was necessary. Passengers indulging in the complimentary water and soda from New York to Seattle couldn’t take it any longer—forcing the plane to land in Billings, Montana! There was no gate available, so ground crews had to quickly roll out a staircase for passengers to make a speedy egress.
4. Serve Yourself at Waffle House
After finishing a night of drinking, Alex Bowen of South Carolina headed to the Waffle House in Columbus for a late-night snack. Unfortunately, the staff was fast asleep. Not wanting to wake them, Bowen took matters into his own hands, helping himself to the kitchen and making a Texas bacon cheesesteak melt. He ate his meal, cleaned the grill, then went on his merry way.
