Ginger McGuire, demonstrating her sleeping posture at her press conference.
Ginger McGuire, of Michigan, was flying from Dulles Airport outside of Washington DC to Philadelphia on Monday night and was so tired she slept through the one-hour flight.
She also slept through the plane landing.
And she slept through every single other passenger disembarking the plane.
And she didn't wake up as the flight crew left the aircraft.
In fact, Ms. McGuire slept on the plane for an additional three hours after it landed, and woke up to find herself alone.
The aircraft landed about 12:30 a.m. at Philadelphia International, but Ginger McGuire said the flight crew didn't bother to rouse her. She did not awaken until 4 a.m. when she found herself alone on the 50-seat plane with all the doors locked.
"Waking up to an empty airplane and not begin able to get out was very horrifying," Ginger McGuire told anyone and everyone who would listen.
Pretty silly, right?
It gets sillier.
Back home in Michigan, after her horrendous ordeal, Ginger McGuire held a news conference--which is what one does when one is seeking fifteen minutes of fame--alongside her attorney, Sheisty McShady, er, Geoffrey Fieger, to announce she was filing a lawsuit against Trans State Airlines, alleging false imprisonment, negligence, emotional distress and breach of contract.
Her ambulance, or in this case, airplane chasing attorney, said: "For a crew of United Airlines and Trans State Airlines to leave her there and lock her in a plane is beyond unacceptable. It constitutes false imprisonment."
It also constitutes abject stupidity.
After waking up alone on a plane, Ginger McGuire said that she walked up and down the aisle for 15 minutes, until, suddenly, the plane's door opened and she was confronted by a TSA officer and two of Phillie's finest. They demanded her ID and questioned her for a horrifying ten minutes.
During which Ginger McGuire told them that she used her cell phone to check the time after her nap, but didn't think to use her CELL PHONE to call anyone.
I say the airline sue her for being the week's biggest dumbass.
Ginger? Honey? Several things make a lawsuit. Falling asleep so soundly that you nap through an entire flight, landing, and as every passenger jostles by you, qualifies not.
You're dumb, Ginger. You're dumb.
