年長的女士過來坐在我旁邊的飛機上。 她讓我幫她把包放在頭頂行李箱裡。 但是坐在對面的一位紳士很快就走了進來。 （我個子不高，頭頂行李箱是我不惜一切代價盡量避免的。
她立即坐下，開始了談話。 她很愉快，說得很好。 所以，我們在飛往迪拜的航班上一直在聊天。
突然，當飛行員宣布我們現在開始下降到 DXB 時，我的好朋友“出現”了胃痛。 我懷著一顆善良的心，按下了空姐的按鈕，空姐過來查明問題所在。 我告訴她我的同桌感覺不舒服。
而這位女士，她突然開始稱呼我為“我的女兒”。 空姐告訴我，除了給她一些止痛藥，等我們降落，他們什麼都做不了。 飛行員宣布我們在船上有醫療緊急情況，並建議我們所有人保持冷靜。 我的新朋友哭得像瘋了似的流著汗。 她拒絕放開我的手……每個人都以為我們認識對方。
因此，我們降落在 DXB，幫助將行李放在頭頂行李艙的同一位紳士取出了她的行李。 但當他拿走行李時，他建議我與這位女士保持距離，並向機組人員明確表示我們不是一起旅行。 他是天賜之物！
所以確實，機組人員來問我是否有親戚關係，我斷然告訴他們我們是在飛機上認識的。 我根本不認識她。 所以，我們開始下飛機，當我說再見時，她一直求我提她的手提包。 我好傷心……但這位先生看著我的眼睛，用力地搖了搖頭。 他遞給我一張紙條，告訴我讓機組人員處理她。
當我們等待行李通過時，我聽到了這種騷動。 我的“新朋友”正在奔跑，試圖逃離機組人員，從輪椅上下來！ 她帶著手提包離開了空姐，帶著剩下的手提行李就往出口跑了！ 幸好機場警察比她快。 他們抓住了她，把她戴上手銬帶了回來。
這位女士開始呼喚我。 我的女兒……我的女兒！ 你怎麼能這樣對我......那是我趕上的時候。 她攜帶毒品，並試圖牽連我！
幸運的是，幫她拿行李的那位先生上前告訴機場警察，我和她剛剛在飛機上相遇。 警察拿走了我的護照，並要求她透露我的全名，如果我們真的一起旅行的話。 靠著上帝的恩典，我什至沒有告訴她我的名字！ 我仍然被要求跟隨警察到一個小房間，在那裡我受到了廣泛的訊問。 我在哪裡遇到她？...我在哪裡登機...她在哪裡登機。 等等......我的行李被廣泛搜查並除塵以尋找指紋。
我被告知永遠不要在飛行中或在機場觸摸任何人的行李。 所以，從那天起，我不管你有多少行李，你自己來處理。 我什至不會給你推車來放你的行李！ 你的行李……你的問題……是我的政策。 如果你無法到達頭頂艙，而我是最近的人，請打電話給機組人員，因為我只會給你一個白眼，然後把目光移開！
NEVER DO THIS IN A FLIGHT!!!
If you travel by air a lot, beware of over friendly chatty seat Neighbour's.
The older lady comes and sits next to me inside the plane. She asked me to help her put her bag in the overhead luggage compartment. But a gentleman sitting across quickly came through. (I am not very tall, and the overhead luggage compartment is something I try to avoid at all costs.
Immediately she sits down she strikes up a conversation. She was very pleasant and well spoken. So, we chatted all through the flight to Dubai.
Suddenly, when the pilot announced that we were now proceeding to begin our descent into DXB, my good friend 'developed' stomach pains. Me with my good heart, I pressed the steward's button, and the stewardess came to find out what the problem was. I told her my seat mate was not feeling well.
And this lady, she suddenly began to address me as 'my daughter'. The stewardess told me that there was nothing they could do except give her some painkillers and wait until we landed. The pilot announced that we had a medical emergency on board and advised us all to stay calm. My new friend was crying and sweating like crazy. And she refused to let go of my hand... everyone assumed we knew each other.
So, we landed at DXB and the same gentleman who helped put up her luggage in the overhead compartment removed her luggage. But as he removed the luggage, he advised me to distance myself from this lady and make it clear to the cabin crew that we were NOT travelling together. He was a godsend!
So indeed, the cabin crew came and asked me if we were related, I categorically told them we had met on the plane. I didn't know her at all. So, we began to deplane and as I said goodbye, she kept begging me to carry her handbag. I was so torn... but the gentleman looked me in the eye and emphatically shook his head. He passed me a note telling me to let the cabin crew handle her.
So, I exit the aircraft and leave my 'new friend' to wait for the wheelchair and be handled by the cabin crew feeling very guilty.
As we waited for our luggage to come through, I hear this commotion. My 'new friend' was running, trying to escape the cabin crew, having gotten out of the wheelchair! She left the stewardess with her handbag and just ran towards the exit with the rest of her hand luggage! Luckily the airport police were faster than her. They got hold of her and brought her back in handcuffs.
This lady starts calling out to me. my daughter... my daughter! how could you do this to me..... that's when I caught on. She was carrying drugs and she was trying to implicate me!
Luckily for me, the gentleman who had helped her with her luggage came forward and told the airport police that me and her had just met on the plane. The police took my passport and asked her to reveal my full names if it was true we were travelling together. By God's grace, I had not even told her my first name! I was still asked to follow the police to a little room where I was questioned extensively. Where did I meet her?... where did I board... where did she board. Etc... And my luggage was extensively searched and dusted for fingerprints.
They dusted all her luggage, and my fingerprints were not found anywhere on her luggage or on her handbag!
I was let go with advice never ever to touch anyone's luggage either in flight or at the airport. So, from that day, I don't care how much luggage you have, you will deal with it yourself. I will not even offer you a trolley to put your luggage on! Your luggage... your problem.... is my policy. And if you can't reach the overhead compartment, and I am the nearest person, please call the cabin crew because all I will do is give you a blank stare and then look away!
