You think you've got a problem there? Everywhere I go, I need to take my emotional support Polka Band. Sure, it's expensive. But it's also a tax write-off.
I think an Emotional Support Pig Roast would be an appropriate response -- along with banning the owner from all plane flights.
“That’ll do, pig.”
These “Support Animals” are the Biggest SCAM out there!! STOP THE MADNESS!! If you are too insane to go without a “therapy animal” they should STAY HOME!
>>Everywhere I go, I need to take my emotional support Polka Band
Support pig gets emotional story.
This is from a Brit paper.
How would our TSA have handled this? Would the pig have gotten on in the first place? If it had to be removed, who would be compensated for the trauma (or drama)?
I figured it didn't happen on board an Etihad Airways flight out of Riyadh.
British paper reporting on Connecticut flight.
Hadn’t thought of that, but logical conclusion.
So many people are using fake support animals these days that it is forcing legitimate support animals to have papers attesting to their need.
It’s not just a single organization, but even a doctor’s note will do. But it needs to be made clear before animals can be brought into places where they are normally prohibited, they must have clearance ahead of time—not just the word of the owner.
>>they must have clearance ahead of timenot just the word of the owner
That makes sense.
I’d like a society where animals were allowed everywhere. They have so much love to offer and it seems that’s needed more and more. The animals need to be controlled or they’re not really emotional support animals but, with that constraint, I’d have them everywhere. And with all the hassles that Muslims are making about taking dogs in cabs, I’m all in favor of there being a lot more emotional support pigs with all the rights that come with that status. I’ve never been near a mini pig, but they seem to have a good reputation for being loving. Though I still go with yesterday’s thread on support squirrels.
My bad for not noticing that it was in CT. I'm embarrassed as an American citizen and voter with purported control of my government. That's not how I would run airlines.
Never bad. Always adorable. But I am curious. How would you have handled the situation?
Is there a sane place left in the world?
If so I want to go there ASAP.
