Plane Torn Apart Over Lost Cell Phone

Plane Torn Apart Over Lost Cell Phone
Remember that girlfriend you used to have who would violently dump her purse out onto the floor, even on a subway platform, if it took longer than three seconds to find her ringing cell phone? Well that hyper-aggressive ex of yours (okay, ours) has nothing on the people at the airline Jet2, who literally tore a plane apart to find a missing mobile.

Passengers in Murcia, Spain were held up for three hours as they waited for a flight to Newcastle, England, after a passenger dropped and lost his or her cell phone. The passenger was disembarking the arriving plane when he or she dropped the cell phone and it fell down an air vent. It's not clear from the BBC report whether the passenger saw it fall down the vent or if it simply disappeared from view. Regardless, the pilots decided they couldn't take off until the phone, which was on, was found.

For the next three hours passengers were kept waiting while Jet2 dismantled the cockpit and the front rows of seats in order to find and retrieve a dang cell phone.

Really puts our ex's hissy-fits into perspective. [From: BBC]
