United just f*cked so many people because THEY overbooked a flight.

Also, why were they doing this after people had already been seated? I've been on plenty of overbooked flights before, they always bump people at the gate, before they board. It sounds like the airline employees were completely incompetent.

All the **** going on in the world and this goes viral lol

Oh so shocking that the police use force to enforce the law
I firmly believe you posted this just to be a little sh*t. If that's what you'd do then have fun being pushed around like a chump. You wouldn't though. You'd be pissed. You're just trying hard to be against the majority. The outrage for this is perfectly acceptable and I'm one who thinks that this "outrage" culture is killing the country. This however, is acceptable reaction to what actually happened.

I got a medical marijuana delivery and it turns out that I got the last joint. When I went outside to smoke it ten minutes later I noticed that the delivery man was knocking on my door. I went to him and he told me that one of the employees really wanted that joint and I'd have to give it back. I refused, and the police came and knocked me out to return the joint to the delivery driver.

I should've just given him the joint right?

There's groups of people who I will always comply with and be respectful of, regardless of the circumstances.

Doctors.
Police.
And since 9/11, Airline employees.

Take the cash and free hotel room rather than trying to "win" in that situation.

Not a healthy way to approach your rights being violated. Give em an inch and they'll take a mile.

I forgot to add people who serve me food.

Cop wrongfully pulls you over for whatever reason. You have two options.

a) act like a dick

b) act with respect

I choose B.

Surely an airline should be more concerned with keeping their passengers ie customers happy than their staff? I mean, if this was an emergency, someone needed to get to hospital etc, sure, you would expect the guy to give up his seat. But for a ****ing worker at the airline? Someone whose salary, at this point, he is paying or at least contributing to? Don't understand. **** United Airlines.

Yeah except you aren't a dr. that has the important job of getting to his patients on time by the morning.
