thats not as bad as

A 57-year-old man was dead on a hospital toilet for one and a half days before being discovered by staff, it has emerged.

when a nurse came to his bed at 7:30pm to give him his test results, his bed was empty and the patient had disappeared. Staff searched for the man in the immediate vicinity of the ward, but did not find him.

they didn't look in the crapper

Some people will sue over anything! I guess one of the stewardesses should be designated to count passengers instead of saying thank you for flying with American Airlines.It's not like he was left in the plane for days.

Guess no one had to use the bathroom.

But yet it is still sad that he died alone.

Comic releif is what most of us do.Nothing can be done for this person.Lifes tragedies need a lite-hearted angle.I know.I worked in a cemetary for 8months.When seeing family after family suffering a great loss,it begins to take a toll on YOU!I was exposed to such sadness 6 days a week,that we'd began to chuckle,laugh,make jokes(not in the presence of the family).It's not disrespect,its a reaction to cope with being around so much sorrow.It's a safty valve for our mental health.So,when sad stories are on the posts,there will be a lot of jokes.It's not about being mean.We all read/hear tragedy in the media everyday.If you're serious ALL the time,you'll crack.Com ments from any pyschcologist on this?

Apparently . the flight attendants were rather lax in their duties. When the lav door is closed and locked a light appears to indicate "occupied". Furthermore, AA may have checking lav's part of their post flight checks.
