The so-called “war on Christmas” continued for a man in New York last night, although I think he was fighting this battle on his own.
This incident took place Tuesday at LaGuardia Airport involving a man headed for Dallas.
The man was waiting to board when a gate agent greeted him with a pleasant, “Merry Christmas.” The New York Post reported that the man responded, “You shouldn’t say that because not everyone celebrates Christmas.” The man heard the greeting again on the plane, and began to angrily lecture attendants and the pilot.
He was eventually escorted off the flight. There was no reason given for his attitude, but we’ve considered a few possibilities.
First of course, might be the man’s willingness to carry on the spirit of Grinchitude all year round. And the man was said to have been traveling alone, so perhaps his date or his significant other was stuck in holiday traffic.
