A sanctimonious leftie from our town’s bohemian French Quarter shared his latest gripe with Qantas this morning on social media, telling his like-minded followers that the flag-carrier has ruined his month-long European holiday by losing his bag.
The airline told Stephen Conner that they would try to locate his lost bag of Academy Brand chinos and Uniqlo button-ups in due course but that wasn’t good enough for the entitled city worker who paid good money to fly on the one-premium sky bus.
“I last saw my bag in Rome,” said the 38-year-old.
“Now I’m back in Betoota some 28 hours later and my bag is not here, waiting for me. So I did what any other self-righteous yuppie does in this situation. I vented to my social media echo chamber, where my opinions on this matter were validated,”
“Then, I did what my parents would do. I went and found the nearest Qantas employee and I gave them a piece of my mind. This has ruined my holiday.”
One of those employees was Min Chen, who works at the QantasLink service desk at Remienko Memorial Aerotropolis.
Ms Chen told The Advocate that Stephen walked up to the desk while she was on the phone speaking to Brisbane about the bags that didn’t make it on the 9:45am to Betoota.
She smiled at Stephen as he strode to the desk.
“He waved at me from six feet away,” she said.
“I nodded and smiled but he insisted I put the phone down and speak to him. When I did speak to him, he asked me why I thought it was OK to treat paying customers like this. He asked me to find his bag. I told him I’d try and that we’d call him when it turns up at Betoota. He asked when that was, I said soon hopefully and he just exploded. Honestly, these people,”
Min is currently on administrative leave after giving Stephen a piece of her mind.
“You’ve just spent a month in Europe, you spoilt cunt. You’re rich enough to fly to Italy in peak season. You’re rich enough to eat like a fucking pig, put palm handfuls of chimp up your face in Greece. Rich enough to stay inside Zone 2 in London. You’re rich enough to buy some new clothes, you fucking yuppie cunt. That’s all you are. Just a yuppie cunt that walks around looking like they’ve been poured into cheap chinos and shirts made by 10-year-olds in Bangladesh. Just shut the fuck up. The cunts out there on the tarmac are getting paid fuck all. They don’t want to be there, I don’t want to be here. You take your shit and you shove it back up your fucking arse, you dumb entitled yuppie cunt. Fuck off back to Europe. You can afford it. Just put it on your credit card, you cunt. Fuck you. Fuck you and your bag. Fuck off.”
The Advocate reached out to Qantas for comment but has yet to receive a reply.
More to come.
