Those wacky French gals

If I have learned one fact in my life it is that stupidity and drunkenness is as bad a combination as fire and gasoline. Am I wrong mon amour? Consider a 34-year-old French woman named Sadrine Helene Sellies.

BRISBANE, Australia (AP) — A French woman who is terrified of flying admitted in an Australian court Monday that she drunkenly tried to open an airplane door mid-flight to smoke a cigarette.

Sellies claimed to have taken sleeping pills and drank before she left the ground because of her fear of flying.

Mon dieu! She was only trying to settle her nerves. I mean, when you are anxious there is nothing better than a little fresh air.

“Open ze damn door before I get really obnoxious!”

The judge, who told Sellies that one must behave while on an airliner, placed her on a bond of almost $750 U.S. dollars and told her she would have to pay that amount if she did something similarly stupid within the next year. For the sake of future airline passengers who might have to share a cabin with Sellies, I certainly hope she will heed the judge’s advice.
