Flight Attendant Distracts Passengers From Departure Delay With Hilarious Safety Instructions

An airline attendant distracted passengers from some flight-delay woes by delivering some safety instructions in a hilarious manner while on the tarmac at Baltimore/Washington airport.

Shahyra Monique Grant told Storyful that the front wheel of the plane wouldn’t release, which resulted in a delay of over an hour during her trip back in May 2022.

In the video, which she posted on TikTok, the steward can be seen entertaining the passengers by adding jokes to his safety instructions.

“If you are travelling with more than one child, first of all why, sweetie? We’re going to Puerto Rico,” the steward can be heard saying in his oxygen mask instructions, adding, “but look to the left and then look to the right, and then choose the one with the most earning potential after college.”

Grant praised the staffer, saying, “It was because of that flight attendant that we all made it through that flight. He was able to keep us all distracted with humor while we waited to takeoff.” Credit: Shahyra Monique Grant via Storyful

Video transcript

- If you're traveling with children or anyone that's acting like one, make sure you put your own mask first. And if you're traveling with more than one child, first of all, why, sweetie? We're going to Puerto Rico. But look to the left. And then look to the right. And then choose the one with the most earning potential after college. And then what can we do from there?

[INTERPOSING VOICES]

Sit back and relax, or stand up and be tense. I don't care. We're going to take you to Puerto Rico anyways. I suppose it will take us three hours and 36 minutes to get down there. [INAUDIBLE] we're lucky enough to be trained by desperate Puerto Rican women going there in 15 minutes. And if you don't find anything about this funny, look up the word humor. And add that to your personality. That's definitely the reasoning before swiping left here at Christian Mingle. Enjoy your flight.

[LAUGHTER]

[SPEAKING SPANISH]

[INAUDIBLE] baby, please refer to the safety information card in the seat back pocket nearest you. Now, my flight attendants are coming by because they simply do not trust you. They're going to go ahead and check that your seat belts are securely fastened, your seat backs and tray tables are in their full upright and locked position, and all them carry-on items are stowed all the way underneath that seat in front of you, leaving that area around your feet completely clear.

Now, ladies, this does include that Louis Vuitton, that Gucci purse, especially, the fake Gucci purse. I'll tell you what's going to happen. Once we get up to 10,000 feet, the Gs going to pull up. And then you're going to find yourself in the ghetto streets of San Juan with a Ucci purse.

[LAUGHTER]

I don't know who you think you're playing. But I know what I me because we all know if that was a real Gucci, you'd be flying Delta to San Juan OK?

- OK.
