A few years back, I was on a flight back to the US. There were a number of people, mostly men, who were from Vietnam I think, seated near me. As the flight took off, but too late to stop it actually taking off, it become apparent there was one more man than there were seats. The flight attendants were not amused obviously. He was given an open seat for the take off, and then disappeared with flight attendants. I never did hear what happened or what the situation was.

If it were me,
I'd strike-up a conversation with someone on line
during the screening process in the hope that the
Security Personal would ASSUME that the person
he'd attached himself to was his parent...
when you think about it....from there on out,
he'd be more or less INVISIBLE

The Ticket person would ASSUME he wouldn't be
carrying his own ticket........ get it?

Unless they were really paying attention and
tracking his movements, Security would just keep
passing him through on a series of assumptions,
everyone assuming someone else had seen a ticket.

Somehow he even got through take off without being noticed. I am very curious as to what he was doing or where he was hiding at that point.

~ more assumptions ~

he grabbed an empty seat, and the attendant,
too busy fussing with getting the passengers
settled-in, pre-take-off rigmarole, ..assumed
everyone belonged or they wouldn't be there.


Prolly wasn't until they began making coffee
(& counting heads) that things didn't add up. confused

Mom worked there and it seems he has a history of sneaking in places.


According to the Star Tribune, Moore said child protective workers have investigated the boy's family life four times.

"The reports have been inconsistent and there have been no injuries to the child; however, there is a pattern of behavior," the newspaper quoted her as saying in the e-mail.

The newspaper said Moore wrote that the boy was arrested two weeks ago after allegedly stealing a car. The e-mail didn't indicate whether the boy was the driver of the car or a passenger, the newspaper reported.

The newspaper also said Moore wrote that the boy has alleged that his mother has held a knife to his throat and that she was "stabbed and died."

Ted asked;
"What the heck was he going to do in Vegas?
Gamble? Get a Hooker? ...he's 9 years old?" smirk

My answer,
"Get as close to Mexico as possible?"

Ted, "What the Hell is he gonna do in MEXICO?
...HE'S NINE YEARS OLD!?!" cry

Me; "Slip into Mexico... whistle
...GET AWAY WITH MURDER!" ? blush

This kid might be another catch me if you can type. Interesting.

It was plain from the get-go that what he'd
done was intentionally... he was no angel...
but without more information I couldn't
figure out why he'd want to go to Los Vegas.

Ted had ventured that perhaps his father lived
there.. and he was trying to re-unite with him,
I mused that he was a geeky kid wanting to test
a theory of "How-To Break the Bank @ Vegas" or
a Joy-Ride, or running away from home, or a bad
home situation ...or testing how far he'd get,
but given his history, I tend to doubt any but
the worst possible motive. I hope I'm wrong. frown
