Found this somewhere but the link was funky so I'll just share it this way...;)

This is one of those situations where you can't help but feel sorry for someone and at the same time it's hard to not laugh.

A 78 year-old woman checking in at Sweden's main airport has probably just had her worst airport experience ever.

The woman was preparing to fly from Stockholm's Arlanda airport to Germany on Tuesday.

But, unfortunately, she misunderstood some instructions while checking in and placed herself on the unmanned baggage belt, instead of her luggage!

Seriously!

Grandma was then whisked away down a baggage chute!!!!

She ended up at the baggage handling centre.

Luckily staff members were on hand to help her get up.

And, on a very good note, she suffered NO serious injuries and was even able to catch her flight to Germany.

Poor, old lady. We have a feeling she won't be flying anytime soon.

She definitely shouldn't be traveling alone!

This is a joke, right?

You better say yes, otherwise poor Irv will not have a brain because it escaped to play in the blender.

Oh, Irv, I'm sorry to tell you that it's real.

There have been a few news stories about the event in the past week.

*turns off blender*

*retrieves the remnants of Irv's suicidal brain*

*attempts to return said remnants to Irv*

*shrugs, as the remnants hop out of hand and run back to the blender*

As Kia said, sadly its not a joke. But damn , is it funny!!!

*sips Irv's brain slushie*

Moving sidewalks scare me too...I always stumble when its time to get off.

Brain reforming in digestive tract? The first thought to come into my brain was "Sh*t for brains." But that's not technicallly right. It's more "brains for sh*t." :D Poor Irv, your brain's done a lot to itself over the years on CS. It'd almost make a good drinking game! :lol:

I am intrigued....

"Take a drink when Irv's brain hops into the blender/food processor."
"Take a drink when Irv's brain hops into the oven and leaves a note reading "NO FUNERAL."
"Slam the entire bottle when Irv's brain breaks." (You WILL be blotto afterwards.)

Some airlines fly to places where most people don't travel by airplane. It can be interesting having these people onboard as they often are not familiar with Western style lavatories etc
