A Comedy of Errors

For reasons you'll soon understand, I'm barely coherent enough to think, let alone write. I had a few ideas for posts to write, but since I don't currently have the wherewithal to do them justice, a summary of the past 24 hours of my life will hopefully give you a bit of entertainment.

10:00am

It's the day before the cruise, which means that I have a bunch of stuff that needs to get done before I leave the states for a month. As I slide out of REM sleep I miraculously remember that today is the last day I can ship my failing RV batteries back for warranty service. Each one weighs 70 pounds.

CATHAY MANAGEMENT ABUSE: Transcripted Discussion With Police

On SEBASTIAN MARSHALL

Legal counsel has advised me not to release any transcripts aboard the plane until civil and criminal investigations are concluded. The police have already told me I committed no crimes that they're aware of and won't be held or charged, but we will be pursuing Cathay's management and security team.

I'll be releasing what transcripts I can.

Everyone was notified the audio recorder was on repeatedly, and it was held prominently in view. This transcript was made by someone who has English as a second language, and minor grammar errors are here, but this gets the general details of the discussion. This is immediately following removal from the airplane.

Date: 2011.12.26 Time: 18:54 Location: Hong Kong Airport

SM: Okay, they're taking me off. Okay, thank you guys, thank you, see you later. Alright, i'm under arrest.
