    More and more passengers are claiming that their pets are flying with them for 'emotional support'.
    Some airlines have policies that do not allow disruptive animals aboard the planes. I have been on numerous flights that have small barking dogs. These dogs were barking at the gate before they board, yet the flight crew will not bar the disruptive animal, because the airline is afraid of a lawsuit. A couple years ago a cross-country flight made an emergency landing because a dog would not stop shitting. The other passengers were dry-heaving as the flight attendants ran out of paper towels to clean the mess. Passengers now also claim that a variety of animals are their ESA: chickens, rats, turtles, pigs, kangaroos. What is this, an airplane or the zodiac placemat at a Chinese restaurant? Is this the future of air travel? Passengers with fake certifications for their pets will get more common as the years go by. I have had enough.

    Yes.

    The "I need a pet to help me cope with Emotional Distress" is narcissistic bullshit.

    Service dogs should be for physical ailments only -- stuff like blindness and seizures. Repeat, everything else is bullshit.

    It's out of fucking control. I can understand seeing eye dogs and true service dogs, but you get the "fragile" dipshits walking into the grocery store with a goddam Chihuahua- WTF is it even for??? If people are so fucked up they have to have a "support" animal, stay home in your fuckin' "safe space"!!

    It's a scam like everything else. Cops told us no dogs on the boardwalk till October. As were walking off another couple is walking on with dogs, so I warn them

    They went into a detailed description of how easy it is to get the dogs classified as service animals. Then the law doesn't apply :cheer:

    Ftr both of the people were 100% healthy Lopz
