On Time Departure at National Airport

As an arrogant North American held up the line of passengers at Silvio Pettirossi International Airport in AsunciĆ³n, Paraguay, fellow travelers became antsy about departing on their flight to North America on time.

A polite airline employee repeatedly explained to to the American passenger that no outside food was permitted on the aircraft, but the American didn't seem to understand even the most rudimentary Spanish.

When the airline employee confiscated the snack and deposited it in the quarantine barrel, the American, identified as Dick Richard Clofterman, pushed into the area marked as off limits and began digging in the barrel, throwing discarded items over his shoulders. Immediately, Paraguayan National Guardsmen on security duty at the gate circled the disruptive gentleman with weapons drawn and he was taken away as the line of weary passengers applauded.

The flight departed on time.
