Southwest Airlines Just Gave The Ultimate Clapback To A Twitter Troll
By Aimee Lutkin
5 hours ago
Everyone loves messing with airlines lately, and for good reason. If they can torment us, the least we should be allowed is to blow off some steam once in a while. Unfortunately, it’s usually underpaid sales reps dealing with it, not high powered executive monsters. But that means the people on the other side of your complaint might actually be worthwhile people!
Twitter user @xadoringpaige shared screenshots of their conversation with a Southwest Airlines rep, in which they accuse a certain flight attendant of some very disappointing service:
After making up an elaborate story about a stewardess calling them a “fattie” for asking for extra sugar for their coffee, they lay the blame on one of the most notorious plane servers of all time:
And the service rep, Linnea, was ready with the perfect comeback! It’s so good, you have to wonder if there’s some sort of Britney Spears recognition software programmed into their response mechanism. Maybe this happens all the time? If it didn’t before, it will now.
@xadoringpaige has thousands of retweets on that convo and is starting to get pissed about the free press for Southwest. They want a free ride:
No such thing as a free ride, unfortunately. Just ask Britney, b*tch.
