Anthony Bourdain's Twitter Rage Spirals As Flight Is Delayed

Keep it cool, Anthony Bourdain … stay calm … hold it …. Oh nuts. Anthony Bourdain’s fury at a delayed American Airlines flight couldn’t be contained as the notorious loudmouth started letting everyone on Twitter know about how much he was being inconvenienced, before describing each update in increasing, desperate detail.

It started innocuously enough, with Bourdain telling his wife he didn’t think he’d be getting to where he needed on time. Then things got mad. "Love the poor gate agent, standing mute under the "on time " sign when clearly we are f***ed. #AA. What does "special situation" mean in airlines speak? Ain't nothin special about late departure #AA” came the first one. Then, like drizzle to a storm, they tumbled. “But but I had timed my airport margaritas and Valium for a timely departure! #AA” he rumbled on, adding “This #AA thing is gonna get all Withnail and I real soon.”

Bourdain had apparently retired to the Panini bar by this point, and found out the situation eventually: “Latest news is it took #AA two hours to admit a passenger dropped a wet deuce on a seat. Need to change planes.” His finally message cryptically read “Now pilots roaming freely…waiting for Godot. #AA”. He hasn’t tweeted since, so we don’t know if we reached his destination; it could well be that someone simply grabbed his phone off him, tired of his tedious updates.
