Controlling those fight or flight responses
For some of us, it's just not worth the fight anymore (especially after this tax season). So what's our option? Just ask 69-year-old Marilyn Hartman, and take to the skies.
You see Marilyn is known as the "serial stowaway," an "inveterate sneaker on to planes," according to The Guardian.1
On Tuesday, March 16, Marilyn was arrested at Chicago's O'Hare Airport for attempting to sneak onto a flight. Seem harsh?
This was clearly not her first trip. In fact she was on probation for an earlier stowaway attempt. Luckily for the airlines, she had been put on electronic monitoring from the earlier charge, so the local sheriff's deputies were able to trace her as she took off for O'Hare.
According to Wikipedia, she's "successfully" flown to Los Angeles, Jacksonville, Florida, London, and even Paris and has been arrested numerous times.2
Unfortunately, Marilyn is homeless and has a history of mental illness. But clearly, she's been clever enough to get past TSA … numerous times.
