Here’s What Not To Do If You Miss Your Flight
February 25, 2013

Missed your flight? Well, it happens. But if it happens to you, you really shouldn't go on a rampage and start destroying computer equipment at the airport.

Especially if the whole problem is your fault in the first place.

The guy in the video above didn't get that memo. On February 19th, Yan Linkun and his family missed their flight from China's Kunming airport. Twice.

First, they were late for their plane because they were eating breakfast. And then they forgot what time their second flight was leaving.

When airport authorities informed Mr. Yan that he and his family would not be allowed on the plane, he didn't take the news very well. The fun really starts around 1:30 into the video.

And just in case you're wondering who this loose cannon is... Well, he's a government official. Mr. Yan is the deputy chairman of the state-owned Yunnan Mining Corporation, and a member of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Congress.

Since the video went online, he's apologized and stated that he'll pay to replace the computers and equipment he destroyed. He's also been suspended from his job.
