It’s a universal affliction for travelers: the dreaded flight delay. They might make you want to scream, throw things, maybe punch a wall or two, craft some angry tweets — we’ve all been there. However, most of us manage to keep it together in such situations. And then, there is the woman at the JetBlue desk at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL), who, when faced with a delay, had a meltdown of epic proportions.

It might not be a competition of “who hates delays the most,” but if it were — this woman, who has yet to be identified, definitely takes the cake. The incident occurred on Sunday at FLL, when a computer error caused her flight to be delayed 10 hours. The woman was captured on video lifting herself up on the help desk by her arms and shouting a string of insults and complaints at a JetBlue staff member.

“Who does that to a woman like me?” She said. And then she added, yelling: “Get me out of here!”

She even goes on to call the staff member a “rapist” and claim she had a gun. Then, she picks up her bag and storms away. The incident was captured on video by Dre London. Watch it for yourself here:

The “end of the chaos,” according to London, came when Broward County Police were called by airport staff to subdue the woman. This part of the saga can also been seen on London’s Instagram post. As for the fallout, a spokesperson from JetBlue Corporate Communications told Yahoo! Lifestyle that despite the effort, the woman was denied boarding because there were some “indications of intoxication and [she] became disruptive.” No kidding.
