One father got an entire airline crew involved in a 15-year-long prank war that he had going on with his daughter. What was the main prank at hand that one was trying to accomplish over the other? They were trying to duke it out for who can deliver a “pinch and punch for the first of the month” before the other one.
The “pinch and a punch” prank was based on an old superstition that giving someone a pinch and a punch would bring good luck. And an entire airline of crew members were involved!
In a string of messages on Twitter, his daughter, Bridie Connell, detailed the entire experience on the plane:
“Today is the 1st of May. First of the month! I’m flying home to NZ for my cousin’s birthday. It was an early flight – too early to call dad before I took off. “It’ll have to wait,” I thought as I settled into my seat,” she began.
“Air NZ, my favorite airline. Got moved to a seat with more legroom. Premium economy, winning! Free chocolate. Hooray! … ” followed by, “And then a staff member comes over to my seat. Are you Bridie?” “Yes…” “I’m Beau. Nice to meet you.” Omg, it’s finally happening, the moment I have been dreaming of for years. I’m going to be UPGRADED, baby!! “I have a special delivery for you, Bridie.”
However, it looks like Bridie’s dad shouldn’t get too comfortable with this win. Air New Zealand has already tweeted at Bridie asking what the plan for June was, so it looks like they’re switching sides!
