From slow, snaking security lines to the race to squeeze your bag into the overhead bin before everyone else, there are enough reasons to feel a bit on-edge while flying these days. The last thing you need is for your airline to seemingly hint that the world would be a better place if you were dead. And yet, that's the message some Delta passengers recently received thanks to a confusingly worded cocktail napkin.
While en-route to the Bahamas on a Delta Air Lines flight last week, Twitter user Natalie Walker did a double-take after reading what she thought to be a truly disturbing message printed on one of the cocktail napkins handed out during the drink service. The tagline in question, which actually reads "The world is better with you out in it" is shockingly easy to misread upon quick glance as "The world is better without you in it," which would be a truly upsetting thing for an airline to suggest to anyone, let alone someone currently flying five miles above the ground in one of its planes.
Walker snapped a photo, pointing out how easily the peculiar phrasing and word placement could be misinterpreted and posted it to Twitter.
