Lady Refuses To Give Airport Security Her Expensive Bottle of Cognac
Don’t you hate when that happens? You’re in line at the airport security and you forgot that you have that newly purchased 22 oz. bottle of luke-warm Coca-Cola hidden away in your carry-on bag.
You absolutely HATE to waste it so here goes nothing! Time to chug that puppy and deal with the variety of unhealthful consequences once you get past security.
Well, what if that bottle was a $200 bottle of Cognac? Most people would probably NOT chug this. However, one brave soul in China stood up to the airport security powers that be and decided she would not let them have her stash. Instead, she went over to the side and quietly chugged the bottle.

Identified only as Miss Zhao, her recent attempt to slip a bottle of imported Cognac past airport security in Beijing left her with way more than a hangover.
Although there was most definitely a hangover, too.
When Zhao, a woman who appeared to be in her forties, arrived at Beijing Capital International Airport for a noon flight transfer to Wenzhou, she was stopped at the security checkpoint for trying to bring an entire bottle of Rémy Martin XO Excellence, valued at roughly US $200, through in her carry-on baggage. No big deal, right? But a bit of a dilemma.
she took matters into her own hands and “sat down in a corner and drank the entire bottle of Cognac herself.” Gotta love Ms. Zhao and her can-do attitude.
Unfortunately, our travelling buddy couldn’t hold her liquor very well. According to reports, she quite quickly began “acting wildly and yelling incoherently.” She fell to the floor and stayed there until the police arrived. They took one look at her and did not allow her to board her flight. Zhao’s family was called to pick her up and, when she sobered up, she was released to them.
Not exactly how she expected to enjoy her expensive Cognac, we’re sure, but she certainly wasn’t letting the good stuff go in the trash. Or in an industrious security officer’s backpack.
Because, after all, that’s where we all truly believe our good stuff goes after it is confiscated at security, don’t we?
That Cognac would probably have gone down nice and smooth.
Miss Zhao knows it, too. And she was simply not going to let that bottle go down anyone else’s gullet but her own.
