I was walking a trail, stepped off a rock onto what looked like grass.
It was a ditch, and I found myself waist deep in swamp.

I was on my way back from Israel. I was flying TWA (that explains it!) We were about 10 minutes in the air when there was a deafening sound and the plane jerked down-wards. The pilot made an anouncement on the PA system that we were going to make an emergency landing and we shouldnt be alarmed to see emergency personnel on the runway. They were supposed to be foaming the runway but we were losing too much altitude too quickly they didnt have a chance to do it and landing was a bit…. rough & loud! B”H everyone was ok, noone got hurt. What happened was an engine had exploded and caused the other 3 engines to go up in flames…. Good Times!
It was actually pretty big news in Israel 🙂November 5, 2010 12:02 am at 12:02 am #1011024

I was too young to really chap what was happening (I was 11)
People always ask me if I have a fear of flying and I dont… as long as there are no Middle Eastern looking males (so, I’m a racist!)
Which reminds me, a couple months after 9/11 I was flying and the Captain did a walk through of the plane and I looked at his name tag: Mohammad. My tehillim was put to good use on THAT flight 😀November 5, 2010 4:12 am at 4:12 am #1011027real-briskerMember
sac – thats coolNovember 5, 2010 4:31 am at 4:31 am #1011028
I guess you are lucky you were young and dint chap. Most people who were older who did chap probably were left with an acute fear of flying that probably lasted them a while.
Captain Mohammad? After 9/11? Im surprised nobody raised a stink.November 5, 2010 4:58 am at 4:58 am #1011029

One of the times that I almost got arrested. I was in yeshiva and a baalhabus wanted to donate some furniture (beds) to the yeshiva. I went along to help schlep. We went in a uhaul to his deceased parents house in a quiet, not yeshivish town, at night. We finished loading up and were about to leave, when the cops blocked the driveway. A neighboor had called. B”H, the son hadn’t driven totally away and noticed what hapenned. He wasn’t parked in the driveway. He explained what was going on. I can just imagine what would have been a few seconds later. I don’t think the cops would have bought our story. We probably would have been in the town’s police jail for good few hours -till everything was cleared up.November 5, 2010 5:43 pm at 5:43 pm #1011033

BPT, a similar thing happened to me when I was a little girl. We were at the park for a picnic and my dad and I were playing catch when I missed the ball, ran after it, and suddenly found myself sunk halfway in a swampy thing. I was screaming that I was in quicksand, and my daddy saved me. I was never so scared.November 7, 2010 8:57 pm at 8:57 pm #1011038Mother in IsraelMember
While flying from New York to London (my home town), my plane ran out of fuel and we had to stop to refuel. We weren’t allowed off the plane, but when it was time to takeoff, one passenger was unaccounted for. We had to sit and wait for 3 hours while they tried to solve the mystery of the missing passenger. It turned out that the passenger was in the bathroom the entire 3 hours–doing what, I’m not sure, but he was found in the end. He didn’t even seem embarrassed.November 7, 2010 9:57 pm at 9:57 pm #1011039minyan galMember
About a year ago I was baking on a Sunday afternoon and ran out of flour. As I also needed to pick up a prescription, I ran out to the supermarket. I picked up my prescription and paid for it. I then picked up a bag of flour, went through the cashier and started to leave the store. A young man came up to me and said “Ma’am you have something in your handbag that you haven’t paid for and you will have to come with me.” Well, the kid was young enough to be my grandson and had a huge grin on his face. I followed him (like a lemming) to the customer service desk, but I began screaming at him that never before had I been treated like that. He kept claiming that he saw me put something in my purse near the pharmacy. Yes, I had put my wallet away. I emptied my entire handbag out and then he said “apparently I was mistaken”. Well, I let loose and demanded to see the store manager. The person at the service desk felt so badly for me that she came out from behind the desk and put her arms around me. The “security” kid said that he was going to write his report. At that point, I detained him and told him that he wasn’t going anywhere until the manager arrived. He still had the stupid snicker on his face. When the manager arrived he explained that security was provided by an outside organization and he gave me a phone number to call on Monday morning. The kid who “arrested” me decided to leave at this point – still smiling. I told him that I would have the last laugh when he lost his job. The next morning, bright and early, I was speaking to the owner of the company. When I told him about the incident he told me that he would investigate. He called me back within the hour and told me that this kid had been called for a review the next day. The next day the owner called me back and told me that the kid had been terminated. While I felt badly that he had lost his job, his actions had been totally inappropriate – as he smiled throughout the incident. I guess to compensate me and prevent me from seeking legal action, they sent me a $100.00 gift certificate. Now, that is the craziest thing that has happened to me. Can you just imagine my grandson saying “my Bubbie, the shoplifter”?November 8, 2010 2:19 am at 2:19 am #1011040barlevParticipant

I traveled overseas erev Yom Kippur and our luggages got lost withing the airline.
We spent a frantic 24 hrs worrying if we’ll get our things back in time for Yom Tov(clothing, food…)
Upon our arrival we shopped for basics that we needed for the day(underwear, a fresh towel, socks, pajamas…)
A few hrs before Yom Tov we went to the airport and picked up the found luggages.
One FULL suitcase with ready cooked food went straight to the garbage can.
It was an experience! Not very spiritual for Erev Yom Kippur!November 8, 2010 11:14 pm at 11:14 pm #1011045minyan galMember

A basketball backboard fell on me.April 8, 2014 4:29 pm at 4:29 pm #1011047
me and my friends were shopping in a mall and a security guard told us to follow him. he led us to a office and he said that we were being to noisy, and we were disturbing the shoppers (we may have made a little noise but not enough to disturb) and he said that we had to wait there until a parent or guardian came to pick us up. I was the only one of us 4 who had a phone.. but it was dead and they refused to let us use their phone.. so me and my friends started to scream.. a few people actually came to see if they could help but when they got there the guy told them that everything was under control.
after a hour of screaming our throats were killing us my friend got an idea. she started to flirt with the security guard!
after about 30 sec. he asked for my friends #, he was so disappointed when she didn’t give it to him.. I wonder why….then he actually let us go!
as we were leaving another security guard came in with a group of teens (not Jewish) only then he realized his mistake…he was so embarrassed. he begged us not to tell anyone… we said okay and the second we got out of that office we stopped the first person passing by and borrowed their phone and we called 911
now we laugh at the story but when it happened it was really scary!April 8, 2014 5:46 pm at 5:46 pm #1011048
