I live in a place where things like this happen…

MANILA, Philippines Sep 27, 2005 — Passengers were buckled up when a crew member spotted a mouse darting across an aisle, triggering a chase that grounded a Qatar Airways plane at Manila airport for more than 12 hours.

The airline asked the 243 passengers to disembark, unloaded hundreds of pieces of luggage and brought the Airbus 330-200 to a hangar for a two-hour fumigation, the Philippine Daily Inquirer and the Philippine Star reported. The rodent was never found, so it either escaped or there’s a dead mouse aboard the plane.

The only question I have is, why doesn’t this stuff happen in the U.S.? It would make life there so much more…colorful.
