From Huff Po:
Marilyn Hartman doesn't let a little thing like airport security get in the way of her travel plans.
Dubbed the "Serial Stowaway," Hartman has been arrested several times for attempting to sneak onto flights across the country or loitering at airports without a ticket. This time, the 63-year-old Californian allegedly got past security and took a flight from Minnesota to Jacksonville, Florida, and checked into someone else's hotel room, Fox News reports.
She was charged with impersonation, defrauding an innkeeper, and trespassing, Nassau County Sheriff's deputies said Monday.
Investigators say Hartman boarded a flight in Minneapolis-St. Paul to Jacksonville Sunday without buying a ticket. When she landed, she allegedly boarded a shuttle bus to the swank Omni Amelia Island Plantation Hotel, where she fibbed her way into a $300 villa.
The jig was up hours later when the real guest arrived, but Hartman disappeared when hotel staff tried to contact her, according to USA Today. Police found her on Monday, reportedly in a ground-floor room that was under renovation.
At this point, Hartman is a skilled stowaway.
Cops say she violated her probation terms that were handed down in August after she tried four times in one day to sneak onboard a flight from San Jose to Los Angeles. She succeeded on the fourth try by sneaking through security checkpoints with a family.
That arrest didn't stop her, either. The following day, security found her wandering through terminals without a ticket at Los Angeles International Airport. She was sentenced to 117 days in jail for violating probation, but was shortly released due to jail overcrowding.
Then, four days later, she was found by airport security -- in Phoenix -- wandering around the terminals without a ticket. She was slapped with a trespass warning, but she was later arrested for again attempting to hang around the airport.
The Transportation Security Administration is investigating how Hartman was able to get on Sunday's flight in Minnesota and others.
Lawyers have said that Hartman is a loner who has no family or kids, and have requested mental health evaluations in the past.
Earlier today I posted this pic that was very "Wet Seal-esque" in its nature of letting custys know what's up with bad management. The pic was posted to reddit by a coworker with no information, but Ilia found the back story to the photo and it appears to have originated from a Hotel. Here is the story:
From Happyplace Someecards:
This very reasonable public resignation was left in lieu of a human at the front desk of a small hotel in a college town in California last night for any and all guests to see. It was posted online early this morning by the employee who came in afterwards to work the graveyard shift, redditor JordanAsshole, who, despite his name, he promises he's not the drunk assailant. It was posted with the title "My coworker went all Wet Seal on our boss today," a reference to the public resignation notices posted by mistreated Wet Seal workers in malls across the country.
Jordan (no need to use his full name) also gave more details regarding Drunky The Amazing Assaulting Coworker, who is currently wanted and at large after blowing his chance at having charges dropped by following up with threatening voicemails to the employee who quit.
All in all, this is shaping up to be a very bad week for the manager who declined to fire the troublesome employee. Jordan originally told reddit that he, too, planned to quit, and commenters advised him that in this economy (recovery notwithstanding), the hotel would have new workers within a week who were all unaware of what happened. Whether or not taking advice from people on the Internet is wise, it seems like this hotel (which was once part of a franchise, but no longer) is due for an imminent visit from the Department of Labor and OSHA (Jordan also says that employees don't receive the breaks they're entitled to by law).
That popcorn cart would leave, too, if it could. It needs to be freed!
(via redditor JordanAsshole)
Oh, and if you act now (or tonight on the graveyard shift), Jordan also says there's a popcorn cart in the lobby that's on wheels and for $40 he'll take a smoke break as you wheel out your buttery prize.
