The Australian phrase “fair dinkum” has landed Sophie Reynolds in trouble. She was on a SkyWest Airlines when she refused the snack crackers that were offered, asked for pretzels instead and was told there weren’t any. It was then that she uttered the immortal worlds - well immortal in the sense they were uttered by Crocodile Dundee
The crew asked for her passport and told her swearing at attendants was against the law. When the 41 year old got off the plane in Pittsburgh there were three uniformed police officers waiting for her to tell her about the federal rules prohibiting cursing at the flight crew. After a quick chat she wasn't charged and released.
