Do You Find This Funny?!?

I had a whole bunch of spring break kids on my flight the other day.  They were sitting in the couple of rows right in front of me.  I think it was a group of kids that were a part of something because they all knew each other and screaming (really...screaming...not just talking) to their friends that were sitting in other rows.  These were not young young kids neither...I think they must be in their junior or senior year of high school, but they acted like they were in elementary school.

I ignored all of their screaming across the plane, loud talking, loud laughing, really pointless conversations and their immature behaviors...I ignored all of that because I figured hey, they're on spring break, maybe they just acting up because they want to have fun...so whatevs right...

Then I was listening to this girl telling her story to all her group of friends in a bragging tone...She was talking about driving (I'm assuming she is a new driver).  She said she was driving with her mom in the passenger seat.  They were driving along and something caught her eyes on the side of the street...She said what it was but I forgot...anyways, something caught her eyes so she was looking at it but forgot to take her foot off the brakes.

So this whole time she now has her head turned sideways looking at this thing, but the car is still going straight and she is not looking at where she's going...She hears her mom screaming STOP and turned back around...She had ran the stoplight and the cars going across were now heading in their direction and if she keeps going, they would crash right into her car on her mom's side...

I listened in horror fearing the ending of this story...she goes on...She said she stopped then just in time and didn't crash with the other cars.  I thought Thank God!  She then said her mom was so scared and freaking out and...are you ready for this?.........

She thought it was the funniest thing in the world what had just happened! 

I was completely baffled!  WhY, Where, What, How, WhO in that whole story was funny?  Did I miss the funny part?  I would've been completely scared shitless!  Are you kidding me?  She said she started laughing in the car after it happened, and then her "buddies" started joking about what happened and all joined in on the "laughter".

I don't get it...When I have kids...They are gonna find this FUNNY?  If thats the case, they will never find out what a "car" is!

Probably didn't happen this way - just "big talk" to sound important in front of her buds. If it did, I'm certain that her mother has taken the keys from her grubby little paws ;-)
