This woman really, really wants to catch her flight

We've all had frustrating airport experiences. Be it an inconvenient flight delay or a surly TSA agent, there are plenty of factors that can add up to elevated blood pressure and a sense of anger. But most of us choose to deal with these feelings in a reasonable way.

The same can not be said for this Chinese woman who missed her flight at Hong Kong's international airport. She opted to react this way:

Now, my Cantonese is a little rusty, but I believe she is saying something along the lines of "I want to get on the plane."

Reuters reports that it's actually "I want to go in, I want to go in."

I had a similar reaction to the Detroit Tigers pitching staff's errorfest in the 2006 World Series, but didn't have the presence of mind to put the video evidence on YouTube.

Big mistake.

The video has garnered a downright silly 2,293,870 views since it was posted on Thursday.
