AN Australian woman thought she was cactus when a hostie got her back up over some classic Aussie slang during a flight in the US.
"Fair dinkum," NSW woman Sophie Reynolds muttered when told by a air hostess that there were no pretzels for her to snack on.
The next thing Reynolds knew, the flight crew had demanded her passport to note down her details, telling her that swearing at attendants was a crime.
The 41-year-old, who lives in Queanbeyan, near Canberra, was stunned to find three uniformed officers waiting for her when she left the flight in the city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
"They said: `You swore at the hostess and there are federal rules against that'," Reynolds told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
"And I said: `I did not swear at the hostess, I just said `fair dinkum'."
