What it was like on Alaska Air #536

This guy tells what it was like on the flight that had to turn back to Seattle after depressurizing due to a hole in the fuselage caused by a ground worker who didn't tell anyone he had damaged the plane.

I would have flipped completely if I had been on that plane. It was bad enough on a flight a few years ago when an alarm went off and we had to turn back to Manchester, N.H., shortly after takeoff (turns out it was just a switch malfunction and nothing was wrong on the plane, but I was freaking out hugely).
