Mac Breedlove, a Texas teenager, thought he was going to get away with cutting in line to board a flight. The teenager quickly learned he was too big for his britches when he was forced to give a public apology.
Breedlove cut the early-boarding line on a Southwest Airlines flight as he and his lacrosse teammates made their way to a summer tournament.
His coaches caught his sneaky move and coordinated with the flight crew to make the teenager issue a public apology over the PA system, the New York Daily News reported.
"Oh come on!" Breedlove can be heard saying in video obtained by CBS News.
Although the teen lacrosse player attempted to get away with just saying, "I apologize," he was given a formal letter to read, expressing his true sorrow.
"During the boarding process, I took advantage of this airline's kindness," Breedlove read aloud. "I hope you will all find it in your hearts to forgive me, for I am just a young man that thinks I'm smarter than I am. Enjoy your flight, and remember to fly Southwest, because they let my coach do this to me."
The passengers aboard the flight did not seem to mind, as the entire cabin erupted in laughter and applause.
In an interview with ABC News, Breedlove said: "My coaches taught me a valuable lesson in life in a very creative way. Just be patient."
