What would you do if everyone thought you had died?
You are on a plane to go home. The plane has trouble and has to land. You decide to see the sights while the plane is being fixed. You lose track of time, and miss the plane. You figure you will catch the next flight out. You then find out the plane crashes, and you are on the list of the dead passengers that were lost at sea. You were unhappy in your former life.
Would you phone home and let everyone know you are all right? Perhaps you could start a new life under an assumed name? Would you be happy in your new life?
What would you do? Please take the time to think about the scenario.
I wouldn't start a new life I might take some time for myself, then see how many people really missed me.
This would depend somewhat on where you are at the time.
Assuming that you are the average person with no underworld connections it would be very difficult to get something like a passport under a false name.
Then there is the problem that you are left with whatever is in your pocket with no access to bank accounts, etc.
So unless your life is really a mess and there are a lot of things you want to get away from the phone call home is your best option.
Perhaps you could get a job, if needed.
But what kind of job with no qualifications and no SS#, driver's license or other ID.
Disappearing taes a great deal of planning. Having it suddenly thrust upon you would be very difficult.
Well starting a new life could be tempting, but I could never allow my loved ones to worry or grieve for me unnecessarily. That is just too cruel for me to think about, and I think the act of a coward. If one is unhappy with their life and want to make a new one, they need to own up to it and face loved ones and give them the opportunity to say goodbye--then the person can go off and begin anew.
strange come across this question, as the answer to that with someone is about to surface.
Someone is doing that now assuming another identity however not for a good reason that is at all compassionate or spiritual.
I think it leaves a lot of lies and deceit and hurts not only the person hoaxing his death but the family so no matter who or how many people you tell your the one who has to live the life of lies and then suffer the consequences as the truth always prevails
The lies will live with you forever its like living on the run.
have a nice day
I would put on a makeup to make myself look pale and expressionless, and tail them in isolated places, such as a lonely car park, LOL. I will keep a safe distance, unless I know that person is very timid, in which case, I would touch him or her unexpectedly from behind, with cold hands that had been holding an ice pack or something.
The airplane scenario doesn't work. They keep boarding records. The airline would know you hadn't returned to the plane.
Setting that aside, though, I'm not at all sure what I'd do were I lost and mistakenly presumed deadI could figure out how to have a lot of fun with it, though. Imagine the looks on the faces when I show up at my own memorial service.
If the plane crashes, the records would be lost with it, no?
No. Boarding lists are not carried exclusively on the plane. Copies are kept in the records of the airport, the airline company, insurance companies and surveillance agencies. In addition, your cell phone tracks you. Nowhere to hide these days.
I will likely inform the authority that I am still alive. Rather than living in a life that no one knows, I am happy to meet my family and get reunited.

Two trains of thought are being bantered back and forth. Does a raising of the minimum wage create job loss and lower profits and more unemployment or does it increase disposable income thereby jump starting the economy and increasing hiring?
