A couple of years ago I accidentally left my phone on and in my pocket during a flight. After we landed and I pulled out my phone I half expected to be tackled and beaten by TSA, but alas, no such luck.

Probably thought you'd turned it on after the plane landed (recent experience showed airlines allow cellphones to be fully active once you've landed).
Givien all the B.S. that the airlines give you about turning phones off and such, I had naively assumed that THEY knew I had it on the whole time and was intentionally messing with the operation of the plane. I can picture pilots sweating profusely and fighting the control stick the whole flight because some jackass in seat 9D didn't turn off his flip phone.
Give each other $10, put it on Underhill.
