There’s nothing in the world like traveling by plane during one of the busiest travel times of the year. In a country paranoid about security. With airlines that are half a step away from (or already in) bankruptcy. Yes sir, exciting times.
Especially if you’ve boarded the plane, everyone has settled in and you don’t move. After a while someone gets on the intercom and announces, “We’re sorry for the delay but we can’t find the pilots for this plane.” OK, WTF? Are you saying you lost the pilots? Misplaced them? Are you not sure which bar they are at getting drunk and snorting cocaine in? Did you forget to collect their cell phone numbers for emergencies?
It’s bad enough I have to pay extra for the crappy food these days (I can’t wait to get charged for sodas) but now you can’t even reliably schedule someone to fly me to where I paid you to take me.
Anyways, true story. They lost the pilots. Eventually they found someone to pilot us but I don’t know if they were the regularly scheduled pilots or someone they picked up from the set of Airplane. Yar. Strange days here we are.2 Comments | Catergorized: life
