This is about my classmate Ben who always came 2nd or 3rd in class and scored the highest marks of us all. Although, once he left school, things changed a lot for him and he couldn’t settle in a job. He got a job as a bus driver but the end of job arrived when he detoured the whole bus, drove the bus all the way home.
He simply got out of the bus, went inside his home and calmly had a cup of coffee or tea (whichever suited his boat) and drove whenever he wanted to which was probably, half an hour later. He would have spent more time home but his wife was being fussy as usual. The company got furious and so angry when they found out about his tactics. They found it so unprofessional that his supervisor dismissed him on the spot at the same time.
The story about the Airline flight attendant in the following story is going to be similar to the one of Pete. But I bet you would chuckle just as much while reading this one, for sure.
This story comes all the way from a Stingem employee. “Welcome aboard Stingem Flight XXX to YYY. We’re pleased to let you all know that we have the best pilots in the industry. The finest and most talented of them all. Although, unfortunately, none of them are boarding the same flight as us.”
Then came the progression to the fasten your seatbelts routine. It went on as usual but what he said was: ‘To operate your seatbelt, insert the metal tab into the buckle, and pull tight. It works just like every other seatbelt, and if you don’t know how to operate one, you probably shouldn’t be out in public supervised. In the event of a sudden loss of cabin pressure, oxygen masks will descend from the ceiling. Stop screaming, grab the mask, and pull it over your face. If you have a small child travelling with you, secure your mask before assisting with theirs. If you are travelling with two or more small children, decide now which one you love the more.
The passengers all had a nervous chuckle because they didn’t know if he was being serious. Although, I bet some of them did choose their favorite kid as a fact.
The flight went on smoothly and it landed in due time. But as it was about to land, the pilot said, “As you exit the plane, make sure to gather all of your belongings. Anything left behind will be distributed evenly among the flight attendants”. That was enough to ensure that everyone took their bags with them. Although, some husbands still left their wives sleeping even after the flight landed.
After landing the plane, the final announcement of the air pilot was: ‘Thank you for flying with Stingem Airlines. We hope you enjoyed giving us the business as much as we enjoyed taking you for a ride.’
