Air Travel Can Be Fun(ny)

PITTSBURGH -- On last night's flight, due to turbulence, we had to stay seated for quite a while. A woman got up anyway and spoke with the flight attendant who allowed her to use the bathroom. Then a young guy with an old boxer's nose (and who was fairly drunk) got up and tried to use the bathroom, and the flight attendant said no. In an attempt to be funny, he called her a racist. I assume he meant sexist. He continued to try to be funny every time he went up to the bathroom which was about every 20 minutes.

On our flight out, we had one of those Southwest flight attendants who aspires to be a stand-up comedian. Her shtick was great. It included something about instructions for emergencies -- if you're a Brown's fan, there's pictures.
