My niece is a flight attendant with one of the major airlines.
She shared this story from one of her colleagues:


A man was flying from Seattle to San Francisco.

Unexpectedly, the plane was diverted to Sacramento along the way. The flight attendant explained that there would be a delay, and if the passengers wanted to get off the aircraft the plane would re-board in 50 minutes.

Everybody got off the plane except one lady who was blind. The man had noticed her as he walked by and could tell the lady was blind because her Seeing Eye dog lay quietly underneath the seats in front of her throughout the entire flight.

He could also tell she had flown this very flight before because the pilot approached her, and calling her name, said, "Kathy, we are in Sacramento for almost an hour. Would you like to get off and stretch your legs?

The blind lady replied, "No thanks, but maybe my dog would like to stretch his legs."

Picture this:

All the people in the gate area came to a complete standstill when they looked up and saw the pilot walk off the plane with a Seeing Eye dog!

The pilot was even wearing sunglasses. People scattered. They not only tried to change planes, but they were trying to change airlines!

Ha - good one!

Many years ago while on a business trip to New Orleans, I took a taxi from the airport to an apartment I had rented.

The taxi was one of those huge old things; there were doilies adorning the interior.

The driver seemed to be about 110 years old, and I noticed we seemed to be crawling along at a snail's pace. He was quite a talker, and I was at least entertained by his stories and in-depth knowledge of the area.

When I finally arrived (it seemed an eternity had passed) I asked the driver for a reciept. He began digging around in the glove compartment for his reciept book.

Then he exclaimed: "There's my glasses - I can't see a thing [/b]without them!" \:D
