I was flying from San Francisco to Los Angeles. By the time we took off, there had been a 45-minute....

Not what it seems

I was flying from San Francisco to Los Angeles. By the time we took off, there had been a 45-minute delay and everybody on board was ticked. Unexpectedly, we stopped in Sacramento on the way. The flight attendant explained that there would be another 45-minute delay, and if we wanted to get off the aircraft, we would re-board in thirty minutes.

Everybody got off the plane except one gentleman who was blind. I noticed him as I walked by and could tell he had flown before because his Seeing Eye dog lay quietly underneath the seat in front of him throughout the entire flight. I could also tell he had flown this very flight before because the pilot approached him and, calling him by his name, said, “Keith, we’re in Sacramento for almost an hour. Would you like to get off and stretch your legs?”

Keith replied, “No, thanks, but maybe my dog would like to stretch his legs! Would you take him for me, please?”

Now picture this: All the passengers in the gate area were completely shocked to see the pilot walking off the plane with a Seeing Eye dog. The pilot was even wearing sunglasses that day.

The passengers scattered, not only trying to change the plane but also the airline!

Perfect deal

A man was reading the paper when an ad caught his eye. It loudly announced: “New $500 Porsche.”

The man thought that it was very unusual to sell a Porsche for $500, and he thought it might be a joke, but he said to himself, “It’s worth a shot.”

So he went to the lady’s house who was selling the car and she led him into the garage.

Sure enough, there was an almost brand new Porsche.

“Wow!” the man said, “Can I take it for a test drive?”

“Sure,” answered the lady.

Unlike what he had expected, the man found that the car ran perfectly.

When he got back to the lady’s house, he asked her, “Why are you selling me this great Porsche for only $500?”

Then the lady replied with a laugh, “My husband just ran off with his secretary, and he told me, ‘You can have the house and the furniture, just sell my Porsche and send me the money.’”
