A friend of a guy in the Nutrition School at Tufts was one of the
lucky passengers onboard a Northwest Airlines flight to Boston
during our recent hurricane "Bob".
The captain did his best to skirt the edge of the storm, but it was a pretty
rough ride just the same - rough enough that the flight attendants were
ordered to strap themselves into their seats for about half an hour, and many
of the passengers were putting the little plastic-lined bags in their seat
pockets to good use.
When the turbulence finally abated, the flight attendants unbuckled themselves, and the captain's voice came on over the intercom.
"Well, folks, that was quite some ride, wasn't it?' But we came through it
. (after a short pause and several clicks)
"Jesus Christ - whadda bitchin' ride! Boy - I sure could use a cup of good strong coffee and a blow job, right about now"
As a stricken stewardess dashed up the aisle to the cabin to inform
the captain that his intercom was still on, one of the passengers
called after her, "Don't forget the coffee!"
