    I dont want to compete with Ditter, but this is funny.

    WALKING THE DOG

    A WOMAN was flying from Melbourne to Brisbane ...
    Unexpectedly, the plane was diverted to Sydney
    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. A man had noticed her as he walked by and
    Could tell the lady was blind because her Guide
    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 by
    Name, said, 'Kathy, we are in Sydney for almost
    An hour. Would you like to get off and stretch your legs?'
    The blind lady replied, 'No thanks, but maybe Buddy 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 Guide dog! The pilot was even wearing sunglasses.. .
    People scattered.

    They not only tried to change planes, but they were trying to change
    airlines!

    Since you conceded the gold medal to Ditter, you surely deserve a silver medal for this one, keep training!

    Yes, it's funny and it's sad too. I used to use this story when I was teaching. I gave the ending with the pilot walking out with the dog first & asked the class what they would do in that situation. It always generated a lot of discussion. It's a great lesson on making an assumption/decision before you have all the information.
