Funny air hostess!

It was a late evening last flight from Chicago to Austin and it was just half-full (or half-empty... pessimists...phew!). Rare, but none boarding needed additional assistance or had kids accompanying them, so the boarding finished in less than 10 minutes. Unlike the usual person with the mic, the lady in this flight seemed to have a tremendous sense of humour. Since there were another 20 minutes or so before the flight would take off, she tried to perform some sort of a stand-up to entertain the passengers. She narrated a joke about a parrot which was funny (too lazy to type it out). She introduced the captain of the flight as Mr.Jack Sparrow. Also, she was quick with funny comments as she passed through the aisle.

The flight started to move towards the run way and that's when she took her position to demonstrate the safety tips. She went something like this, "Folks, during an emergency or if you don't like my jokes, there are 4 exits that you could take". There were many such fun bits during the flight. And when we landed in Austin, she said, "Welcome to Austin, folks! Outside temperature is 80F and looks like a very good friday night. The night is still young and I have 2 eligible single ladies in the crew who could enjoy a drink or two. If you would like some company, please see me when you exit the flight, we could work out a deal... but nothing less than 25$".

While exiting, I told her that she should try a stand-up sometime. She said, "Try? Those were the days in New York, real fun days. Have a good night sir. And, eh....ummm, if not 25$ how about 15$ (with a wink)". And I wish I had 15$....damn! ;)
