Yesterday evening I flew back from Luxembourg. I was sitting in row 9, just behind that curtain that separates the business class from economy ( have you noticed that particular curtain costs about Euros 250.00, the difference between the 2 classes?? ). Clever person, of course I wasn't in business!!!
Anyway all through the flight this idiot in front of me constantly pulled the curtain, because it annoyed him to see it half open every time a steward or air hostess came to the back of the plane. It really pissed me off. So when once that guy pushed the curtain open, because he was looking for a steward, I looked him straight in the eye, smiled sarcastically, said: "Excuse me," and pulled the curtain again...Wanker!
Otherwise, perfect flight thank you. Have a nice dayeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee ( sorry the cat just ran over the keyboard )
An efficiency expert concluded his lecture with a note of caution. 'You need to be careful about trying these techniques at home. ' 'Why?' asked somebody from the audience. 'I watched my wife's routine at breakfast for years,' the expert explained. 'She made lots of trips between the refrigerator, stove, table and cabinets, often carrying a single item at a time. One day I told her, 'Honey, why don't you try carrying several things at once?'' 'Did it save time?' the guy in the audience asked. 'Actually, yes,' replied the expert. 'It used to take her 30 minutes to make breakfast. Now I do it in ten.'
