We’re Too Heavy!
“Ladies and Gentlemen, this is the Captain speaking. The reason we can't leave the gate is that the weather in Atlanta is bad and we've got to carry extra fuel in case we can't land there. Unfortunately, that means that we're 3,000 pounds overweight, so we need 13 volunteers to get down to a suitable weight.”
Now, I suppose that if me and the guy next too me volunteered, we might be close, but somehow I doubt it would be enough.
So, here I sit, on the airplane, surfing (can you believe the wireless at the airport reaches out to the plane!?), hoping for 13 kind souls to volunteer their seats.
