Here’s a story for ya…
This picture was taken shortly before take off at Stansted, it’s me and Nudsy, we’re all off to celebrate Jaime Rubio‘s 40th in Mallorca. In the window chair is a dude who’s come straight from Koko’s in Camden to catch the morning flight. I don’t need to explain anymore!!
He stumbles across us wearing a scarf round his neck mumbling staring at his phone, sits down and tells us what he’s been up to and proceeds to wrap his scarf round his face. We’ll leave him there for a while whilst I set the picture.
As we all know when you fly (If you don’t I’m going to explain anyway), we have the robotic, depressing in flight safety announcements, the crew demonstrating where the exit signs are and how to use the safety equipment if the plane crashes, a terrible thought at the best of times, let alone when you’re sat on a plane that’s about to take off, I mean for anxiety its pretty shitty lol 😎
After about another 10 mins of general faff from everyone on the plane the female hostess Tracy wondered along our section checking we’re all good children and we had our seatbelt’s buckled and our pack lunches stowed away!
This process can take anywhere from 20 to 30 mins sometimes.
Upon arriving to our isle she looked us up and down to make sure all was as it should be; me and Nudsy had been very good boys and she smiled nicely at us and nodded!
She look’s at us and say’s “Is this with you?” whilst pointing at the dude.
we looked at each other and said “no”
I say to her “Do you want me to wake him”
She replies “Yes Please, that would be helpful”
I tap the dude and say “We’re Here”
Everyone starts laughing on the plane and helped take away some nerves maybe? Anyway, a lot of people have found this story funny so thought I’d share it with you!
