trolley stunts forbidden

i can get that you might try the first one (although why anyone would attach a TV aerial to a scooter and then sit on their TV i don’t know).

but why would you try and balance one trolley on the shoulder of someone standing on another trolley ?  i see on that second picture the lower trolley driver has lost his window wiper, although his wing mirror still seems ok.

my comedy flight to warsaw

i had a good flight to warsaw (what seems like weeks ago now – in fact it was!).
at heathrow the pilot came on the intercom and said “well, we’re all on board, all the bags are loaded and we have a take off slot all confirmed, so we should be away on time. although, me saying that is usually the kiss of death. i’ll let you know if anything changes”
kiss of death !!! not what you want to hear from a pilot
a few minutes later he was back on “apologies, but one passenger has failed to turn up so we’ve got to unload his baggage. i told you it would be the kiss of death”
kiss of death !!! again !
the flight was fine, but just as we were in the last few seconds before touching down in Warsaw and everyone was in the ‘try not to look too worried’ mode, we suddenly accelerated like mad anf flew up in to the sky again. it was a bit of a shock.
apparently we had to abort our landing as a helicopter was in the way. fair enough, but a bit worrying at the time.

i was happy to stay in my seat on this plane rather than climb out and hold on to that handle

this lady doesn’t look like she’s too bothered about the fact she’s just set her lapel on fire.

anyone who’s had kids know that this is how you find out if your child needs a nappy-refresh. it’s a nice idea to get people to check their baby’s nappy before setting off as this is one of the key causes of baby plane travel missery. probably
