December 2012: At Wit's End
An attendant on a cross-country flight nervously announced:
“Attention passengers. I’m sorry, I don’t know how this happened, but we have 103 people aboard and only 40 dinners.” When the muttering died down, she continued. “Anyone who is kind enough to give up his meal will receive free drinks for the length of the flight.” Her next announcement came an hour later.
“If anyone wants to change his mind, we still have 29 dinners available!”
