Overheard In NY. Where would I be without you? Maybe a few minutes of laughter less than the man I am today.
Here's an Overheard In NY post about some ghetto-assed flights:
Pilot: In just a few minutes our flight attendants will be starting beverage and snack service, including Coca Cola products and five snack options. Please listen carefully, as FAA regulations strictly prohibit our flight attendants from repeating these options.
--Incoming flight, LaGuardia
Flight attendant on intercom: Well, everybody, sorry for that delay -- the plane was late coming in from California. On the other hand, I have some good news: I just saved a bunch of money on my car insurance.
Gate attendant: We will be boarding this flight to Atlanta shortly, but this flight is overbooked. At this time, we're asking for two volunteers to... Damn, bitch!
Pilot on intercom: Ladies and gentlemen, we'd like to welcome you aboard and thank you for choosing, uh, JetBlue... This is JetBlue, right?
--JetBlue flight leaving JFK
Flight attendant: We want to thank you for flying with us today and remind you that there's no one who loves you or your money more than Delta.
Flight attendant on intercom: Please turn off your cell phones, pagers, iPods, laptops... Basically, anything that is bringing you joy right now, just turn it off.
Flight attendant on intercom after landing: Well, we're here.
