woman pilot humor: the box office

(The awesome thing about this is that my grandpa sent it to me)


As the airliner pushed back from the gate, the flight attendant gave us passengers the usual information regarding seat belts, etc.

Finally, she said, 'Now sit back and enjoy your trip while your captain, Judith Campbell, and crew take you safely to your destination.'

We were sitting in the eighth row and I thought to myself, 'Did I hear her right? Is the captain a woman?'

When the attendants came by with the drink cart, I asked 'Did I understand you right? Is the captain a woman?'

'Yes,' said the attendant, 'In fact, this entire crew is female.'

'My God,' I said, 'I'd better have two scotch and sodas. I don't know what to think with only women up there in the cockpit.'

'That's another thing sir,' said the attendant, 'We no longer call it the cock pit.'

'On this aircraft it's known as the Box office.'
