Airline Humor

Last night as I lay sleeping,
I died ... or so it seemed,
Then I went to heaven,
But only in my dream.

I was greeted by St. Peter,
Standing at the Pearly Gates,
He said, "I must check your record",
Please stand right here and wait.

He turned and said, " Your record ...
Is covered with terrible flaws".
On earth I see you rallied
For every losing cause.

I see that you drank alcohol
And smoked and partied too,
Fact is, you've done everything,
A good person should not do.

We can't have people like you here...
Your life was full of sin.
Then he read the last line of my record,
Took my hand and said, "Come in."

He led me to the Lord and said,
"We'll take him and treat him well,
He used to work for an Airline...

He's done his time in hell.

Remember: One person's hell is another's heaven. It's all about perspective. 

Enjoy the Journey!

  1. Ha! A lot of pilots will get a wry laugh out of this.

  2. Yes... sometimes we must laugh at our lives.

  3. I once met someone who asked me what my profession is. After responding, this person replied, "Are you currently an alcoholic? My sister teaches Special Education and it drove her to become one." I totally agree, it's all perspective.

    1. Lol. That is funny. Yes, Perspective could be our word of the week.
