TODAY'S LIFE LESSON
A Boeing 777 wide-body jetliner was lumbering along at 800 km/hour at 33000 feet
when a cocky F-17 fighter jet flashed by at Mach 2.
The F-17 pilot decided to show off. On his state of the art radio (that is part
of his state of the art 3-D & million dollar headset), the F-17 youngster told
the 777 pilot, “Hey Captain, watch this!”
He promptly went into a barrel roll, followed by a steep, unimaginable vertical
climb. He then finished as the F17 screamed down at impossible G’s before
leveling off at almost sea level.
The F-17 pilot asked the 777 pilot what he thought of that!
The 777 pilot said, “That was truly impressive, but watch this!”
The 777 chugged along for about 5 minutes at the steady 800 km/hour, and then
the 777 pilot came back on and said, “What did you think of that?”
Puzzled, the cocky F-17 pilot asked, “What did you do?”
The 777 pilot chuckled and said, "I stood up, stretched my legs, walked to the
back, went to the can to take a whiz, then got a cup of coffee and a cinnamon
roll and secured a date for the next 3 nights in a five star hotel with the lead
flight attendant paid for by the company."
LESSON OF LIFE: When you are young and foolish, speed and flash may seem like a
good thing! When you get older and smarter, comfort and dullness is not such a
bad thing! It's called S.O.S. (Slower, Older and Smarter!)
Dedicated to all my friends approaching the S.O.S. category...
