reason why I dont fly anymore


1. How do I know if the pilot has a drug or alcohol problem?

2.How do I know if the pilot is even a real pilot?

3. No more meals....just those damn peanuts.

4. What if the mechanic who checked the plane out is on drugs?

5. What if there is a terrorist on board? How will I know??????




Oh, I see ....I just have to check out the parking lot before I board.What was I thinking?????

much appreciate that this too you didn't post before i left..lol..

i was terrified of getting on that plane Catch..all your points were going through my head..but you forgot, mechanical error which would send the airplane into failure...oh, and turbulence...

Catch said...

Chana, I know exactly what you mean...it just might be easier to ride that damn camel instead of fly!

No cruise ships, no flying for me either catch!!
My mom and sisters are going to Florida for a week end of September. I will not fly, I told them to send me a postcard and I'll be a happy camper.
have a good day!

starbender said...

Ha!
U know, they make people wait all that time at Air-ports, they DON'T EVEN check the stuff in the bottom of planes..... Does that make ANY SENSE ?!?!?
Why even bother checking us? Is it just a visual thing?
:o

omg lol the camel.
i don't fly cus one day the plane will realise its heavyer then the air and just plain fall out of the sky

Pendullum said...

Geez... You are not allowed to bring a book on the plane or a magazine or even a newspaper...In case you have a bomb planted in any of these items...

All the terrorists were British born... Raised in England...
What the heck is that all about...Toubling times...

Tina Dray said...

have no desire to spend hours of my precious holiday time with nothing but an airport for a view when i can pack the tent jump in the car with my family and start straight it away.
i spy with only clouds to spy can become a bit of a bore

Gingers Mom said...

You are too much, Catch!

Jill said...

Love It! I've always loved planes and airports.Now the TSA wont let me watch anymore. So sad. There was a time when I wanted to be an airline pilot. Of course that was before women did that sort of thing. Sigh, Between the government and the "terrorists" I no longer have the desire to fly. Just one more fun thing taken away from me...

Lori's Minute said...

Maybe the camel got lost or has an identity crisis? Well, I got a chuckle out of it .

Remember, you are more likely to get into a car accident than an airplane diaster....

I know it does not really help but had to mention it...

Mimi said...

I do not think they even have the peanuts anymore since some person with an allergy 10 rows back could die. Crazy how some people are so allergic to them!

I am flying next week. And I am scared.

TC said...

I must admit, after 20 years of flying, it's not my favourite activity anymore.

Being in a metal tube that suddenly drops 100 feet due to air currents is not my idea of fun (yes, it happened to me).

Phats said...

Holy crap Catch! First cruises now planes, what's next?? I love to fly you get there twice as fast as driving and you don't have to do any work, just sit back and relax and fly the friendly skies.

I am glad one of your reasons wasn't snakes getting loose on the plane haha! :) hopefully you get that a reference to the new movie(although most people ahve seen with it being leaked all over the net)

I am flying in 2 weeks

boneman said...

Well, gosh! Now that I know that...

I still ain't going up.
Hey!
They won't let me wear m'parachute!

Betty said...

I guess I don't have to worry about flying anymore. Dr John doesn't think he can. We are moving so we don't have to drive so far.
That is a funny picture.

kristi said...

Catch you are on a roll trying to talk us all out of vacationing. Cruises and Planes....whats next woman????

Cars?

Dr.John said...

Shame, shame . That's called profiling. Just because he rode in on a camel doesn't mean he is a terorist. Despite all that you asked you are safer in a plane than in a car.

Shelli said...

roflmao.

Michelle said...

If I wasn't leery about flying before I sure am now! It's such a hassle anymore and I never enjoyed flying to begin with!

Catch said...

Old farts wife: sometimes a post card is good enough!
Starbender: hmm,,,I didnt know that...Ill probably never fly again now...lol
Blue: I do wonder how those heavy planes stay up!
Pendullum: no books or newspapers? What are you supposed to do while flying?? Look out the window and worry about crashing?

Tina: you go girlfriend!!!

Mimi: you will be fine...you will be up and down before you know it!

TC: eww...I hate those air pockets!

Phats: I want to see that movie...somehow I never considered a snake on the plane! lol

Boneman: A parachute would make me feel so much better!!!!

Betty: NOT FLYING would not be a problem for me..lol

Kristi: trains?

Dr John: I know...I just forget that when the plane takes off

Shelli: glad you liked it...lol

kristin: ill take that as a compliment....lol

Jill: amen to that! Thanks for visiting!!!

Lori: I know...but I have a hard time remembering it when I am high enough in the air to make my nosebleed.

Catch said...

Michelle: I was never a "relaxed" flyer....every noise I heard I wondered what it was..lol

:P fuzzbox said...

I would so settle for the peanuts. All I see is those shitty pretzels. Yuch.

Christine said...

You know what really scares me, are the 'lil tiny prop planes...I took one, and it felt like I was about to just fall out. I was hanging on for dear life. It's just as bad as finding out a doctor operated under the influence. It gets harder to trust anyone anymore!! Cute camel though!
