In sharp contrast

I’ve spent the last hour sitting on a plane on the apron at Jo’burg airport while they attempt to disengage the bridge from the plane. Yes, one would have thought the manual override would take about ten minutes.

In related news (of incompetence) the jumpers are still to run.

    Vodka – the drink of the motherland. I sound like my/our father. Hope your plane took off.

    After two hours and various attempts at hydraulic repair they just threw cables around the wheels and dragged the bridge off the plane. Do you think they’ll try that first next time? I don’t.

    “Can I offer you a drink, Sir?”
    “Vodka on ice please.”
    “Just vodka on ice? No mixer?”
    “That’s right.”
    “How! You’re a real man, Sir, I’d invite you to a party.”

    Michelle asked if he was hitting on me …

    We’re having one next weekend – no vodka, just Pimms.

    I’d be there if I could – is that a birthday party then?
