An elderly gentleman was traveling to Montreal through Houston, Texas. When his plane arrived in Houston, he grabbed his carry-on suitcase (or what to him looked like his suitcase) and rushed to make a connecting flight. The airport in Houston is big and hard to navigate, so the elderly gentleman was happy to reach his next airplane on time. He boarded the plane and started placing his suitcase in the overhead bin. A flight attendant approached him to help him with the suitcase and saw that it had a huge label saying “Crew” on it.
“I’m sorry, sir,” she said. “Are you a member of the crew?”
“No, of course not,” the elderly gentleman responded.
“Then how come you have a suitcase that says “Crew” on it?”
“Oh my goodness!” the gentleman exclaimed. “I must have grabbed it by mistake, instead of my own. It looks just like my suitcase, and my eye-sight is not as good as it used to be. What shall I do now? My suitcase contains gifts for my grandchildren and my wife’s things. She will now divorce me!”
“This suitcase looks very familiar,” the flight attendant said. “Hey, Lindsay, some here! Isn’t this your suitcase?”
The second flight attendant approached and immediately recognized her suitcase. “Oh, I’m so happy you haven’t disappeared with it,” she told the elderly passenger. “I will not be getting home until Friday, and my underwear is in this suitcase. What would I do without my underwear?”
“But wait,” the passenger said. “I’m glad you have your suitcase, but where is mine?”
“It seems that both your flights are on this very plane,” the flight attendant said. “So I guess your suitcase must be right here.”
Withing 30 seconds the elderly gentleman was reunited with his suitcase. I guess both he and the flight attendant were very lucky that he chanced to be flying twice in a row on the same plane.
I was happy that these nice people found their luggage but they kept discussing this lucky eventuality during the entire flight from Houston to Montreal and prevented me from taking a nap.
Now I’m finally in Montreal, though. Since readers mentioned that they enjoy photos of food, I promise to take pictures of every meal I have and post them here. Prepare to learn everything you ever wanted and more about food in Montreal and Ottawa.
