Having fun at the airport
Posted 06 July 2005 - 12:47 PM
Apparently, the man who was driving the cart momentarily forgot which pedal was the brake, and which one was the gas. You can see him getting out of the cart in the attached picture, which was taken approximately 10 minutes after the accident. For most of this 10 minutes, the poor driver just sat in the cart, with his hands still on the wheel. Thankfully, the family that was riding in the cart at the time was uninjured, and nobody walking in the terminal was hit, although many people just barely avoided getting run over.
In case you are wondering, I did what anyone would expect me to do in just such an emergency. I ran to the nearest store, and purchased a camera.

If Jack Bauer was ***, he would be called Chuck Norris.

Toledo, for example, is a hotbed for two-hand-touch football on the airline ramp during down times. It once led to this telephone exchange:
Me: "FAA, Toledo Tower."
Guy: "Hey tower, this is (someone) with Comair. We lost our football on the terminal roof. Can you see it from up there?"
Me: "Must have been a heckuva throw. Let me check...ah, yes, there it is. That's really close to our roof access door. I'll have one of our guys on break go get it for ya."
Guy: "Aww, thanks man! Have a good one!"
Me: "Have fun! Talk to ya later."
Obviously, the impression that our jobs are 100% stress-filled is a misnomer.

Luckily no one was hurt.

The demon code prevents me from declining a rock-off challenge.
