Trip Report



Mach 2 – yipeeeeeeeeeeee


In the Cabin


But thankfully it still recorded the sound.


The Stewardess asked me

:-

What would you like  for your main course ?


I replied

:-

Errrrrrr ……. I’ve just had it ………


The Stewardess asked

:-

Fish cakes or the Guinea fowl ?


In a happy calm and relaxed voice I replied

:-

Naaa leave it ……..


With a smile the Stewardess said  

:-

So you don’t yeah ?  ………. that’s fine.


I replied

:-

I’m sorry I’m not being a pain …… but I’ve just had me dinner those sandwiches.


With a smile the Stewardess said

:-

That’s fine


She walked to the other passengers to ask them the same thin….. I’d never had this kind of service before as I’m more use to going to McDonalds or the chip shop, standing at the counter while the I get served, but having some one come up to you and ask you what you wanted to eat was a new and very posh  experience for me and I didn’t know what to do or how to react……


Because I earlier had the excellent chicken ceaser salad sandwich, I wasn’t hungry at all …. but I still felt bad about saying politely to the stewardess

:-

         No I’m not interested in eating any more food, but I simply wasn’t hungry.


I don’t like fish cakes and I didn’t know what guinea  fowl was ……… I thought

:-

Guinea fowl must be a posh name for roasted hamster, guinea pig or some thing which tasted foul but posh and rich people liked it coz it was “posh”.


Even if I was hungry there was no way I’m gonna eat that as seeing the caviar nearly made me vomit …… yuck ……. if I’d been hungry I would have asked for another chicken ceaser salad sandwich or a Mars bar.


A few minutes later I politely asked another stewardess

:-

Excuse me …….. would this be a good time for me to have my picture taken next to the mach meters  ?…….


Stewardess cheerfully replied

:-

Sorry ……


I said

:-

Would this be a good time to my picture taken next to those two mach meters at the end of the cabin ?


Stewardess cheerfully replied

:-

I’m sorry I don’t understand what you said …….


I pointed at the mach meters in the distance and I said

:-

You know those two meters …….which show speed,  temperature etc.


Stewardess cheerfully replied

:-

Yep … yep


I said

:-

Would this be a good time for me to have my picture taken now or errrr isn’t going to be later on ?


I don’t want to inconvenience you guys.


In a French English accent Martine Belle (Stewardess) cheerfully replied

:-

Well ….. you going to have your main course ?……….. its best to wait till the service has finished as where going to stay at that speed for quite some time so you have your pictures done later.
