One of the other stewardesses said the following on tannoy

:-


           Cabin crew please be seated for landing…………………..


One of the stewardesses came over to an empty seat next to me (seat 26C) and asked me if it was ok for her to sit next to me while she sorted out her till,


I happily said

:-

           Fine, I’m honoured that you’ve sat next to me.


As she sat next to me she was trying to fix her till machine as it looked like she couldn’t get the receipt printer work.  While she was doing this we chatted about things like how did I find the flight etc.


I told her

:-

           This is the best best experience of my whole life and I’ve

          really had fun flying on Concorde


She was pleased for me and happily said

:-

            I’m glad you’ve had fun.


She asked

:-

           How did you get your ticket ?


           (I guess she heard about me).


I mentioned how my friends had helped to make the dream real in happy voice she said

:-

           You’re very lucky to have such good friends.


She was still having problems with making her till work, she said

:-

           Do you know how to fix it as it’s a computer ?


I replied

:-

           I’m sorry but I don’t know how to fix a till but I know how to

         fix desk top computers.


I felt bad about  not being able to help her but I didn’t know how to fix it so I had to be honest with her.
