The Landing

I could swear I heard the flight attendant make this announcement (in a normal, upbeat tone) right before our landing.

The Captain has turned on the fasten-seatbelt sign.

Please brace for landing. Please make sure your seats and tray tables are in the upright position and that all electronics are put away.

We are all going to die shortly.

I’ll blame what I heard on just waking up from a nap, and two screaming kids beating down on my eardrums.


  1. Southwest Airlines, right?

  2. Hahahaha, would have loved to see your face when you heard it. But it would be a cool gag if they really did. 🙂

  3. It was American Airlines 🙂

    Yes, I started listening closely once she said “brace”.

  4. Not to be terribly disgusting, but I would’ve needed a trip to the toilet after hearing that. 🙂

  5. @Andrew,

    It was an uneventful flight besides the screaming children behind me.

    The first leg of the flight though, the plane was wobbly right up to the landing. I even took the time to locate the barf bag just in case. Worst landing in quite a while.

  6. Gotta love those flights with the screaming kids behind you… so much fun!

  7. Heh, screaming kids, I know that …:)

  8. so i think i would have cried like a school girl.

  9. This is something anyone can appreciate. Thanks for a great read!
