New Airline rules

Been busy lately! A friend had her baby and I spent some time with her eldest - what a treasure that little girl is!
Thought I'd share this little not so far off the mark joke about airline rules.

New Airline Rules

Attendant: "Welcome aboard, sir. May I see your ticket?"

Passenger: "Sure."

Attendant: "You're in seat 12B. That will be $5, please!"

Passenger: "What for?"

Attendant: "For telling you where to sit."

Passenger: "But I already knew where to sit."

Attendant: "Nevertheless, we are now charging a seat locator fee
of $5. It's the airline's new policy."

Passenger: "That's the craziest thing I ever heard. I won't pay

Attendant: "Sir, do you want a seat on this flight, or not?"

Passenger: "Yes, yes. All right, I'll pay. But the airline is
going to hear about this."

Attendant: "Thank you. My goodness, your carry-on bag looks
heavy. Would you like me to stow it in the overhead compartment for

Passenger: "Why not? Is he going to shoot me?"

Attendant: "No, but there's a $50 air-marshal hailing fee."

Passenger: "Oh, all right, here, take the $10. I can't believe

anything else I can do for you?"

Passenger: "Yes. It's stuffy in here, and my overhead fan

Attendant: "Your overhead fan is not broken, sir. Just insert
two quarters into the overhead coin slot for the first five minutes."

Passenger: "The airline is charging me for cabin air?"

Attendant: "Of course not, sir. Stagnant cabin air is provided
free of charge. It's the circulating air that costs 50 cents."

Passenger: "I don't have any quarters. Can you make change for

Attendant: "Certainly, sir! Here you go!"

Passenger: "But you've given me only three quarters for my

Attendant: "Yes, there's a change making fee of 25 cents."

Passenger: "For cryin' out loud. All I have left is a lousy
