A Delta Airlines pilot was badly embarrassed about the a particularly rough landing. He was reluctantly fulfilling company policy that required the first officer to stand at the door while the passengers exited. Nevertheless he stood there and gave each person a smile, and said: 'Thanks for flying Delta.'
He had a hard time looking the passengers in the eye, awaiting that inevitable harsh comment on the landing, which by extension would impugn his professional skills and probably his manhood as well.
There were fewer smiles than normal, but no comments. Finally, everyone had gotten off except for this little old lady walking with a cane. She said, 'Sonny, mind if I ask you a question?'
'Why no M'am,' said the pilot, 'what is it?'
The little old lady said, 'Did we just land or were we shot down?'
This Lamp is Made from Starbucks Cups and scrap wood!
I melt down plastic cups from Starbucks to make the soft glowing panels in this Craftsman style table lamp. I also mill all the wood from old planks I pulled out of my 100 year old house when I remodeled it. And the lamps look awesome.
You really should buy one if only for the story!
