The Great Continental Airline Fiasco

There is a saying that the only difference
between men and boys is the size of their toys. Well, boys love to
play with airplanes, so naturally boys masquerading as grown men
would find a big airplane even more fascinating. This is a story
about two airline mechanics who were unable to resist a trip to
the cockpit of an airplane they were servicing.
Have you ever awakened from a dream where you did something so colossally
stupid that you were sweating and scared out of your wits?
Then relief pours over you as you realize you were just dreaming
and now everything is okay after all?
Well, these two idiots weren't dreaming. They
actually did something so incredibly stupid they caused a million
dollars worth of damage. Thank goodness no one was hurt or this
story wouldn't be nearly as funny!
(PS - I doubt those gentlemen have a job there anymore!!!)
Another saying is that a picture is worth a
thousand words. I think after you see the pictures, no explanation
will be necessary or could possibly enhance the incredulous shock
that overcomes you!!
