Isn't it time to turn back?

Recommended Posts

We were flying along when one of my passengers made several looks at her watch.  I asked her if she needed to be somewhere at a specific time?  She said with a straight face.  "No but isn't it time for us to turn around and head back?"

With my best straight face I replied...  "I was thinking the same thing but my ground team is just up ahead a few miles.  If I turn around now I am going to have to make them drive all the way back as well so I think we will just land up here where they are."

She was perfectly happy with that answer.

My back up answer was,  "My reverse is broke!"
