Overheard: Travel

On Sunday, I board my plane in Mexico. The plane attempts to leave. LOUD THUMP. JERK. STOP.

The plane hits the towing device after it malfunctions. This causes damage to front landing gear. Off the plane we go to load onto buses which take us back to terminal.

Passenger happily says to Pilot: "I guess we can say we have been in a plane crash now."

Pilot to Passenger: "That is not funny."

Oh geez, that must have been terrifying. Glad you are okay. Did you take another flight?
