A man has an hour to wait before his flight to Los Angeles. He decides to kill some time at the airport bar.
He walks in and sits down next to a clearly nervous guy, who has three empty whiskey glasses in front of him. The man introduces himself to the nervous guy, and buys him a drink.
The man asks, “Nervous about flying?”
The nervous guy replies, “N-n-nervous? I’m t-terrified. I j-just know the p-plane is g-going t-to crash and we’re g-going to d-die.”
“Is this your first time flying?”
“N-no, I fly c-cross-c-country all the t-time. It’s m-my job.”
“Why don’t you just ask your boss if you can drive cross-country?”
“H-he would never l-let me do that”
“Why not?” asks the man.
The nervous guy replies, “B-because, I’m the p-pilot.”.
