|Are you aware that, according to several studies, women workers
are often "better equipped" to defuse potentially violent situations in the
No one knows exactly why this is so, but several authors suggest that perhaps
it is that women's smaller size and softer voices make them seem less threatening, thus
allowing the level of anxiety to decrease and de-escalating the situation.
Messages from Flight Attendants
|"Our seat belts work just like every other seat belt, and if you
don't know how to operate one, you shouldn't be out in public unsupervised.
In the event of a sudden loss of cabin pressure, margarine cups will descend from the ceiling. Stop screaming, grab the mask and pull it over your face.
If you have a small child travelling with you, secure your mask before assisting with theirs. If you are travelling with more than one small child . . . pick your favorite."
|"Last one off the plane has to clean it!"
"As you exit the plane, make sure to gather all your belongings. Anything left behind will be distributed evenly among the flight attendants. Please do not leave children or spouses."
"Should the cabin lose pressure, oxygen masks will drop from the overhead area. Pleace place the bag over your own mouth and nose before assisting children or other adults who are acting like children."
Most Men Just Don't 'Get' This One!
|A woman and her daughter spent the day shopping together for the perfect
dress for her to wear as mother-of-the bride at the daughter's wedding next month. They
had wonderful luck and emerged from the day ecstatic over the purchase, having found
"the perfect dress".
The next weekend the daughter visited her dad and the woman he was dating (who was, of course, considerably younger than her mother). She was appalled when her father's girlfriend showed her the dress she was planning to wear to the wedding. It was identical to the one they had just bought for her mother!
The daughter tells the girlfriend what has happened and asks her to return it to the store and choose something else. "I certainly will NOT", the girlfriend replied, "I look absolutely stunning in this dress...it shows off my fabulous figure and the color accentuates my suntan perfectly. No way am I taking it back!"
Heartsick, the daughter broke the bad news to her mother, who responded, "No problem, honey, I'll wear something else. This will be the most special day of your life, and I want it to be absolutely perfect for you."
"Mom, you're the greatest . . . so understanding and supportive. I sure hope you don't have any trouble getting a refund on the dress."
"Oh, I'm not returning the dress", the mother answered. "I'll just wear it to the rehearsal dinner!"
You Can't Fool Mother Nature
|Brian Hester invited his mother over for dinner at his new apartment.
During the course of the meal, Brian's mother couldn't help but keep noticing how
beautiful Brian's roommate, Stephanie, was. Mrs. Hester had long been suspicious about the
nature of the relationship between Brian and Stephanie, and this had only made her more
Over the course of the evening, while watching the two react, Mrs. Hester started to wonder if there was more between Brian and Stephanie, more than met the eye. Reading his mom's thoughts, Brian volunteered, "I know what you must be thinking, but I assure you Stephanie and I are just roommates."
About a week later, Stephanie came to Brian saying, "Ever since
your mother came to dinner, I've been unable to find my beautiful silver gravy ladle. You don't suppose she took it, do you?"
Brian said, "Well, I doubt it, but I'll send her an e-mail just to be
sure." So he sat down and wrote: Dear Mother, I'm not saying that you
"did" take the gravy ladle from the house, I'm not saying that you "did not" take the gravy ladle. But the fact remains that one has been missing ever since you were here for dinner.
Several days later, Brian received a letter from his mother that read: Dear Son, I'm not saying that you "do" sleep with Stephanie, and I'm not saying that you "do not" sleep with Stephanie. But the fact remains that if she was sleeping in her own bed, she would have found the gravy ladle by now.
|MORAL OF THE STORY: You can fool some of the people all of the time, all of the people some of the time, but you can NEVER fool your mother!|
