|Quoting TxAgKuwait (Thread starter):|
it would be nice to have her sing "Happy Birthday" to the company much the same way she sang to President Kennedy in a joint session of congress
BTW, if you go here the original Southwest employees still working for the company tell some funny stories about things that have happened over the years. These were my two favorites:
Linda Pinka, Flight Attendant
A drunken passenger passed out in the rear lavatory, and when we went to "rescue" him, he had his head in the toilet. We grabbed his hair to lift his head out of the toilet, only to end up with a handful of toupee that had been stained blue from the toilet water!
Deborah Stembridge, Flight Attendant
Recently, I was on a flight from Buffalo to Las Vegas, working in the back of the aircraft. I was checking the rear lavatory supplies and found a set of false teeth in the sink. I looked around thinking this had to be a joke, but everyone was seated, and no one was paying particular attention. I scooped the teeth up in a cup and walked through the cabin to the front galley where another original flight attendant, Sandra Bogan, was working. She thought it had to be a joke. By this time I had been holding the teeth for 20 minutes. I decided to walk slowly through the cabin and give a very big smile to everyone. By the time I got three-quarters of the way through the aircraft, a man jumped up and ran to the back. I had him.
Unfortunately, that hasn't been the only set of teeth I've found over the years!
Re: Marilyn Monroe singing "Happy Birthday" Can you imagine Elthel Merman singing this?
