Flying through the Midwest in the summer means one thing: turbulence.
I was working as a flight attendant on one particular flight when we hit a patch of very rough air just after a young teen on his first flight, had entered the bathroom.
After the bumps had subsided, he exited the bathroom, a look of sheer terror etched on his face.
"Are you all right?" I asked. "Don't worry, that turbulence was as bad as it gets."
"Oh! "So that's what it was," he said. "I thought I'd pushed the wrong button."

A teacher asked the class to name things that end with 'tor' that eat things.
1st little boy said, "Alligator."
The teacher said, "Very good, that's a big word."
2nd boy said, "Predator."
Teacher said, "Yes, that's another big word."
3rd boy said, "Vibrator, Miss."
After nearly falling off her chair, she said, "That's a big word, but it doesn't eat anything."
The reply was, "Well, my sister has one and she says it eats batteries!"
