The pre-flight instructions that are usually bland and routine were loaded with jokes and puns. "If you don't like our service, there are six exits located throughout the plane." "When traveling with a child, our your mask on first. If you are traveling with two children, choose the one with the most potential."
People chuckled in response, and it grabbed my attention more than any other previous instructions ever have. There was definite flavor in its informality, but I'm not sure what the goal was, and whether it was completely appropriate. Regardless, the wit was present in both of my flights today. It was an interesting approach to an otherwise banal commentary. I guess it was a unique approach. And as the flight attendant claimed when we were preparing to get baggage from the overhead bins, "shift happens."
