File this one under things aren’t always what they seem…

WALKING THE DOG
A man was flying from Seattle to San Francisco.  Unexpectedly, the plane was diverted to Sacramento along the way. The flight attendant explained that there would be a delay, and if the passengers wanted to get off the aircraft the plane would re-board
in 50 minutes.

Everybody got off the plane except one lady who was blind. The man had noticed her as he walked by and could tell the lady was blind because her Seeing Eye dog lay quietly underneath the seats in front of her throughout the entire flight.  He could also tell she had flown this very flight before because the pilot approached her, and calling her by name, said, ‘Kathy, we are in Sacramento for almost
an hour. Would you like to get off and stretch your legs?’
The blind lady replied, ‘No thanks, but maybe Buddy would like to stretch his legs.’

Picture this:
All the people in the gate area came to a complete standstill when they looked up and saw the pilot walk off the plane with a Seeing Eye dog! The pilot was even wearing sunglasses.  People scattered. They not only tried to change planes, but they were trying to change airlines!

True story.. Have a great day and remember… Things are not always what they seem!

    This is great! I love it! How ignorant people can be. How sad. Excellent story!!! I’d have smiled if I’d been there in person. And thanks to the pilot for ‘going the extra mile’ to help out a passenger!?

    Oh that is too much! It only shows how many people that actually have 20/20 is more blinded by their eyes seeing then their brains. I could only imagine the people looks. How priceless! If I was there in person I would be laughing maybe ask the pilot who’s better in flying as a joke. LOL…

    An airline pilot, I heard this story back in the ’80s. It told of a stopover on a very hot day and a seeing-eye dog was in the cargo hold at risk of heat exhaustion. The flight engineer, needing to do his preflight “walkaround” anyway, took pity on the dog and had it removed from the cargo hold so it could accompany him as he walked around the airplane. But someone in the terminal saw it and the rest was history. Or was it legend? You decide.

GOT SOMETHING TO SAY?
