Walking The Dog


A woman was flying from Seattle to San Francisco. Unexpectedly, the plane was diverted to Sacramento. 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 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 said "No thanks, but maybe Buddy would like to stretch his legs".

Picture this: All the people in the gate area came to a compete 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.

Note: This is a joke; it is not a true story.

Mr. Stupid said...

OMG. This was very funny. Glad its just a joke. I wonder what all the passengers were thinking... LOL
Have a good day!:)

Oz Girl said...

Funny how the brain plays tricks... at first I thought your post said "This is not a joke; it is a true story." LOL

And yes, that picture is definitely weird!!

(I never woulda thunk it, but the bird book seems to be the most popular item so far in my giveaway... I do know that I love my copy!)

Ms. Anthropy said...

Ha! I got this one in an email, but great to read it again.

Ronda Laveen said...

This is so funny! Sounds like she had the last laugh.

Brosreview said...

Really weird!

Shadowthorne @ Ramzu Zahini said...

I was wondering about the picture.

Now I know it goes with a joke...

I am trying to laugh here. Ha ha ha. (mechanically)

Not your fault, lady dearest. I have a more morbid sense of fun. :)

Shanel said...

Brian Miller said...

The Urban Cowboy said...

Mama Zen said...

How funny!

blueviolet said...

That would be funny to see the reactions!!!

Jeanie said...

I'm sure I would have done a double-take (if it was true). Very funny.

DJan said...

I hadn't heard this joke before, so it was a good one! And well put together too, I might add.

Sassy Pants Freckle Face said...

Odd!!?!?
Happy Sunday!

James said...

Too funny! :)

Julie said...

Funny! That would be an awkward situation, wouldn't it? Thank goodness it's just a joke. On the other hand, it would be hilarious to see the reactions. I love the picture, too!

Kristina P. said...

Haha. That would be freaky!

And that picture reminds me of my neighbor. I posted this a long time ago, but she "walks" her dog outside her car window. She drives around and the dog runs beside her.

lisleman said...

good story!
until I read one of the comments I was going to give you credit as author.
Maybe I should post some favorite old jokes from my friend.

Vicky said...

Oh that is a good one! I hadn't heard it before... and I would have taken it for true I am afraid... joke is on me!

LL Cool Joe said...

Nice one!

I was working once as a nurse, and the patient had a bunch of beer bottles everywhere. So I gathered them up to throw them out. Just then, of course, my boss comes around the corner for a surprise visit.
"Wait, wait - they are not mine!" didn't matter.
Perception is 9/10th 's of the "law."
That is a true story!

Shrinky said...

Haaaaaaaaaaa, too funny, because it's quite believable, too.

I just LOVE that photo..

Everyday Goddess said...

seeing eye dog in one hand and a fifth in the other?

Cheryl said...

I can only imagine what I would have thought if I had been standing there in the terminal!

Kathy M. said...

What a great story! And the photo, too. It seems to demand an explanation! Hugs.

Maggie said...

LOL! You got me! Good one techno!

Robert the Skeptic said...

I once saw a Jimmy Kimmel comedy sketch where he and another comedian, dressed as pilots, were acting like they were getting drunk at an airport lounge. It was pretty funny.

Fact often follows fiction, though - a pilot and co-pilot were arrested for intoxication and removed from the cockpit of a plane in Florida before departure. True!

Unknown Mami said...

Very funny! I wish it was a true story.

deb said...

you were right, I did need to clear my head and went on a hike just before sunset . It was fabulous.
and I also mulled over some things re my past , and got to a place of peace on some things.

terri said...

I did a double take at the end there... I read the last line wrong the first time through. I thought it said, "This is NOT a joke; it is a true story."

Funny,either way!

Hilary said...

Good one! :)

jozien said...

:) you are writing some deep stuff here. I am learning, that my 'pilot' is not blind either.
And i love the poem at the last post! 'so long sugar' i love that ending.

Bernie said...

I believed you up until the the blind pilot line....good stuff........Hugs

Juli Ryan said...

Yeah, just like Unknown Mami wrote. I wish this *was* a true story. xo's

Robynn's Ravings said...

Just popped into your hubbies place and I'm blown away. What a great creative duo you two make. Mm.mm.mm.

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

That is hysterical! :)

Kazzy said...

LOL Love the joke and LOVE the picture!

Scarlet Blue said...

I'm sure it is true! Or it will be one day.
Sx

Syd said...

Good one! I liked that.

otin said...

A very cute story! Did you think of it?

secret agent woman said...

I've often thought that if I could ever get a handicapped hang tag for my car, I'd love to get out of the driver's seat with dark glasses and a white cane.

Okie said...

lol...fabulous story.

Cinner said...

Ha, maybe that is what I need for my dog. It does make for a great pic. hilarious.

Land of shimp said...

Such fun to imagine, though!

"It's all done by computer these days, anyway." He could have said, by way of reassurance ;-)

Also I let out a yelp when I saw the picture, and was so greatly relieved "Ah, just a blind pilot."

Sniffles and Smiles said...

Well, it may not be true, but it is hilarious! Loved it! Thanks for making my Monday just a little bit brighter! ~Janine XO

Joanna Jenkins said...

LOVE that photo! I'd love to know the story behind that one.

And a pilot with a seeing eye dog would definitely give me pause ;-)

Have a great week,
jj

Indrani said...

For a sec I held my breath, can this be true?!
Thank you for the last line. and a good laugh. :)

heartinsanfrancisco said...

What a wonderful story! Now if the dog was wearing goggles like Snoopy, the World War I flying ace, it would be a nice detail. You tell the best stories!!

The Absence of Alternatives said...

LOL! But Lieutenant Geordi La Forge IS a great pilot! :-)

Did you read about the news that a blind passenger was left on United after everybody got off the plane? She was locked up in an empty plane? Unbelievable.

Eileen said...

Love the picture! Love the post!
