STRANGE BUT TRUE

Central Telegraph - - NEWS | THANK GOD IT’S FRIDAY -

TIME can re­ally drag on when you’re stuck 30,000 feet in the air with hun­dreds of strangers.

But lucky for th­ese pas­sen­gers, they had a quick-think­ing flight at­ten­dant.

To pass the time on a four-hour flight from North Carolina to Colorado, the crew on board a South­west Air­lines flight came up with a clever way to help the time pass — and got every­one in­volved.

They di­vided the pas­sen­gers into two teams, ac­cord­ing to which side of the plane they were on, and held a “toi­let pa­per race”.

The aim of the game was to see which side of the plane could un­ravel a toi­let pa­per roll down the length of the cabin the quick­est.

The win­ning side re­port­edly got to de­plane first.

Mar­cie Vil­lar­real, who said she was on the win­ning side, took a video of the mid-flight race and posted it to Face­book.

“I’ve been fly­ing dif­fer­ent air­lines my whole life, and just when I think I’ve seen it all, your flight at­ten­dants de­cide to do a ‘toi­let pa­per race’.

“Hands down the funnest flight ever,” she wrote.
