Have you ever jumped to conclusions without knowing all the facts, only to regret it later on? Of course you have. We’ve all done it. But here’s a really tough way to learn.
John was told that a twin-engine plane would be waiting at the airport.
Arriving at the airport he spotted a plane warming up outside the hanger.
He jumped in, said ‘Lets go’.
The pilot taxied and took off.
Once in the air John told the pilot: ‘Fly low over the valley so I can take pictures of the fire on the hill’
Pilot : Why.?
John : Because I’m the photographer for a television show. I need to get some close up shots.
Pilot was strangely silent for a moment, then he stammered ‘So, what You’re telling me is . . . You’re not my flying instructor’?
The lesson? Always ask, never assume.
