I realize this is kind of random, but for some reason I found myself thinking about airline pilots the other day. And thus was born a brand new What If –
1) We would basically be stuck all day long in a big room with screaming children and rude adults (not so different) -- but we would have the luxury of closing a door between us and them.
2) If we didn't like the way a parent conference was going, we could feel secure in knowing that parachutes were available to bail out at any time.
3) We could deal with bad altitudes, rather than bad attitudes.
4) We would pass out peanuts and work on an airplane, as opposed to taking away airplanes and working for peanuts.
As always, further suggestions are welcome.
