an airline pilot wrote that on this particular flight he had hammered his ship n2 the runway really hard. the airline had a policy which required the 1st officer to stand at the door while the passengers exited, smile, & give them a "thanks 4 flying XYZ airline." he said that n light of his bad landing, he had a hard time looking the passengers n the eye, thinking that some1 would have a smart comment. finally every1 had gotten off except 4 this little old lady walking w a cane. she said, "sonny, mind f i ask u a ?" "y no ma'am," said the pilot, "what is it?" the little old lady said, "did we land or were we shot down?"
