An airline pilot wrote that on this particular flight he had hammered his ship into the runway really hard. The airline had a policy, which required the first officer to stand at the door while the passengers exited, give a smile, and a " Thanks for flying xyz airline." He said that in light of his bad landing, he had a hard time looking the passengers in the eye, thinking that someone would have a smart comment. Finally everyone had gotten off except for this little old lady walking along slowly with a cane. He'd managed to get by with no sarcastic comments. Whew! Then she said, " Sonny, mind if i ask you a question?" " Why no Ma'am, what is it?" " Did we land or were we shot down?"
