A passenger on a flight was recently offloaded for losing control of himself and behaving like a mad man. When asked by the judge what on earth possessed him to behave like this he said: Well, I was sitting next to this little old lady who got up and pulled out her bag from the overhead bin, then unzipped it, pulled out a smaller bag, zipped the larger bag, unzipped the smaller bag, took out a wallet, unzipped the wallet, after zipping up the smaller bag, then took out an earphone and zipped up the wallet and unzipped the smaller bag and replaced the wallet then zipped the bag and unzipped the larger bag, put it back and zipped it and then stood up and put the bag back in the bin.
Five minutes later she decided she needed her reading glasses so she brought down the bag again, unzipped the bag, pulled out the smaller bag, zipped the bigger bag, unzipped the smaller bag and then unzipped three other inner zips and zipped them back again after which she produced another case by unzipping the bigger bag and from it she took out her reading glasses and zipped the bag, then unzipped the larger bag to put back the smaller bag ,then zipped it up again, realized she did not want her ear buds so she unzipped...
Stop, yelled the judge, you are driving me insane.
You telling me, said the passenger.
