Going anywhere on an Aeroplane is always an experience for me, especially if I happen to sit next to my father, the Candy-Man.
Don't get me wrong, I love my Dad's warped sense of humour but it somehow it seems to shine only when he travels by planes, rather Indian Airlines.

What He Does:
Airhostess Aunty (Indian Airlines, what did you expect?) comes with candy tray. My Dad puts his hand in and takes a fistful of Mint-o Fresh.

For What Joy:
Apparently, to see the look of absolute bewilderment on the Air-hostess' face. She obviously wouldn't have expected a guy like my dad to take a fistful, she can't get mad since she's been trained very strictly to smile at everything and at the end of it all, she doesn't quite know how to feel.

End Result:
As much as it's embarrassing, its really quite hilarious to see the look on the Air-hostess' face.
And the irony of it all, my dad is a diabetic.

Also Seen/Heard:
Co-passengers seen "tsk-tsking"/Staring/Frowning.
"Edho avanoda soththulerndhu na share edutha maadhri look-vidraan paren"^
Couldn't have put it better myself, dad.

What He Does:
If its a long flight, my father takes great joy in pressing the "call air-hostess" button.

For What Joy:
So that he can say "I think I pressed it by mistake, I'm sorry."
And smile.

End Result:
Air hostess clenches teeth and smiles. After she goes out of sight, he presses it again and asks for a coffee.

Also Seen/Heard:
"Auntijis, all of them, let them budge for a change. Besides, flight romba bore adikardhu, konjam entertainment venum-la"^
Auntyji airhostess wasn't the only one clenching her teeth, my mum was too.

My Appa rocks, I know.

On a closing note, He doesn't fly Indian anymore though, apparently the Aunty-ji air hostesses glare at him every time he boards. Chee.

"Edho avanoda soththulerndhu na share edutha maadhri look-vidraan paren" - That nut is looking at me as though I just stole a share of his property.

"romba" - very
"konjam" - a little
"venum-la" - required na?
