Here are a couple of funny excerpts from
holiday cards we received this year.
The first is from a friend of Elaine's who
works for Delta.
"Another major decision that was reached,
effective April 1st, is that I will be leaving Delta and
joining the masses at the unemployment office. With the airline industry
still floundering and Delta downsizing once again, I chose to hang up my
wings and take a severance package with 13 years of discounted airfare.
No, it's not a great package to receive after spending 13 years with a
company, but commuting to Cincinnati these past 2 years has taken it's
toll and it seems better than nothing. This was definitely a bittersweet
decision as I will miss flying very much. So now I'm just trying to
update my resume so that Flight Attendant, Swimsuit Model, Aerobics
Instructor, and College Cheerleader doesn't come across as too much
of a bimbo! I can only hope the person reading my resume is a 50+ year
The next excerpt is more of an overview of
how to get through the holidays.
"Well again the holiday season is upon us,
and with the joy of the
christmas sprit, chocolate confections and the selfless thought of
giving come the drudgery of in-laws and relatives. Stacie and I are
determined this year not to endure this sober. We have a bottle of
grey goose, jack daniels and spiced rum.
It's going to be a merry christmas."
