while boarding my flight last night...
man: i left my cell phone in the waiting area. can i get off the plane to look for it?
flight attendant 1: no, but we can have someone look for it. what does it look like? where is it?
[man goes into complicated description of where it is]
flight attendant 2: didn't you get the memo?
flight attendant 1: what memo?
flight attendant 2: a memo came a few weeks ago that said people can get off the plane if they forgot something.
flight attendant 1: doesn't that seem dangerous?
flight attendant 2: yes. they can leave their luggage and get off the plane. who knows what's in their luggage. a bomb, perhaps?
flight attendant 1: but i guess it's ok if the memo says it is.
flight attendant 2 (to man): you can get off the plane.
