It wouldn't have been bad if you HAD been in a plane,  Slightly the same thing
happened with my father and I.

We were flying from Philadelphia to San Francisco on one of those huge four
engined planes.  Shortly after take-off we felt a huge rumbling.  The crackle
of the intercom came on, and the pilot said:

"Attention passengers, engine number one is experiencing some problems, so we
will be shutting her down.  We apologize for the inconvenience, but the flight
will now be a five and a half hour trip, instead of the usual five hours."

There was a mild groan from the passengers, but it was interrupted by the same

"Passengers, we again apologize, but enginge number two is now experiencing a
malfunction.  It too will have to be shut down.  The flight will now be a six
hour trip."

A louder groan, which was again disrupted by an even louder rumbling.

"Again, we apologize, engine three has burned out.  We will arrive in San
Fransisco eight hours from the take-off time."

Understandably, the people in the plane got fidgety, and my father said, "I
sure hope engine number four doesn't go down."

"Yeah," I said, "then we'll be up here forever."
