Has the title tickled you? It’s related to part of the scene from movie serial “Pan Am” which I’ll tell you just about now.
“Pan Am” is a movie about Pan America airways that successfully became a pioneer to fly across the nations during the World War II, in early 1960’s. I won’t tell you the story in detail, just a bit part of the scene where situated Maggie Ryan (one of the stewardess) in her moment of having a flashback to her old life. Maggie used to work as a waitress back there. She was helping her mother in their family business. One day, one of their customers, which is a good friend of her mother, come by and leave with some pennies as the tips. Looking at that pennies, Maggie got a bit upset by saying “Really?! 3 cents?! After all the service I’ve given?”.
“What?! Would you like me to give you more bucks? Won’t that means I encourage you as a waitress? Is that what you think? Really? Cause, if so, I won’t give you any. I don’t want to encourage you, cause you can be better than just being a waitress. 15 years ago, I was driving a truck and your mother was pouring some Joe. And you know what’s funny with that?? Cause 15 years later, I’m still driving a truck and your mother still pouring some Joe. Do you wanna be like that?”
Maggie somehow lost her words and suddenly decides to go with him to chase a better destiny. And finally, she changed it, now she is serving some Joe but up in the air.
I hope this short story can inspire each of us. Well, everyone makes mistake but don’t make a stupid mistake by living someone else’s life.
Tscuuss.. Schoeneswochenende everyone..
