"Sir are those your nuts?" - flight attendant said to me. I CRACKED UP - right in front of client. How screwed am I?HF
Was on a (VERY IMPORTANT) flight today. Sat up first class with a client (C-level executive at F500). Don't worry about what my deal with the client was or what we were working on - just know that it is VERY IMPORTANT.
Anyways, prior to takeoff, I had a can of salted nuts out that I was eating (stayed up all night working and preparing - forgot to eat meals). The flight attendant doing the cross check came by and said "Sir, are those your nuts? You need to put your nuts away and fasten your seatbelt."
okay, please believe me on this next part as i need your help: I BURSTED OUT LAUGHING. I'm not talking about a soft snicker. I'm talking about: "BAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!" -type laughter. This went on for over a minute. And after 10 minutes, I still had random bursts of small laughter. My face was bright red.
Obviously the client, a very serious man in probably his 60s, was unimpressed. He joked, "heh, seems like someone's been leaking laughing gas in this cabin huh?" in an awkward way.
Anyways, during the flight we had a good talk but I'm now unsure if I totally screwed it up by making such an immature impression.
