"Sir are those your nuts?" - flight attendant said to me. I CRACKED UP - right in front of client. How screwed am I?

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.

That shit is funny, I don't care who you are. That old dude needs to grow up and stop taking himself so seriously. Yes, I called him immature.

I don't know shit about this, but I would have laughed out as well. That old man probably didn't hear the joke or something.

Lol you're fucked

I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

Hahahahahah. I laughed just reading the thread title. The old man was probably thinking 'fucking moron' but I think when he retells the story to someone else, oh and he will, that someone will correct and hopefully get him to give you the benefit of the doubt.

Funny shit though.

This made my day. Absolutely hilarious.

Haha I wouldn't have laughed out loud, but definitely laughed a bit at least. Genuinely funny instances are rare, but this is one.

LOL

LOOL!! yeah he might have taken it seriously on the spot but when he thinks about it later or retells the story he might end up in the hospital from laughter

funny - i'm sure it's fine... although I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt and assuming when you said 10 minutes you meant somewhere between 45-60 seconds, which would be slightly juvenille, but still acceptable. If it was really 10 minutes I think you're prolly screwed cause he thought you had just smoked a joint. That's what my guess would be.... 10 minutes?

I dont think he said he laughed for 10 minutes straight. You know when you remember something funny and you laugh, I'm guessing that's what happened. Fairly obvious I thought..

BAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA lookatmycock is an absolute comedic genius

TRUE STORY: The prospect asked me, "What's it like to work at ****?"
I asked him, "You ever been to Home Depot?"
"Yes"
"Well, it's like that. It's full of fucking tools." And he stared, innocently wide-eyed and nodded with deep understanding

The client may no longer be associated with your company, but you still are. And now you can tell the story without shamefully leaving out "I got fired the next week" at the end.

Good riddance. Homie had no sense of humor. If someone can't laugh at "sir, are those your nuts?" they're not someone I would want to be associated with.
