Memories of Abad airport

Memories of waiting at Ahmedabad Airport for the return flight to Dubai:

I cannot remember when I’ve LOLled so much, internally. What happened is, this time, I was first in line for the security check when they announced it. So, once it was finished, I went and sat down at a strategically located seat where I could observe the mannerisms of people walking in for the check. So, what did I notice?( BTW, I noted all these- I don’t have such a sharp memory) . Needless to add, they use the manual metal detectors at Abad.

- One guy’s cellphone began ringing and it was not just a ringtone, it was a whole Hindi song. He was so nervous he couldn’t switch it off. Finally, the security guy let him off.

- Another guy walked from 5 feet back with his hands raised at 90 degrees- you know, the way a bird flies- it looked like he was going to make a landing on the security guy’s head

- There was this extremely obese guy, wearing a sweater. And, the detector went beep beep at his midriff. So, the security guy had to raise the sweater. The shirt came up too and he was ‘exposed’ to a huge hairy navel. (The belt buckle was causing the detector to go off). After this shock, the security guy did not check for beeps on anyone else’s midriff.

- Another guy and his wife went through the security (Respective points) and then the guy asked his wife’ Kaain bhooli to nathi gayi ne ghare?’(Are you sure you did not forget anything at home?)- sounds funny when you hear it- how could you think of what’s forgotten, at this stage when you’re about to board the flight?

- Then, this Uncle came in for the check, and he walked in sideways, for some reason. And, kept standing thusly, nearly poking his fingers into the security guy’s eye. So, he was told to turn around.

- Another was probably going on his first flight, and, when the security guy asked a simple question, he began ‘ You see, I’m going to Dubai, my family’s in Ahmedabad, I’ve got a job offer…..’, and, he would have explained his whole life to the guy if he hadn’t pushed him off and said ‘Next’.

- This disabled guy came on a wheel-chair, and he was made to get up for a few moments to do the check, which he did-painfully so, I thought. And, what turned up? A cigarette lighter. The guy sternly asked’ What’s this?’. And, he coolly replies- ‘lighter, for my beedi’. (Naturally, it was confiscated- but, I wonder how he ever imagined that he could carry a lighter on board?

In fact, the smartest of the lot to be checked in was this less than ten year old guy, who coolly walked in, smiled at the s. guy, got a smile back, and was finished with the check in half a minute.
Before the security check also, there was quite a few comic scenes. Like, this guy forgetting his sweater outside somewhere, and his wife giving him a few good words before going outside herself to find it. (She did find it, btw)
And, this guy trying to get in line in a hurry and dropping tomato sauce right on the floor in the line, so we all had to jump over it.
Joke for the day: (I’m not sure-this might be a repeat, so, there’re two jokes this time):
Before marriage....

He: Yes. At last. It was so hard to wait. She: Do you want me to leave? He: No! Don't even think about it. She: Do you love me? He: Of course! Over and over! She: Have you ever cheated on me? He: No! Why are you even asking? She: Will you kiss me? He: Every chance I get. She: Will you hit me? He: Are you crazy! I'm not that kind of person! She: Can I trust you? He: Yes. She: Darling!

After marriage.... Simply read from bottom to top.
The masochist begged the sadist, "Beat me! Whip me! Toss me around like a paper doll!" The sadist quietly replied, "No."
A man was admitted to the hospital suffering from prem*ture ej*culation. The doctors said it was touch and go.


Till next time,keep smiling.

Great descriptions.
I'm surprised a queue formed at all, Abadis are famous for butting in and "main jahan khada rehta hoon line wahan sey shuru hoti hain.."
