Things Are Not Always As They Appear

Blind Pilot

A friend of mine recently sent me this great story which reminds us that things are never quite as they appear sometimes!! Thanks Nancy!!

A woman was flying from Seattle to San Francisco. Unexpectedly, the plane was diverted to Sacramento along the way.

The flight attendant explained that there would be a delay, and if the passengers wanted to get off the aircraft the plane would re-board in 50 minutes…

Everybody got off the plane except one lady who was blind…

A man had noticed her as he walked by and could tell the lady was blind because her guide dog lay quietly underneath the seats in front of her throughout the entire flight… He could also tell she had flown this very flight before because the pilot approached her, and calling her by name, said, “Kathy, we are in Sacramento for almost an hour, would you like to get off and stretch your legs?”

The blind lady said, “No thanks, but maybe Buddy would like to stretch his legs.”

All the people in the gate area came to a complete stand still when they looked up and saw the pilot walk off the plane with a guide dog for the blind! Even worse, the pilot was wearing sunglasses!

People scattered. They not only tried to change planes, but they were trying to change airlines!

1. Things are not always as they appear, and,

2. A day without laughter is a day wasted.


  1. Reblogged this on Journey Into Me and commented:
    I had to share this story, it made me laugh and got me thinking. As the titles says, things are not always as they appear, we only see an image not their story. Beware of appearance, man dressed in a three piece suit doesn’t always have money, and a millionaire in many cases wears jeans and a T-shirt, being wise not to flaunt what he has.


  2. Yes things are not always how they appear. If people could only learn how to communicate. Obviously this story is humorous. I cannot believe people would be so stupid. I experienced circumstances in my life where people make assumptions. If one would only communicate!!!!
