If I wasn't nervous enough about flying as it was, when I went down to Tassie, they put me right next to the emergency exit. Thanks.
Hey guy with fear of flying, can you please be responsible for saving the lives of all your fellow passengers when the plane goes down? It's not a big deal, just pull this lever, break off this whole panel of the aeroplane, throw it out the window, and help everybody get out. You'll be right mate.
And then the same on the return flight as well! The other people in my row who were responsible had obviously heard it all before and zoned out during the stewardesses' (yikes, is that term un PC now?) tutorial, whereas I was memorising every word, and poring over the instruction sheet whilst trying not to have a panic attack.
