This is ground control to Major Gaffe
Plane glides to earth and as we roll toward the gate the pilot gives us leave to turn on our electronics and I happily turn on my shiny new iPhone to check my notes on where I left my car, put my earbuds in and queue up Aretha Franklin and sit back patiently for them to open the door.
Strange... the volume is very low so I crank the volume to 10 and push the earbuds in more firmly. Ahh.
It was probably three minutes in before I realize, at the crescendo of a thrilling high note, that my earphone jack is not completely inserted into the phone. The whole cabin has been enjoying - or not - my musical selection.
I've been laughing, and blushing, ever since. My apologies, and you're welcome!
I may stay home a while.
