Fact Is Always Stranger...Funnier Than Fiction!
A funny story in today's 'Sunday Mail"..."Good Mail" section caught my eye and tickled my sense of humour.
A pilot flew his plane to a country town in western Queensland where the tarmac had been fenced off. At the gate was a message stating pilots should call the security manager for the code to open the gate. When the pilot rang he was told the PIN could not be divulged over the phone for security reasons and that an officer would come over with the PIN. A minute or so later, a door swung open in the terminal building about 20m away. A uniformed guard yelled the code out in front of a bunch of commuters awaiting the afternoon flight to Brisbane. The pilot didn't catch the number, so yelled back: "What?"
The obliging security man then repeated the details even louder!
Yep...our security service in this country is operating loud and clear!
