HCTAHBP: Here’s an email I would never get in the US

Sent by a colleague who was returning to Nairobi from Dar:

Hi Brent

How was your weekend? I got home safe and sound although the plane had mechanical problem where it refused to open the flap on the wings so we had to fly for more than an hour and then it opened and then we landed safe.

Whew. Glad that it finally opened up. I wonder what the pilot’s plan was if it didn’t open?

I know what you are thinking, and no, this wasn’t an Air Tanzania flight. They’re still not flying outside of the country yet.
