Tightwad Flyers

Sue and Bob, a pair of tightwads, lived in the midwest, and had been married for years. Bob had always wanted to go flying. The desire deepened each time a barnstormer flew into town to offer rides.

Bob would ask, and Sue would say, “No way, ten bucks is ten bucks.”

The years went by, and Bob figured he didn’t have much longer, so he got Sue out to the show by explaining, “It’s free to watch, let’s at least watch.” Once he got there, the feeling become real strong and an argument started.

Between flights the pilot overheard and said, “I’ll tell you what. I’ll take you up flying, and if you don’t say a word the ride is on me. But if you make one sound, you pay the ten dollars.”

So off they flew, the Pilot doing as many rolls, and dives as he could, heading to the ground as fast as the plane could go and pulling out of the dive at the very last second. Through all this the couple said not a word. Finally he admitted defeat and went back the airport.

“I’m surprised, why didn’t you say anything?”

“Well I almost said something when Sue fell out, but ten bucks is ten bucks.”
