OBee's Stories

Wrong Room

A group of pilots were in the bar of the 114 Club located in Casper, WY. and it was closing time about midnight. As we exited the club, we passed the rest room areas, where I noted that the sign that spelled "WOMEN", designating the Ladies rest room, had two light bulbs behind the lettering, but the one behind the letters "WO" was burned out. Jim Browning left us to use the restroom and he went into the first door that had a sign over the door reading "MEN". Obviously it was the door with the burned out bulb in it so he was going into the Womens rest room. I elbowed the guy standing beside me and said, "Watch this, its going to be pretty good". Shortly thereafter, Browning rejoined us and I asked him, "How hed handled the situation?". His reply was, "I told the girls not to get up, Id only come to wash my hands". Not bad for an old country boy from Lyons, Kansas.
