The Economy Is Tough For Everyone

(My father and I are on a plane, and I’m asking questions about airplane hijacks.)

Me: “How do the hijackers get into the cockpit? It’s not like they can just knock on the door and say, ‘Hi, can I hijack your plane?’”

Father: “Well, it used to be like that a while ago. The cockpit door wasn’t even locked, so anybody could just walk in. But now it’s much more difficult.”

Me: *after a pause* “So, what do the hijackers do now?”

Father: “I don’t know, maybe they work at McDonald’s instead?”
