A 400 pound man, drops from the school, gets himself an airplane ticket and boards the plane. He
seats himself in the first class cabin on a cross-country flight, and settles himself in for the
trip, snoring soundly as curious passengers seated around watch him.

Underway, a flight attendant soon approaches the man, wakes him up and says, 'Sir, I'm sorry, but I
see that your ticket is for coach, and you're seated in first class I'm afraid you'll have to move."
The man replies, "I'm 400 pounds, and I'm a wrestler, and I'm going to New York to play professional

Slightly incredulous, the attendant alerts the senior flight attendant. The senior attendant
approaches the blonde and says, politely, "I'm sorry, Sir, but since your ticket is for coach you'll
have to move back." The man replies angrily, "I'm 400 pounds, and I'm a wrestler, and I'm going to
New York to play professional wrestling" and shows no signs of moving.

Frustrated, the senior attendant informs the captain, and he says he'll deal with the problem. He
turns over flight control, walks to the rear, and observes the man seated comfortably in first class.
Approaching him with a smile, the captain leans over and speaks quietly into the man's ear. Almost
immediately, the man gathers his things, gets up, and moves quickly to the coach compartment.
Slightly amazed, the senior flight attendant asks the captain, "Captain, I'm impressed. what did you
say to him?" The captain grinned slyly and said, "I just told him that the first class cabin doesn't
go to New York."
