Welcome to Tales By Tom. This is the seventh installment of Tom
Cagley Sr's short shory collections entitled,
“Travel At Your Own Risk.”
Story 13: The night chivalry could have died--- but didn’t. During the trauma, that night begged a lot of questions --- like how far would you go to protect an employee who got to the point where she couldn’t help herself? How long would you stay with her to see she made it back to her hotel? How many indignities would you endure? Would you chase her up a frozen fountain? Would you rescue her from a locked Central Park? Listen and see where I drew the line.
Story 14: What happened to me on Cathay Pacific flight CX703 can never happen again --- unless you are “packing,” as they say, and have terrorism on your mind. I wasn’t and didn’t---I was just bored out of my sleepless mind, and all my traveling companions were asleep. It was a genuine treat flying that big a plane at Mach .849 at 35,000 feet. And landing in Bangkok? A snap --- my hands never touched the controls and we still made it. Skill, like talent, will out, I always say. What a trip!
