“Before you assume, try this crazy method called asking.”
… Alfred de Vigny
A Story shared by Prat
John, a professional Photographer was told that a Twin-Engine Plane would be waiting at the Airport.
Arriving at the Airport he spotted a Plane warming up outside the hanger.
He jumped in, said ‘Let’s go’.
The Pilot taxied and took off.
Once in the air John told the Pilot: ‘Fly Low over the Valley so I can take Pictures of the Fire on the hill’
Pilot : Why.?
John : Bcoz I’m the Photographer for CNN. I need to get some close up shots.
Pilot was strangely silent for a moment, then he stammered ‘So, what You’re telling me is . . . You’re Not
My Flying Instructor’?.
Always ask, never assume
Make it simple…. Clarify when in doubt
