i looked her over and replied, "you know, if the plane goes down, and there is fire, broken glass, shards of torn metal, all over the place, and there is a slight chance of escape..i'll stomp over someone like you to safety..you'll be trying to excape on bloody stumps"
the look on her face was priceless. i quickly said.."just joking..it is easier to wear these things than pack them, i'll happily help you out of the fire"
there was no salvaging that relationship. it was done.
