A Man of Letters


Not everyone who comes to the dentist is intimidated by the experience. Mr Sutton, a patient at Rockingham Dental Centre for many years, always tries to make it a mirthful experience. Being a very widely read and erudite gentleman, he picks up various humorous snippets which he often copies for us. For many years he has brought a smile to our face before getting down to the serious business of dentistry. Below are a sample of his most recent work with a flying theme.

Apparently, after every flight, Qantas pilots fill out a form, called a “gripe sheet”, which tells mechanics about problems with the aircraft. The mechanics correct the problems; document their repairs on the form, and then pilots review the gripe sheets before the next flight.

Never let it be said that ground crews lack a sense of humour. Here are some actual maintenance complaints submitted by Qantas Pilots and the solutions recorded by maintenance engineers:

Pilots: Dead bugs on windshield.
Engineers: Live bugs on back order.

Pilots: Number 3 engine missing.
Engineers: Engine found on right wing after brief search.

Pilots: Aircraft handles funny.
Engineers: Aircraft warned to straighten up, fly right, and be serious.

Pilots: Mouse in cockpit.
Engineers: Cat installed.

Pilots: Noise coming from under instrument panel. Sounds like
a midget pounding on something with a hammer.
Engineers: Took hammer away from midget.
