Sybil Bruncheon's "Manners Are Nice #51"... Phyllis and Bill - Don't Point!

Sybil Bruncheon's "Manners Are Nice" #51....

Phyllis was excited to be flying on a jet to Paris. She sat beside an attractive man named Bill from Dallas, and he seemed very friendly and quite sophisticated until it was dinner time. The nice steward and stewardess came by with a delicious and nutritious seven-course meal beautifully laid out on a cart....Bill said that was how they did it on Panam! There were so many yummy things to choose from, and then, suddenly ...the meal was spoiled. Bill noticed that the stewardess only had one hand, maybe from birth, or an accident involving a buzz saw…or a clown. Her name tag said she was "Judy", and Phyllis thought she was very pretty... but Bill pointed at her and giggled that she was holding both the spoon and the fork in her one remaining hand. Phyllis and the steward pretended not to hear, even when Judy's hand shook a little, and a sad look darted through her lovely blue eyes. She finished serving the Croquettes de Poulet et Le Beurre d'Arachide Égyptienne, the Guimauve a la Surprise Flambée, and the creamed corn with Spam shavings....and then she moved on. The steward finished also and rolled the cart to the next row of seats. He was mad, but didn't say anything because Judy was his friend... and because when he was only 8 he'd seen a lady in the circus who had a foot where a hand ought to be. Phyllis offered Bill the salt and pepper and ate the meal mostly in silence. It wasn't her place to scold him, but later when they landed in Paris, she reported him to the nice people at the Panam desk at baggage claim. She heard later that someone had urinated in his luggage....
