Oh, why can’t an old retired supersonic jet be left in peace to enjoy its remaining years in the sun? After ending your career with British Airways, you’d think you'd be left alone to enjoy your time off. Instead, you’re sent thousands of miles away from home to the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York. But maybe it’s not such a bad life after all—you get to sit in peaceful abandon most of the time, and when you do get visitors, most of them are wowed by your presence. You are, after all, the previous holder of the transatlantic speed record, not too shabby for an old bird.
Sure, your paint’s peeled slightly and some birds might have, erm … ‘messed’ on you every once in a while, but that’s all part of aging, right? You might not be pretty anymore but at least you have all your parts intact. And then one day, an over-energetic young turk (oops, I meant truck) comes along, all hepped-up about going to a music festival, bumps into you, and accidentally knocks your nose off. Worst of all, a crowd of planespotters with nothing better to do at 3 a.m. on a Monday morning just happens to be around, and decides to alert the world to your misfortune. And now, your plight is splashed all over the Internet so that other people with nothing better to do at 3 am on a Monday morning can read about it.
The insurance may cover the plastic surgery to repair your nose, but nothing will be enough to mend your wounded pride.
