Overheard at SeaTac airport (can you call it overheard if it’s over the PA?) last Friday:

“Uh, passengers on flight [whatever] to [wherever], this is your pilot speaking … I regret to inform you that they found something wrong with the plane during the walkaround inspection, and they are waiting on a mechanic to come check it out. I can’t really give you an estimated time of departure; we just have to wait. I’d really like to give you a time, but I really just don’t know, and if I did tell you a time, I’d just be pulling it out of my … … … uh … um … out of … the back of my head.”
