Is this a true story or was it made up to make a point?

Hi Patrick,

Unfortunately, I don’t know the answer to that question. Sorry.

Great story – all about attitude and controling the self temper.

Recently, my wife borrowed a telugu movie (i think) video from a nearest library. Noticed the exact instance with a pack of potato chips while sitting on a boat, in that movie.

A good story – about controlling oneself.

This is a story that Rick Reynolds told in his stand-up/solo humor show, “Only the Truth is Funny.”

He was speaking about his own life .. yet that story was so captivating I remember it and have told it to others …and that show was in 1993. The show had a long run here in S.F. yet did not do well on Broadway, as I recall.

I thought it was original, smart, funny and poignant. He moved to Petaluma, launched a second show, was going to have a TV show, got divorced… and disappeared from the performance world it seems.

Well I first heard a version of this story in a book (fiction) by Douglas Adams “So long and thanks for all the fish” published in 1984 ( It was a railway station, not an airport and it was two men but clearly the same story.

I suspect therefore that everyone else was copying that one (unless someone has an earlier reference than 1984).
