If you've been on a long flight, you might know this feeling. All you want is some quiet or a chance to take a quick nap, but you ended up sitting next to someone who insists on talking your ear off. Your polite indications that you want to be left alone go unnoticed or are ignored. 

In this fun fictional story, a woman finds the perfect way to get back at her annoying flight mate. This lawyer seems like he's used to getting his way, but he's finally met his match.

A woman and a lawyer were seated next to each other on a flight from LA to NY. The lawyer asked if she would like to play a fun game. 

The woman, tired, just wanted to take a nap. She politely declined and rolled over to the window to catch a few winks. The lawyer persisted and explained that the game is easy and a lot of fun. He explained, “I ask you a question, and if you don’t know the answer, you pay me $5.00, and vice versa.”  

Again, she declined and tried to get some sleep. 

The lawyer, now agitated, says, “Okay, if you don’t know the answer you pay me $5.00, and if I don’t know the answer, I will pay you $500.00.” 

This catches the woman’s attention and, figuring there will be no end to this torment unless she plays, she agrees to the game.  

The lawyer asks the first question. “What’s the distance from the earth to the moon?” 

The woman doesn’t say a word, reaches into her purse, pulls out a $5.00 bill and hands it to the lawyer. “Okay,” says the lawyer, “your turn.” 

She asks the lawyer, “What goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four legs?” 

The lawyer, puzzled, takes out his laptop and searches all his references. No answer. He searches the net and the library of congress. No answer. Frustrated, he sends an email to his friends and coworkers to no avail. After an hour, he wakes the woman, and hands her $500.00.

The woman says, “Thank you,” and turns back to get some more sleep. 

The lawyer, who is more than a little miffed, wakes the woman and asks, “Well, what’s the answer?” 

Without a word, the woman reaches into her purse, hands the lawyer $5.00, and goes back to sleep.
