Landing Delayed By Tea Break

Here's a guy who's got his priorities straight - though if you were waiting for him to get back from his tea break so your plane could land you might not agree.

The Glasgow Evening Times reports that a plane returning to Britain from Tenerife was left circling the airport for about 25 minutes until an air traffic controller finished his tea break.

As expected, the important details (what type of tea, how did he take it) were omitted.

Apparently this is an unconfirmed report, but you can read the whole thrilling saga here.

Two bonus points to anyone who can point out Tenerife on a map. No cheating.

While I will admit that I'd be a little cranky about landing late, I do believe in the sanctity of tea time. In fact, I think that the U.S. would be a better place if tea time became a regular part of the day!
