Daily Joke: An Old Blind Woman Was Flying from Melbourne to Brisbane

Today’s #jokeoftheday is about an elderly woman who is blind and was on a flight from Melbourne to Brisbane with her service dog, only to find out that the flight was re-directed.

An elderly woman joined a flight from Melbourne to Brisbane to go spend some days with her loved ones. Unfortunately, the route of the trip was switched, and the plane was diverted to Sydney.

The passengers weren’t excited about the change in plans, and the crew onboard tried to appease them. The flight attendant explained why the delay was happening and told the passengers that they would give them 50 minutes to walk around and get some things before they re-board.

Instantly, everyone got off the plane, and it became empty except for an elderly woman who sat by the window side at the back. A man who was leaving the aircraft noticed her sitting quietly and realized she was blind after spotting her service dog lying at her feet. 


He wanted to approach her but got interrupted by the pilot’s voice and then realized that she was a regular on the flight. The pilot came to the old woman and said to her:

“Kathy, we are in Sydney for almost an hour. Would you like to get off and stretch your legs?”

The woman smiled but refused. Instead, she told the pilot to take her dog Max and help him stretch his legs. The pilot agreed and grabbed the leash of the dog before heading for the plane's door.

As he held the dog and walked off the plane with his dark shades on, people froze in their tracks before chaos broke out. They all began to clamor to change the airline as they thought the pilot was blind. 


Another hilarious joke tells the story of an elderly woman who walks into a bank, requesting a loan of $5,000. The banker asked if she has any collateral, and she responded by saying her Rolls Royce would do. Surprised at her response, the banker said:

“A $250,000 Rolls Royce? Really?”


The woman didn’t bat her eyelashes as she handed over her vehicle's keys to the banker. He happily accepted it, and he and the loan officers mocked the woman for being so gullible.

After verifying her credentials, they gave her the loan and parked her vehicle in their underground garage. After two weeks, the woman returned with the loan and interest of $15.41. Once she was done clearing her debt, the loan officer pulled her to the side and asked why she borrowed $5,000.


They had looked her up and discovered that she was a multi-millionaire, so they couldn’t understand her motive. She smiled at him and shook her head slowly before saying:

“Where else in New York City can I park my car for two weeks for only $15.41 and expect it to be there when I return?”

What an intelligent woman! If you enjoyed this joke, click here for one about an elderly woman who was discussing with fellow beachgoers about how proud she was of her grandchildren and their life achievements.
