Forget Able and Willing. Do you have an exit row disposition?

I was involved in a Twitter conversation the other day about people being concerned I wouldn’t be able to lift the exit door on the plane. (I think they actually wanted my seat!)

I typically comment that I’m a bartender so if there was a beer keg in the way, I could still save us all.

One time, I decided to get all serious and tell them I actually have experience in operating the door before, but all that did was make the flight attendant and fellow passengers nervous.  (Thanks a lot, StarMegaDo.)

But if you were wondering if YOU have what it takes to operate the exit door, boy do I have a quiz for you.

The quiz results for me gave me the thumbs up.  I’m sure my ability to speak ten bird languages helped with that.

Feel free to post your results in the comments!

If the unthinkable were to happen, you’d be too paralyzed by your past, in which you were bullied by a plane emergency door, to perform your duties. Plus, if Carl loses it, which he’s totally gonna, just look at him, you’d be of no help. Try opening more emergency exit doors, and take this quiz again!
