Smarter Than We Seem

After my brother boarded his flight for a short trip, I got this text:

The guy sitting next to me on the plane brought a huge bag of snacks for a 2 hour flight.

We laughed and speculated as to what kind of person would need so many snacks.

But, mechanical failure turned a 2 hour flight into a 4-5 hour ordeal.

My brother texted something about the snack guy and being prepared. I quickly responded:

All of the sudden the situation made him smarter than he looked.

I think there are a lot of 'snack guys' out there who look a little odd - and even slightly ridiculous - to the rest of us. In a moment, though, preppers become heroes and snack guys reveal their genius.
