THE FLIGHT OF STAIRS
There have been many cases where something has developed a completely unexpected "cult
following" of fanatic fans such as with the movie "The Rocky Horror Picture Show".
But there has never been a case quite like this...
One night a man named "David" was looking out of his bedroom window through a telescope
and was watching airplanes take off at a nearby airport. He noticed that the airport had those
big mobile flights of stairs that are driven up to the airplane doors when they land and he then
noticed that on the far end of the airport they had what appeared to be a driver's-ed course set
up for people who want to become the drivers of these mobile staircases. "David" was
strangely fascinated by it and over time he learned that every Tuesday from 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
they gave these tests.
"David" started to tell his friends about it and invite them over to his house on Tuesday nights
to watch it with him and as more and more people started coming over to watch it his bedroom
became too crowded so they started walking to the airport on Tuesday nights to watch it and
before you knew it a large crowd was showing up for it.
The airport management was disturbed by the cult's presence and quickly banned them from the
property, but the cult fought back by putting their money together and buying the land
surrounding the driver's-ed course and putting bleachers around it...
Every Tuesday night the bleachers were packed. The cult would "cheer" when a driver would
pass the test and get his licence (or make a really good dodge on a cone) and they would "boo"
when a driver would fail the test or hit a cone, and it would get downright riotous in the rare
case when a driver would hit a cone and the driver's-ed teacher didn't see it and the airport
management didn't know what to think of it all.
Below is a picture of "The Flight Of Stairs Driver's-Ed Course". Sometimes the cult would
hold up signs that were aimed to confuse the driver in order to make the test more challenging...
