sitting next to this dumb coot, and the pilot comes on the intercom after takeoff and tells us one of the engines had a warning light so they shut it down. He says we're fine with three engines and can even fly with just one, but we'll be delayed a couple of minutes.

A little later he comes on again and says well shucks, another engine is out. No problem but we'll be 10 minutes late arriving.

Almost immediately it happens again - 3 of the 4 engines are out. Pilot says no worries but we will be 30 minutes late.

The coot leans over and says to me - dang if that last engine goes out, we'll be up here all day.
