The jealous husband

Sitting in front of me on the plane was an elderly couple; they were both over 60.

Before the plane took off, another old man came up to the lady and said, "Hi!" She also said something to him.

Then the man said to the husband, "Harold, how are you?" But the husband didn't answer.

When the man went away, the husband got so mad! For ten minutes or more he was insulting and scolding his wife.

When the plane landed, the other old man again had to come very close to the lady, and the lady again said something to him.

Her husband was holding two small bags. He got so furious that he just dropped them on the seat.

I was dying to get off the plane before he struck his wife. I saw his anger and wanted to disappear immediately.
