Quick Thinking

The light aircraft was falling slowly from the sky, but the pilot remained calm and joined his terrified passengers. One was well dressed, while the other was obviously a backpacker.

"I've got bad news," said the pilot, "there are only two parachutes."

"Well I'm a captain of industry and I make quick decisions, so I'm having one and you two can fight over the other," said the man in the suit as he grabbed a chute and jumped.

"I'm sorry," said the pilot.

"We'll be alright," said the backpacker, "the captain of industry has just jumped out with my rucksack."
