From Anderson Cooper’s “Despatches from the edge“:

(On his way to Sri Lanka to cover the effects of the devastating Tsunami.)

“On the plane the flight attendant asks a Sri Lankan passenger if she’s comfortable.

‘I’ve just lost three people in my family,’ the passenger says.

‘Oh, that’s terrible,’ the flight attendant says, pausing for a moment. ‘No duty-free then?'”
