How many of you have been in some situation in which there was some potential problem but you were too embarrassed to speak up?
A friend related an incident in which he was on a large plane ready to take off when condensation started venting from the overhead air vents. It did not turn out to be a problem but he said it was very scary at the time and only 1 passenger of the 150 or so on board spoke up. The rest were too embarrassed to step out into the lime light and potentially save everyone’s life.
I think that this is a very common thing that people will risk death before embarrassment
