9. Prepare for Takeoff

A: I hate to fly.

B: Because of all the security?

A: No, because it hurts my ears.

B: What do you mean?

A: Every time we land or take off, my ears hurt so much.

B: That's just the altitude change, I think.

A: Whatever it is, it hurts.

B: Can't you take medicine or something for it?

A: I've tried everything, but nothing works.

B: Have you tried earplugs?

A: They don't work, either.

B: Well, be glad you're not a pilot.
