Aboard a flight from New York to Raleigh, a UNC freshman was taking his very first flight to begin university life.
They had only been aloft a few minutes when the student complained to the flight attendant that his ears were popping.
The flight attendant smiled and gave the UNC student some chewing gum, assuring him that many people experienced the same discomfort.
When they landed in New York, the student thanked the flight attendant.
"The chewing gum worked fine," he said, "but tell me, how do I get it out of my ears?"
