Plane Issues

My mom in no way is an illiterate village folk. She is well educated, worked as a teacher for over 30 years and is well read and up to date on current events. But there are times when she appears a bit naive and inexperienced in worldly things. Like on this fine afternoon when we(Me, Mom and aQQui) were on different stages of reading paper and siesta-ing after lunch.

Mom: So, do Aeroplanes have bathrooms in them?
Me: No mom, they don't.
Mom: Really? I don't believe it. Don't they aQQui?
aQQui: No mom, think how it is even possible. Trains open to tracks na? How can they do that with a plane?
Mom: But... that is really terrible!
Me: Yeah. You know why they ask people to check in 4 hours ago on internationals na? They make them stop drinking or eating then.
Mom: Really?
Me: Uh uh. And they advice people to 'go' before entering the plane too.
Mom: Wow.
aQQui: If the planes have stops on the way, we can go then.
Mom: So why they talk about food on planes on TV?
Me: That... they only give that right before you have to get out. So that there wont be any 'incidents'!
aQQui: Yeah! They are trying to invent something to stop these. But as of now, nothing has happened.
*By this time we both, but me mostly had started snickering*
Mom: You two are such nasty kids for tricking your mother! I don't even know why i bothered asking you. *huffs and walks away*
aQQui: So, when do you think we went overboard?
Me: Around the food serving?
aQQui: Probably.
