"These tickets are 6 months old."
"But we didn't use them then. It's the same flight number, today."
"And you want to use these tickets today for a flight that you missed in November?"
"Oh, we didn't miss it. We decided not to go. We'll need the same seats for today, my knee is bad."
--An airline check-in agent, and a passenger, seemingly talking to each other, but not really hearing anything.

and i just noticed one of the responses to this posting...

"Okay, if that's not being hysterical, then that bitch crazy. And there is no way in hell I'm inviting her to anything, ever. Ev. Er.

And besides, didn't we all have some neighbor when we were growing up who we didn't talk to? The family who, at the most, got that generic slight throwing back of the head in acknowledgement of their existence, but only if you two happen, accidentally, to make eye contact?

That creature needs to be relocated to an environment where it can be with its own kind, to run around and play and interact with other creatures more like it.
So where does one send a creature like that? Utah or Idaho, maybe, to live with the Mormons? Best I can think of.

Crazy bitch."

I can see this situation on "Airline" on A&E already...

In this situation, the moron consumer will get all angry... slam things on the counter, and threaten to sue the airline.

The agent will remain calm, with a glint of humor in his/her eye, while he/she repeats for the 5th time that the tickets aren't valid.

The airline will be forced to make a concession and put the person in a seat, just to shut them up and move on.

The next customer will wonder why the check-in agent isn't chipper and nice, after being beaten around for the last 1/2 hour.

People are stupid. In airports, they're even stupider.

Have you heard that (supposedly true) anecdote about the hellish passenger who bolted to the front of a very long line of StandBy fliers and told the counter person - "I MUST get on that flight" to which the attendent told him, very politely, that he'd have to go to the back of the line and wait like everyone else. "But I'm a very imporant man. I simply MUST get on that flight, you *&%$#*&..." she was polite again and told him once again to wait his turn. He then said " F**K YOU!!" to which she responded: "I'm afraid you'll have to wait on line for THAT also!"...to thunderous applause from the irritated passengers who'd already been waiting forever!
"I don't really get the ending,all i can go with is when after several months,Judith saw Pat sang,and later she kissed him on the toilet,after that the story back to where Pat went down from the stage after he'd sung,and he went to the italian lady.I just don't get it,what Judith exatcly meant when he kissed Pat that she had seen,and did Pat end up together with The Italian Lady?Please help me,thank u very much!" Quote from someone on IMDB in reference to a movie he/she didn't understand. Such grammar!

There are times that I get air rage.
It's almost always directed to fellow passengers who are behaving irrationally.

My mother is a flight attendant. I grew up in airports. Those people put up with soooooo much crap.

I think I used to work for that guy. I went through dozens of travel agents, each one refusing to take my calls after experiencing booking a flight for him (also numerous limo services and hotels who politely asked that we take his business elsewhere. He has to be the only person for whom the Plaza turned down the booking of a huge function). I finally had to convince him to start chartering his plane. It was the only way to get the plane to go on his schedule rather than the airlines and keep me from getting angry calls about his abusive attitude

There is a great Mike Myers story about him calling his agent who was on a plane about some problem.When Myers was informed that the agent was in flight he DEMANDED that the agent "turn right around and deal with this!!!" The agent went "Umm I don't have that ARRANGEMENT with American Airlines ..."
