Canceled Flight . . . .



This girl is a keeper!!!! It happened at a New York Airport. This is hilarious. I wish I had the guts of this girl. An award should go to the United Airlines gate agent in New York for being smart and funny, while making her point, when confronted with a passenger who probably deserved to fly as cargo. For all of you out there who have had to deal with an irate customer, this one is for you.

A crowded United Airlines flight was canceled. A single agent was re-booking a long line of inconvenienced travelers.

Suddenly, an angry passenger pushed his way to the desk. He slapped his ticket on the counter and said, "I HAVE to be on this flight and it has to be FIRST CLASS."

The agent replied, "I'm sorry, sir. I'll be happy to try to help you, but I've got to help these folks first; and then I'm sure we'll be able to work something out."

The passenger was unimpressed. He asked loudly, so that the passengers behind him could hear, "DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHO I AM?"

Without hesitating, the agent smiled and grabbed her public address microphone. "May I have your attention, please?", she began, her voice heard clearly throughout the terminal. "We have a passenger here at Gate 14 WHO DOES NOT KNOW WHO HE IS. If anyone can help him with his identity, please come to Gate 14".

With the folks behind him in line laughing hysterically, the man glared at the United Airlines agent, gritted his teeth, and said, "F*** You!"

Without flinching, she smiled and said, "I'm sorry sir, you'll have to get in line for that, too."

Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain...

As to the F-U comment, at least she didn't say "no" and left the door open. I like that kind of woman.

You are the best, everyone knows it. You should have been the co-host for Johnny Carson, he never would have taken a day off.
I know that I tend to be verbiose, but I thought that when people exchanged their website with the Gunblog BlackList, that implied that they wanted people to come to their blog and read it and perhaps even respond. I found out that I must have to stop going to liberal weblogs, and posting my opinions, especially about topics that have a chance to cause shall we say, more than one point of view.
If I cause you problems with my opinions, just let me know. I won't stop writing here, I just want to know. Kidding, I never want to cause a problem.

Anonymous, If you read comments about "Anonymouses" it was people who came here to spam. They had no google ID. I dropped that requirement for a few days and was flooded by these spammers.

You are welcome all the time. Sorry for the confusion. Their name was colored black and yours is blue.
