There’s nothing worse than finding out your flight has been delayed, or worse, cancelled. Regardless, there is no reason to abuse the airline employees who had nothing to do with the cancellation. One man tried to take his anger out on the wrong agent and quickly (and embarrassingly) learned his lesson!
Guy Goes Crazy on an Airline Agent Before a Flight…
A crowded United Airlines flight was cancelled.
A single agent was rebooking a long line of inconvenienced travelers. Suddenly, an angry passenger pushed his way to the desk front. 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 am sorry, sir. I’ll be happy to try to help you, but I’ve got to help these folks first, and 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 find his identity, please come to Gate 14.”
With the folks behind him in line laughing hysterically, the man glared at the United agent, gritted his teeth and swore “F*** you!”
Without flinching, she smiled and said, “I‘m sorry, sir, but you’ll have to get in line for that, too.”
Great joke but even better lesson! It really doesn’t pay to treat people badly, no matter the circumstances!
