While traveling …

While traveling, at the crack o' dawn, to the Macworld Expo for various meetings and to help Broback with his blogging presentation this went down

  • Code for guest pass airfare with airline was invalid, delay figuring that out with ticketing agent who was confused as to why my code would be invalid, as was I.
  • Paid full fare to try and make the flight, rushed to security.
  • “e-selected” because of last minute purchase and one-way (it wasn't supposed to be one way), which means full-on security check of baggage and body.
  • Missed flight.
  • Approached counter to inquire about next flight, overhear counter agent say, “standby passengers annoy me.” I say, “I’m one of those standby passengers and I’m about to annoy you further.” She shoos me away to customer service at another gate.
  • Said “serenity now” quietly and breathed deeply to calm myself.
  • Explained to customer service agent that I’m stressed, attempting to mellow out, and tell the story, noting the bitchy counter agent.
  • She inquires, is also confused about my ticket, checks several things, and offers another guest pass round trip - nice agent, very nice.
  • Relaxed a bit, give bitchy agent the stink eye when I walk past, coffee, a few emails, wake up a sleepy Broback with my status.
  • Board the plane.
  • Run from plane departure to taxi, jarring ride to meeting.

More on the meeting and Macworld in another post.
