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, Im sorry, sir. Ill be happy to try to help you, but Ive got to help these folks first; and then Im sure well 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, Im sorry sir, youll have to get in line for that, too.

6. Didn't happen

 

That's a popular myth that has been applied to many different situations.
It didn't happen. Sorry.

8. This is a funny story if it is true. Do you have a source for the story? nm

11. Let me say I love the story and it's worth reading no matter what.

But I consider myself an open minded Democrat and therefore somewhat skeptical. What kind of source is this? I am not criticizing just interested in learning.
