The woman at the check-in desk at a New York Airport should get an award for how she dealt with this obnoxious customer! For all of you out there who have had to deal with an irate customer, this one is for you.
A crowded Southwest Airlines flight was canceled due to unsafe weather. A single agent was re-booking a long line of inconvenienced travelers.
Suddenly, an angry passenger pushed his way to the desk ahead of the line. 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 Southwest Airlines agent, gritted his teeth, and said, “Screw you!”
Without flinching, she smiled and said, “I’m sorry sir, you’ll have to get in line for that, too.”
SHARE if you laughed!
