>An award should go to the United Airlines gate agent in Denver for
>being smart and funny, and making her point, when confronted with a
>passenger who probably deserved to fly as cargo.
>
>During the final days at Denver's old Stapleton airport, a crowded
>United flight was canceled.
>
>A single agent was rebooking a long line of inconvenienced travelers.
>Suddenly an angry passenger pushed his way to the desk.  He slapped his
>ticket down 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 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 gate agent smiled and grabbed her public
>address microphone.
>
>"May I have your attention please?" she began, her voice bellowing
>throughout the terminal.  "We have a passenger here at the gate WHO
>DOES NOT KNOW WHO HE IS.  If anyone can help him find his identity,
>please come to the gate."
>
>With the folks behind him in line laughing hysterically, the man glared
>at the United agent, gritted his teeth and swore "Fuck you."
>
>Without flinching, she smiled and said, "I'm sorry, sir, but you'll
>have to stand in line for that, too."
>
>The man retreated as the people in the terminal applauded loudly.
>Although the flight was canceled and people were late, they were no
>longer angry at United.
