    It happened at a New York Airport. This is hilarious. I
    wish I had the guts of this girl. An award should go to the United
    Airlines gate agent in New York for being smart and funny, while
    making her point, when confronted with a passenger who probably
    deserved to fly as cargo. For all of you out there who have had to
    deal with an irate customer, this one is for you.

    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, "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 United Airlines agent, gritted his teeth, and said, "F*** You!"

    Without flinching, she smiled and said, "I'm sorry sir,
    you'll have to get in line for that, too."

    Obviously, it was Senator Kerry....

    "One off the surest ways to get the phones ringing on any Massachusetts talk-radio show is to ask people to call in and tell their John Kerry stories. The phone lines are soon filled, and most of the stories have a common theme: our junior senator pulling rank on one of his constituents, breaking in line, demanding to pay less (or nothing) or ducking out before the bill arrives.

    The tales often have one other common thread. Most end with Sen. Kerry inquiring of the lesser mortal: "Do you know who I am?"
