The New Boeing Tardis

| Chicago, IL, USA | Extra Stupid, Theme Of The Month, Transportation

(I have to catch a flight leaving at about 6 am. I show up at the self-check-in counters at 5 am, only to discover that my ticket won’t register.)

Airline Rep: “Is there a problem, ma’am?”

Me: “Uh, I think so. I’ve swiped my passport, punched in my ticket number, put in my name, and it’s not registering.”

(The airline rep takes my information and tries it herself; the machine still doesn’t register. She looks at my itinerary.)

Airline Rep: “Well, ma’am, I think your main problem is that your flight doesn’t leave until tomorrow.”
