I arrive to check into a flight only to find a line at the ticket counter. An employee walks through the line telling all of us that while the weather is fine where we are, there is a snow storm in the city many of us are flying into to make connections. She informs us that all of our flights are having to be redirected and it’s going to take a while. It’s a pretty bad situation, some people are being told that they won’t be able to fly out for days, so I’m pretty worried about my flight. Still, most people are being understanding. However, I get to the counter to be redirected and overhear this gem with another customer.

Man:Why can’t they just fly into Dallas?

Employee: I’m sorry sir, but we’ve told you. There’s a snow storm.

Man: *Scoffs* My friend is in Dallas and says it’s not that bad.

Employee: *Looking up, slightly bewildered*

Man: *In a tone that suggest she’s a moron and so is the pilot for not flying into the city*They should just try it.

I couldn’t help but stare at him. I don’t know about you, but I prefer to be on flights where pilots aren’t doing anything dangerous just because one passenger has a friend who thinks the snow doesn’t look too bad.
