My dad and I are taking a short commuter flight to San Diego. Right as the gate attendant is about to start boarding us…

Passenger #1: EXCUSE ME, WE MISSED OUR FLIGHT TO LOS ANGELES AND WE ARE CONNECTING TO HOUSTON! GET US ON A PLANE IMMEDIATELY!
Airline Employee: Sir, I’m very sorry you missed your flight. What is your name?
Passenger #1: IT’S *name*! NOW ARE YOU GETTING US ON THE FLIGHT OR NOT???
Airline Employee: I’m very sorry sir, but there are currently no empty seats on any of our flights to Los Angeles. Perhaps a different airline-
Passenger #2: EXCUSE ME, BUT WE PAID MONEY FOR YOUR AIRLINE! PUT US ON ONE OF YOUR FLIGHTS!
Airline Employee: Again, I am sorry. I can put you on our waiting list-
Passenger #1: THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE! PUT-
Airline Employee: Sir, the computer says you arrived at our check-in counter and checked your baggage ten minutes before your flight was set to depart. Boarding stops ten minutes before departure, and we are at peak rush hour at the moment. Perhaps you should have arrived at the airport earlier. Now, I have to board this flight, so please wait a moment or go back to the check-in counters to be put on a waiting list.
Me internally: Go gate lady!
