Cancelled flight

A crowded Virgin flight was cancelled at Glasgow Airport after Virgin's 747s had been withdrawn from service. A single attendant was re-booking a long line of inconvenienced travellers. 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 Glasgow lassie, wee Jeanie, who was the attendant replied, “I'm sorry, sir. I'll be happy to try to help you, but I've got to help these people 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, wee Jeanie smiled and grabbed her public address microphone: “May I have your attention please, may I have your attention please”, she began - her voice heard clearly throughout the terminal – “we have a passenger here at Desk 14 WHO DOES NOT KNOW WHO HE IS. If anyone can help him find his identity, please come to Desk 14.”

With the folks behind him in line laughing hysterically, the man glared at the Virgin attendant, gritted his teeth and said, “Fuck You!”

Without flinching, wee Jeanie smiled and said, “I'm sorry, sir, but you'll have to get in line for that too.”
