The great thing about airport bars is that they always have “tall” options.
For example, I just ordered an Anchor Steam hoping for a nice cold pint, but was offered the “tall” version instead.
Because I’m a living human being and I enjoy beer, I gladly accepted.
Here is said tall Anchor Steam.
I’m always pleasantly surprised by how smooth security lines can be, especially when I’m not in a hurry.
There was one lady, however, who decided it was completely acceptable to check in for her 5:50 flight to San Diego at 5:25. Hey, I get it. Why spend unneeded time at the airport?
But this lady took it next level.
Not only did she not meet the half hour cutoff for check-in, she was appalled and borderline offended that the kiosk — which is programmed to obey such protocol — would not allow her to check in for her flight. Because it clearly is HER flight.
Not to be outdone at check-in, this woman proceeded to just cut the security line because, you know, she had to catch a flight in 10 minutes and it was totally someone else’s fault.
I didn’t mind though. I was about an hour early for my flight, so I let her pass. She did get pretty touchy feely with my security trays, but I avoided confrontation. Not because I would do anything to avoid confrontation, but because I didn’t want to be the next reason why she almost missed her flight. I don’t need those types of bad vibes going against me.
After all, that’s why airport bars have “tall” options.
God bless them for that.
Also, if for some reason Ms. In-A-Hurry ever finds this, I’m sorry. I’ll buy you a beer sometime.
