At the airport. Slightly later flight today than normal. A woman behind me is arguing nastily with the gate agent.

Rule one of traveling by airline, never argue with the gate agent. Especially when you (ie, her) missed your flight through arriving at the gate a couple of minutes before departure. They're quite clear about that sort of thing.

Anyway, home this afternoon.

Never argue with any gate keeper, whether they are actually gaurding a gate, or managing the front desk of the person you want to speak to or the place you need to go...

Gate keepers need to be your friends. At least you want them to be. Gate keepers are, after all, gate keepers. And just about everything is behind a gate.

And gate keepers at airlines can put you on the no fly list (at least for their airline, if not for all of them).

These guys above keep saying "gatekeeper" and all I can think of is Sigourney Weaver in _Ghostbusters_ and, well, there goes the afternoon...
