Good comeback

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
For all of you out there who've had to deal with an irate customer, this one is for you. It's a classic!

An award should go to the United Airlines gate agent in Denver for being smart and funny, while making her point, when confronted with a
passenger who probably deserved to fly as cargo.
A crowded United Airlines flight was canceled. A single agent was
rebooking a long line of inconvenienced travelers. Suddenly an angry
passenger pushed his way to the desk. He slapped his ticket on the
counter and said, "I HAVE to be on this flight and it has to be FIRST

The agent replied, "I am sorry, sir. I'll be happy to try to help you, but I've got to help these folks 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, the agent smiled and grabbed her public address
microphone, "May I have your attention please," she began, her voice
heard clearly throughout the terminal. "We have a passenger here at Gate 14 WHO DOES NOT KNOW WHO HE IS. If anyone can help him find his
identity, please come to Gate 14."

With the folks behind him in line laughing hysterically, the man glared at the United agent, gritted his teeth and swore "F*** You!"
Without flinching, she smiled and said, "I'm sorry, sir, but you'll have to get in line for that too."

I wish I had quick answers at my disposal. I don't deal with irate customers, but I sure have my fair share of idiots to talk to!!

I wish I could use something like that LOL! Unfortunately, when you work for the government you have to be very careful.

I wish I could use that.

As for the other comment "F*** you": I, always say, "You wouldn't like it. I just lay there."
