The Guardian (U.K.) recently shared a brilliant travel horror story about a man who, upon racing to make a flight connection, was told he could not board the plane because his flight was delayed. Not the flight he was attempting to catch — the flight he had just completed.
“I’m sorry sir, that flight has been delayed,” the agent said. “You won’t make the connection.”
“But I made the connection — I’m here,” the traveler explained.
“But you cannot be,” the agent insisted.
He missed his flight.
