People Who Cut In Line With A "quick Question"

Fri Sep 02, 2005 5:44 am

Notice how people often cut to the front of the line and say, "I just have a quick question."

Usually, while the question is quick, the answer takes lots of time.

Example of such questions:

"Is there space on the earlier flight?" (requires rebooking/ reticketing)
"Will my bags make the connection?" (required tracking the bags)
"My mother was supposed to be on this flight, but she didn't get off." (requires research)
"Will my upgrade clear?"

Shows a lack of good parenting.

Mommy and Daddy didn't raise them right.

Seriously people,

Quoting Zrs70 (Thread starter):
"My mother was supposed to be on this flight, but she didn't get off." (requires research)

probably requires immediate attention as said family member could be handicapped in some way and in need of assistance.

Also, if you really arrived so late to checkin that you can't wait an extra 30 seconds for stuff like this, you probably need to arrive earlier.

Quick question: what is a "slow" question?
