Amid the chaos that was Newark Airport last night:
Random Passenger: "Are you standing in line to check in for flight 123?"
Debt Bitch, after a long pause: "Excuse me?"
Random Passenger: "Flight 123? Are you checking in?"
Debt Bitch, after longer pause: "I'm sorry?"
Random Passenger, not yet realizing the gravity of his mistake: "I'm trying to find out if you are checking in for flight 123. When did you get here?"
Debt Bitch, louder: "Who are you, exactly?"
Random Passenger: "I'm just trying to..."
Debt Bitch, now with the attention of the entire line: "Do you have some identification? I'd like to see some ID please."
Random Passenger, stuttering but, amazingly, reaching for ID: "Well, I am just a passenger. I- I've been trying to get on this flight since 6:00"
Debt Bitch with hand out: "Yeah, let's see the ID."
Random Passenger: "Look, all I want to know is..."
Debt Bitch, now examining the wallet she has been handed: "Well, Mr. (pause) Williams. I think you ask too many questions."
Random Passenger: (stunned silence)
Debt Bitch, handing back the wallet: "Anything else?"
Random Passenger, slinking away: "No."
