ONLINE CHECK-IN

At the airport, please refrain from using the 'online check-in' desk, unless you have checked in online. Is that simple and clear?
If on the other hand you decide to go to that counter because it is empty and then proceed to spend 25 minutes discussing seat arrangements and more, while 5 of your kind check in at the the regular counter, do not expect to see some rather pisssy looking faces behind you. If you do see the pisssy faces, do not look at them in amazement and declare that the delay is not your fault. If you do say such things and also add that the person behind you was giving you bad looks, then do not look so surprised when the person says to you that they were just surprised that it took so long as this is the queue for checked-in online folk. "Online? what is that?"
OFFS, jump off this earth and die. I hate all of you. Stupid people walking on my stupid life making it a stupid hell. I am pissed beyond words.

What makes it even worse is the stupid person behind the desk not sending the moron away to the correct counter.

Does the same thing happen to you at the 'Express Lane, 10 items or less' in supermarkets? It does to me.

thats just wrong. such people should have their tickets cancelled without a refund, and banned from the using the airline again for a 2 year period, the time in which they should learn what an e-ticket is.

its the bloody attendants fault in this case though; he should send them off and state that this CLEARLY IS for online check-ins only. i mean, its not the stupid persons fault that theyre stupid. they've always been that way.

These things make you mad?

I have a different approach. I laugh away the inconvenience, and exchange a mild joke and pleasantries with the individual concerned. No bitterness, no bitching, no fussing. Life is so much more pleasant and livable.

You ALWAYS get one! Whether you're in a queue at the airport, in the supermarket, waiting in the correct traffic lane ready or ready to give birth etc, there'll ALWAYS be that one dipshit that simply cannot abide by the rules & just HAS to be different.

But then maybe he was called over from the other line by the online check-in staff who had no queue and were trying to help their overwhelmed colleagues?

I do agree though, that if he had just skirted the other line and gone straight for the empty counter then he should have been told where to go.

LOOOOOOOL so it was you who kicked up a fuss at the airport when all i was trying to do is get my bags dropped off?

You know what, if it's EK, I always goto the business/first class counter even if i'm in economy but if you've checked in online it takes just 2 seconds to drop the bags, and with emiratis they don't ask too many questions and are quick if you're quick.

What gets my goat are the ticket counter agents - particularly, if I've got "half a pound" in excess baggage allowance. It's like they "have" to punish me, charge me for it or force out something of the queue and send me off. I try explaining, I am going home for Christmas, it's mostly just gifts blah blah blah - nope, no mercy - no Christmas spirit, just hard ass attitudes.
