Subject: Only a Malaysian arsehole is capable of that
I suppose everyone of you must have boarded a plane before. Ever encounter
any proud and arrogant joker like some sort of "Datuk" or "Tan Sri"
shouting at the top of his voice at the check-in counter? Read this one.
Very interesting.......especially the last bit ......hahahaha....
THIS SHOULD APPLY TO EVERY AIRLINE DESK ANYWHERE IN MALAYSIA - WHERE
EVERYONE HAS SEEN THE "DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM" ASSHOLEs everywhere: airports,
restaurants, traffic lights......
An award should go to the Virgin Airlines desk attendant in Sydney
some months ago for being smart and funny, while making her point, when
confronted with a passenger who probably deserved to fly as cargo.
A crowded Virgin flight was cancelled after Virgin's 767s had been
withdrawn from service. A single attendant was rebooking a long line of
Suddenly an angry passenger pushed his way to the desk. He slapped
his ticket down on the counter and said, 'I HAVE to be on this flight and
it HAS to be FIRST CLASS'. The attendant replied, 'I'm sorry, sir. I'll be
happy to try to help you, but I've got to help these people 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 attendant smiled and grabbed her public address microphone: 'May I have
your attention please, may I have your attention please,' she began - her
voice heard clearly throughout the terminal.
'We have a passenger here at Desk 14 WHO DOES NOT KNOW WHO HE IS. If
anyone can help him find his identity, please come to Desk 14.'With the
folks behind him in line laughing hysterically, the man glared at the Virgin
attendant, gritted his teeth and said, 'F.. You!' Without flinching, she
smiled and said, (I love this bit) 'I'm sorry, sir, but you'll have to get
in line for that too .
