Customer Service at it’s Finest (and finiest)

For all of you out there who have had to
deal with an challenging customer, this one is for you.An oldie, but a goodie.
It happened 4 years ago at a New York Airport
A busy United Airlines flight was canceled. A
single agent was re-booking a long line of inconvenienced travelers.
Out of the blue, an angry passenger pushed and shoved his way to the desk. He slapped his ticket on the counter and said, “I HAVE to be on this flight and it has to be FIRST CLASS.”
The agent replied, “I’m sorry, sir. I’ll be happy to try
to help you, but I’ve got to help these folks first; and then 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 agent smiled and grabbed her
public address microphone. “May I have your attention, please?”, she began, her voice heard clearly throughout the terminal. “We have a passenger here at Gate 14 WHO DOES NOT KNOW WHO HE IS. If anyone can help him with his identity, please come to Gate 14”.
With the folks behind him in line laughing hysterically,
the man glared at the United Airlines agent, gritted his teeth, and said, “F*** You!”
Without flinching, she smiled and said, “I’m sorry sir,
you’ll have to get in line for that, too.”

Life isn’t about how to survive the storm, but how to
dance in the rain…
