Clerk: Hi there, how are you doing?

Passenger: I am wonderful.

Clerk: I am so sorry that flight is cancelled.

Passenger: No, no.

Clerk: Customer incident at the other end.

Passenger: So, when is the next flight?

Clerk: Yeah, they’re all kind of full.

Passenger: I booked this weeks ago, it’s my best friend’s wedding.

Clerk: I’m sorry.

Passenger: I have to get there, I have to.

Clerk: OK, let’s see what we can do.

Passenger: Thank you.

Clerk: I see there’s one stand by seat on another plane leaving tonight. Oh, that’s reserved for members of our prime flight program, you’ve got to be a 4.2 or over to qualify.

Passenger: Oh, I’m a 4.2.

Clerk: I’m afraid you’re actually a 4.183

Passenger: Well, that’s not my fault. Some woman didn’t get out in the cab. Can’t you just?

Clerk: I’m sorry it won’t let me book it without the correct ranking.

Passenger: But it’s so close.
