Dude, Where's My Plane?

I was about 90 minutes late getting home from Chicago last night. Part of it was weather related (breezy and snowy so they had to de-ice; there were lots of planes to de-ice then the heater broke in the truck right as it was getting to us). But the other part of it was that someone got on the wrong plane.

We were at a gate that was able to load two regional jets at the same time. They loaded one then started loading ours. By the time I got to the turn to the other plane, the door was blocked by a rope. Apparently a fellow traveler got there early. So he probably screwed up two flights at once. No one booed him when he got on, but I really wanted to.

At least I got an enthusiastic welcome when I finally made it!
