  • You get a pat down at an international secondary screening point, instead of thinking, "This is such an invasion of privacy!" you're thinking, "This tickles!"

The first time I queued up for FRA security screening in T1C for flights to the US, I was wondering why I was hearing giggles from the front of the queue. When i got to the front and saw what's happening, I finally understood. When it was finally my turn I remember thinking, "This feels like a come on!" Luckily the nice German boyo doing it was serious eye candy. :D:oops::shock:

And you are really disappointed when they have not replaced the magazines by the 3rd day of the new month.

When the flight crew announce that due to a change of runway (@ JFK) your A/C is now 34th of 55 queued to take off and you think ''mmm more time to take pics of other aircraft as they taxi".

When the check-in chick has your boarding pass printed before you reach the counter (and she knows your destination even though you have forgotten)!
