Dedicated to the young woman at the Pensacola airport, and to the gentleman who worked there and helped her get to her gate on time.
Young woman: Sir, can you help me find my gate? It's 24 C.
Worker: What? There's no gate 24 at this airport. It doesn't go that high.
Young woman (raising her voice a little): It says 24 C right here on my ticket.
Worker: But that can't be...
Young woman (nearly yelling): Look at my ticket!
The worker takes her ticket and studies it closely.
Worker: 24 C is your seat assignment. You're at gate 12.
Young woman (very quiet): Oh. Thank you.
