Eavesdropping with Matt (Episode Forty-Nine: This Complicated World We Live In)

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.
