At this point, you've already been felt up by carnies while they steal the valuables out of your luggage. This is just the icing on the cake.

dbirchall: The airline knowing who you are isn't always a bad thing. The entire staff of one airline lounge in Hawaii know who I am and greet me on sight without seeing ID.

Let's see, what else have I seen...

1. A gate agent, closing out the flight ahead of the one I was scheduled on, told me "go ahead on and find a seat; I'll do the paperwork later."
2. A gate agent told me in hushed tones, "We're not allowed to do this - but the computer says to upgrade you." (to trans-atlantic business class, when I was flying on a free ticket.)
3. A gate agent dropped off the papers for the flight at the cockpit, then stopped by my seat, gave me a hug, and got off the plane. (happened more than once)
4. A flight attendant loudly informed the other ladies working business class that I was a celebrity (I'm not, aside from being on Fark's all-time top submitters list) and should be treated well.
5. The purser of an international flight stopping by my seat and thanking me (by name) for taking the flight.

starsrift: Good luck.
My name is like the "John Lee" of China, for English culture. There's at least two dudes with my name in every town from coast to coast, pretty much.

/ anonymity, I has it
// this handle, on the other hand, DOESN'T have it, and I like it that way.


Same with me. I have the most farking generic name in the world. I moved to a new state, got a drivers license. The guy says, "Hold on for a bit we have to visually confirm that everyone that has your name on the sex offenders list, actually isn't you."

14 mins and 34 screens of faces later. He confirms its not me and says, "Damn, boy you go to put a silent "ph" in there or something. I've never seen so many *REDACTED* in my life."

"Hello, Mr. Smith...I see you haven't registered as a Level 3 sex offender. Shall I contact the police department in your arrival city and make arrangements for you?"

Googling seems like a lot of work. Hmm. If only there was a piece of paper -- a type of pass, if you will -- that was necessary for my boarding the aircraft, and that contained my name printed on it in all capital letters. Hmmm...

Is my perverse love of Japanese schoolgirls going to help British Airways greet me?

treesloth: Huh... How about you not put yourself out by Googling a person you'll never find, and instead not charge me absurd baggage fees or grope me? Or, if you're going to grope me, make it worth my while.


ensure a description of how you like to be groped appears as text on each of your GIS
images.
