What do you do when a procedurally generated number offends you?  Mock outrage, that's what.

It's like using your fingers to count to four in binary.

FTFA:  "I was worried that another customer might think I somehow picked that code. If I were a gay male, I might have thought that a Delta worker purposely gave me that code, and that would have made me extremely uncomfortable."

But that wasn't the case, was it? And yet, here you are, whining to the news media.

Also FTA:  For example, when Heather Sachs recently flew from Baltimore to Singapore, the flight crew referred to her as "sir" on several occasions, which upset her. "I'm a tall woman with short hair," says Sachs, a real estate specialist for the military. "But very obviously a woman."

Apparently not.

Maybe the flight crew was made up entirely of Marcies.

Which raises the question.  If a woman dresses like a man, acts like a man, in an effort to be equal with men, why get upset when somebody confuses her with a man?

It was a guy whose panties were in a wad about "H8GAYS" on his boarding pass. The column is about all the horrors the airlines inflict on God-fearing Americans, like not offering financial compensation if your two-hour flight was ruined because your blankie had a stranger's hair on it.
