I'm one of those annoying people that shows up for flights three hours early. If I leave my house and only have two hours to spare I get sweaty and nervous and look at my watch every few minutes. My friend Nate on the other hand plays it fast and loose. The last time he came out to visit me the counterperson wasn't going to let him into the airport because the plane was taking off in a few minutes. He told the lady his kid had been screaming when he left, and she let him through and he made the flight. Now, Nate doesn't have kids, but I commend him for using that excuse. Why should people with kids get all the breaks?
