Today when I got to the airport I tried to check-in using the self service things, and it spit out a peice of paper saying that it could not help me, and that I needed to see a ticket agent. That was with my credit card, so I tried my check card thinking it may have not like my CC or something. But something with my check card. So I went up to a ticket agent, and he took the paper things, and started to type in the info.
So I said something like
ME> "Someday technology does not work for me",
And the ticket agents reply to me was:
TICKET AGENT> "No, the technology is working fine, you are on the FBI watch list."
That left me speechless, to say the least.
So, he finished checking me in, and I asked:
ME> "So I am on the FBI's watch list?"
TICKET AGENT> "Yep"
TICKET AGENT> "Any one who is on the watch list has to checked by a gate agent, and not the self service things"
ME> Stunned Look on Face
So, I don't know if I have said something here on livejournal that spark it, or what, but now I am on the FBI's watch list according to the Ticket Agent Guy.
So we shall see, I will try and check in coming back from Wichita using the self service things, and if it works, then I will just assume the ticket agent guy was giving me shit. If it does not work, I will be calling the FBI come Monday.
So, that is my update for now. I am at the Albuquerque International Airport using the free wi-fi.
PS, as of right now. My 3:03pm flight from Albuquerque to DFW is delayed by 30 min and my flight from DFW to Wichita is delayed by 30 min also.
EDIT (7/7/05 - 13:58pm) :
So I found some LJ posts that could have caused this, if it was caused by LJ:
I just do not get this country sometimes....
I love other peoples computer screw up's
Set Love Free
Programming Language Inventor or Serial Killer?
And, in the past 2 months or so, I have:
Gotten a new passport, that was expedited.
Been out of the country.
Gotten my first credit card.
Had a lawfirm call me, thinking I was someone else.
Plus, when I made this reservation, the AA.Com system was having major issues, so it might be a fuckup with that. But who knows.... (well, I could think of some key gov people that might know...)
So this could just all be for nothing, but we shall see, as I am flying to Phoenix on the 20th, so that will be the true and final test. If after my I fly to Phoenix, I am still being "watched", then I will deal / worry about it.
