So, now I have done it...

And I do not even know what I have done...

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> "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
ME> "OK"

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.

Or there could just be another Kevin M. who just so happens to be an Islamic extremist? I doubt you're really on an FBI watch list, and if you are, it's probably nothing that you said or did that triggered it and is just one of those weird random things. Because we all know you're a nice kid. Or I do, anyway. Hope your trip goes better than the start of it.

Well, so far, its not going well. My flight was scheduled to leave Albuquerque at 3:03 pm, the newest time that I have heard is 6:20 pm. It's only 3 hours later then it should be.

Also, so far my flight going from DFW to Wichita is only delayed an hour, so as it stands my flight leaves DFW half an hour before I am due to get into DFW... GREAT! NOT!

So, I think in half an hour or so I will we walking down the concourse and finding dinner some where.

So much for thinking I was going to be able to eat at DFW.

What was I thinking. lol

Well, I should shut up now,

I don't know what it is lately, but flights into and out of Albuquerque that have connections in Dallas have just not been on time. The last two times I've flown (both back in January) and the last couple of times Dan has flown with connections in Dallas, everything has gone wrong. It's obviously annoying, and I'm sorry you're experiencing it, too.

I hope you didn't eat at the crappy sandwich place. Remembering that Quizno's is down one side of the terminal is a good thing -- they're so much better than the other nasty deli place.

This is the first time I have issue flying out of ABQ. But, ya to Quizno's being down the terminal. It is very much a good thing. I think in the next half hour it will be dinner time for Kevin.

Oh, I thought of another tip now -- make sure they get your luggage right with your delayed flight. Last two flights, I arrived with no luggage. And that was a very bad thing.
Jul. 7th, 2005 04:35 pm (UTC)
Right now, I do not care about my luggage. I am, I do. But I do have my credit card, and there is a wal-mart super center less than a mile from where I am staying, so my old saying of "Have Credit Card, Will Buy" is true in this case, or could be true I should say.
