The “Delta” between seeing and believing…

Apparently seeing is believing no more. This is in Dayton, OH. Note that the board helpfully points out that the flight to Detroit has been delayed from 10.21 am to 10.27 am. Funny part? It is 11:44 am now (see at he bottom of the board).

Even funnier? We are boarding now thru that gate. We are headed to Minneapolis!! The display as well as the sign above the door says “Detroit”!! I asked the gate agent as I boarded – “it says Detroit”. She nonchalantly said “I know” as she flagged me in to the plane.

This was one of those classic moments when, upon greeted by a ferocious looking dog relentlessly barking at me as I stood frozen at the gate of my friend’s house in Durgapur wondering what to do, my friend’s dad came out and reassured me the dog was harmless. In fact, his admonishing words were “Have you not heard that barking dogs seldom bite?”. I believe I had shot back with a “I have. Question is – has the dog heard it”?

I walked into the plane wondering “Does the pilot know?”
