Setting the Scene: The gate attendant has called for certain rows to board. The plane has almost entirely boarded already and there are exactly 3 people in line, in this order: (1) curly haired guy (2) Karin (3) Andrea.
Curly haired guy: [hands boarding pass to lady]
America West attendant: [loudly] "I'm sorry sir, but this is group 5. We have NOT called your group to board yet"
Curly: "Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't notice." [then steps aside] [Karin marches forward]
America West attendant: [walks to intercom, pulls down walkie-talkie and announces] "We are NOW boarding groups 4 AND 5"
Karin: [tries to hand her boarding pass, but is motioned away by controlling American West attendant]
Curly: Re-hands lady the same boarding pass from 3 seconds ago and then walks on plane.
Karin (to America West Attendant): "Um....did that really just happen?"
America West nazi: [none too pleased]
