This morning at CLT I was the only one in line so of course that meant the floating talker tried to strike up a conversation.
TSO: “Good morning”
TSO: “So, where are you off to today”
Me: (in an overwhelmed/distressed tone) “Oh, I don’t even know, it’s too early”
TSO: Tried to give me some words of wisdom, but luckily didn’t push the issue further since I just wanted to get through and get to Starbucks.
In the past I’ve tried the (matter of fact tone) “I’m not telling you” or “It’s right here on my boarding pass” or just made up a city, but that usually sours them and they come back with more questions.
