Ever have a 3-4-5 hour ‘lay-over’ at an airport, with nothing to do? Try this.
Head over to the ‘Community Service Phone,’ and page yourself to a certain gate. Example: “Could you ask Bob Holliker to come to Gate 63, please?” Then hang out a bit, to see who shows up. On occasion, it actually works!
Another thing I used to do was, to page, “Any Friend of Bill Wilson.” (Code for another member of AA.) This also worked upon occasion, but it could “un-nerve” the guy who showed up – when I was wearing my airline costume! (Hard not to “play with” that one, if you know what I mean!)
