About a month ago I had to fly to Ottawa to present at a conference. It was a short trip but I felt that I got a lot accomplished. A few weeks later my wife noticed my receipts and ticket stubs sitting on the kitchen table (as I am notorious for not doing my expense reports in a timely manner). To her surprise she noticed that my ticket stub for my flight from Ottawa to Toronto had the passenger name of Rudd on in instead of mine. This alarms me for a few reasons. Not only did I:
1) Check-in via the Air Canada website,
2) Show up at the ticket counter, have them ask for my ID, and have them issue me my ticket,
3) Go through the airport screening where they checked my ticket and my ID,
4) Have the attendant verify my ID and ticket before allowing me on the plane,
THEY ALLOWED ME TO BOARD WITH THE WRONG NAME ON MY TICKET!
Which really makes me wonder…what happened to poor Mr. Rudd? Maybe I just have a much more honest face than I thought.
