Airline {In a warm, syrupy prerecorded voice}: Your flight from Reno to Chicago was due to depart in an hour. We took the liberty of canceling that flight just a few minutes ago. You needn't thank us now, but we made arrangements to complete your trip by rerouting you via Portland, Maine late tomorrow. It will add only a few hours in a crowded plane to your vacation!! And have a great day!!

Jim (to wife): "Crap. The airline just handed us a modified Cleveland Steamer."
