I recently flew from the East Coast to the West. When I arrived at the airport, I checked in with the airline ticket clerk. "I have a middle seat, but would like to switch to an aisle seat. Would that be possible?"
She said, "Let me see. Oh, good, I have one for you. They're not easy to get. They go like hot cakes, but I did find one for you."
"Aisle?" I said.
"No," she said, "window."
So much for speaking in plane English.
