I turned up late for checkin on a budget flight once. No bags, no boarding pass, a couple of minutes after the deadline for checking in. If I'd printed the pass at home it would have been fine, but I was stupid. Went to the desk, was very polite, they ummed-and-arred for a while, phoned through to check with someone that I'd have time to board, and eventually printed my boarding pass. Once I passed security I saw the plane was delayed by 2 hours.

Yes, quite right. Let's have something a bit more modern, shall we?

"An innocent man was viciously beaten and then burned to death by vigilante neighbours who wrongly believed rumours that he was a paedophile."
