#4: An Unfortunate Misunderstanding
When you’re not sure you’ve heard someone right the first time, it’s always better to ask them to repeat what they said rather than pretend you’ve heard it. Yes, asking someone to repeat what they said – especially airport security – might be a bit awkward, but not nearly as awkward as putting your face on the license scanner.
Asking someone to repeat what they said is considered rude and we honestly don’t understand why. If this girl would’ve just asked this officer to repeat his request, she would’ve saved herself some embarrassment. On the other hand, now she has a funny story to share around the dinner table, so maybe it wasn’t all bad.
