Susan Decker was one of the lucky ones.
She and the rest of us learned tonight that just because you have a ticket doesn't mean you're guaranteed a seat. Simply ask the mighty unhappy folks who had tickets to see Sara Lawrence-Lightfoot at Victoria Hall and couldn't get in tonight.
Car-man reminded me that rental agencies are the same way. Having a reservation for a certain car doesn't mean that you're going to get that car at that price because that car may not even be on the lot! (Remember Neil--Steve Martin--in Planes, Trains, and Automobiles?).
If you know the rules ahead of time, you less likely to want to throw the ticket-taker or rental agent out the window.
