Missed flight

It had to happen sooner or later! Well, I did it. I missed my flight and the following connection.
In Copenhagen all day, I went very early to the airport all fine checked in, no stress. I went to the lounge with my colleague, spent an hour there then went to the gate. After a while, the attendant announced that the aircraft is broken down and we will board by bus to another one, no stress..
At one point, I hear that this is the last call for the flight to Brussels but no one moves and smile as i think it is a recorded announcement. Then, I hear my name for last call… !!!!! I was sitting at B10 for the SAS flight, the SN is at A14, miles apart. I got there too late exhausted along with 3 other passengers. Same alliance, same destination, same time, different airline….
Then, there is this young lady in tears. I take her with me to the counter, trying to calm her down as i see she carries a ventoline spray along. Counter sends us to terminal 2, a good walk away (as in, seriously long). She needs to collect her luggage, I go ahead and rebook my flight for tomorrow. And then…. She arrives with luggage and policemen and she says we are together (together wrong yes, together going to Toulouse but that’s about it!), but Danish policemen are smart and he noticed there was a bug in the story, I went through a quick identity check and she has been taken away.
I am definitely flying tomorrow… Mean time, Denmark for me!
