Oh, meant to say I really hate the spiel too. I've usually got this harried look on my face and wish them good day and say (before they have yet to open their mouths) that I'm DREADFULLY sorry but I'm in a wicked hurry as I have been delayed. Could they PLEASE process my paperwork as fast as humanely possible. Then I give them a trembly smile and the most pititful look I can muster. I hand them my copy of the reservation and say I'm having the GPS and the gasoline buy up, does that help to move things along???

Works like a charm.
