Britney, The Diva? - Trish Stratus
This doesnt happen often these days with how tight security is at airports, but there was this one time when few of the guards asked me for a couple of my autographs and to post for some pictures with them. I was only trying to be nice by signing and all, but I ended up inadvertently creating quite a buzz in the place.
The entire walk to the gate, people were asking for my autograph, which led to even more people coming up to me, I even got a few, Can I have your autograph? Thanks so who are you anyway?
When I finally got to the gate, I grabbed a seat and was immediately approached by two security guards and an official-looking guy, who asked me if I'm okay or if I need any assistance. Just as I was telling them I was okay and it was no big deal, a group of kids headed my way to get an autograph.
After I finished signing all of their stuff, the official guy asked how long until my flight. A little over an hour. Great, come with me. So he took me up some elevator, into a lounger, and made sure I was comfortable. He asked if he could get me a cool beverage and within minute a woman brought me over the Diet Coke I requested. The official-looking guy told me to relax, that hell come get me before my flight.
He left and the woman who brought me the Diet Coke came back over to me, this time asking to see my boarding pass. She returned with a bowl of mixed nuts and a new boarding pass with a new seat -- in first class!
Wow! This is great! I can get used to this living. So I chill for an hour, read my book, and indulge in snacks until the official-looking guy returns, accompanied by the two security guys who first approached me, they took the back way to the gate. We preboarded the plane so I could get settled before anyone else comes on.
This was all so incredible. The service, the luxury, I couldn't believe what they did for me. I thanked my newly founded entourage and shook their hands as I said my good-byes. You're very welcome, it's our pleasure, they said. We're huge fans of yours, Ms. Spears.
