This morning at Fort Lauderdale, I noticed that the ticket agent at this
location has been permantely abolished.
All tickets have to be purchased from the vending machines.
I don't really care, I tried to buy a ticket from the agent a few months
back and he said he was closed to buy one from the machine. I never
bothered with the agent after that.
I always figured that the more tickets that the agents could show that they
were selling, the better chance of keeping their job on but this particular
individual did not seem to care about his job anyway. Now it is gone.
