We haven’t had one of these for a while, and I had to have this conversation a lot recently. What are the common things about your job(s) that most people get wrong?

My flight out of Denver was supposed to leave almost an hour ago. I actually made it onto the plane, and I almost made it all the way to my seat before we were all told to disembark because of mechanical difficulties.
