I once was in a rush and drove like a mad man to get to the airport an hour away. Rushed up to the kiosk to print my ticket - and it wouldn't work. Went to the counter, where the agent politely told me that I was at PVD and my flight was departing from BOS. Thankfully she got me on a flight from Boston...

I took the Eurostar from London to Paris. Coming back I showed up at the train station a good hour and a half early, only to find my train just pulling out. After I testily asked the ticket agent why the train left early, she said it left right on time. I showed her my ticket and pointed out the time on it. She explained to me that I was looking at the arrival time in London, and for the whole three days I was there I had not realized that Paris was in a different time zone.
