It happened to me.

Back in 2006 I was flying LAX-BOS. I got to LAX early and my BP said the gate would be 40B. I went to the Admirals Club and ended up staying later than I expected. I went to the gate and bypassed the line there to board as a Platinum and didn't look at the departure monitor. The machine beeped "WRONG FLT" but they told me it was an error and to board anyway. Someone sat next to me in a New York Yankees hat and I remarked "that's a dangerous hat to be wearing on a flight to Boston". She looked at me like I was the biggest moron in the world and said "this flight is going to Miami".

Thankfully, I got off the plane in a hurry and still made the BOS flight.
