He explained to the porter, “I’m a really heavy sleeper, but I want you to be sure to wake me up at 3:00am for the stop in Buffalo. I don’t care what I say, you just make sure I get off the train in Buffalo”.

He was furious.
He found the porter and really gave him an earful before heading off to purchase a return ticket back to Buffalo.

“That’s nothing”, said the porter, “you should have heard the guy who I put off the train in Buffalo!”
