My first flight today was scheduled to leave around 4. My dad had a follow-up doctor visit at 1:30. Some asswipes in the UK exploded an SUV or something at an airport. Added up, it meant being dropped off at the airport around 1 and leaving my parents' place around 12:30.

At 11am, my dad comes in, dressed and ready to go. My mom asks what time we're leaving. I think this is the 5th or 6th time she's asked. Translation: we want to leave earlier.
Me: How about a little before 12:30.
Mom: OK.

That's OK as in "OK, we'll leave at 12:15, unless we leave earlier." We were in the car at 12:15. Fiddled with the GPS for 5 minutes. Got to the airport at 12:40. Fortunately, I would the new security procedures to slow me down.

The new security procedure was: after showing your ID at the security line, you had to show your ID at the security line again. Wow, do I feel safer.
