I had just happened to overhear the girl at the counter saying that she wanted to go to break/eat right as I ran up to the terminal. So I made it very clear that they had messed up (and there wasn't much she could do to argue that fact) and made it also clear that she and I were going to be best buddies standing right there until she either found me a seat on another flight or we waited for her manager to show up for her to explain why they had screwed up so badly. And not a standby slot, a full on ticket in my hand seat.
She suddenly found me a ticket after that. It required going to another city that only added about 15 minutes to my final drive so it was acceptable.
