CUSS Self Check In (another unfortunate acronym)
If you have been to an airport, you have probably experienced at least one moment when you feel like cussing. Are the new ticket machines encouraging it now?
Actually, CUSS here stands for “Common Use Self Service” wherein multiple airlines use the same airport kiosks (ticket machines) in order to save money. Not sure why they don’t capitalize the acronym – it makes native speakers do a double take…
