How to sneak into business class and get caught - or - I have never been on a packed plane like this one before

During his last couple of flights my other half always sneaked into business class somehow. I told him I was not gonna do it and he forced me to on our first part of the trip from Hannover to Frankfurt. I was so scared. They said boarding was complete and I was like phew. WRONG! One of the flight attendents comes over to us and asks to see our ticket because they head-counted and got a number that was off by two. What a coincident..... Yes, we had to change our seats. It was OK. I went to sleep right after take-off.
We actually had not booked our tickets together, so the seats we got for the second part of the flight were not next to each other and the lady in Hannover could not do a lot. In Frankfurt we had to go to the transfer center but they were b*tches about it and said it was not possible. Aaron fixed it later. So much for that. lol
Our flight was fine, seats more or less sucked, but other than that..... Way too long.
OK, so we get to Dallas and I was told that from now on I could stay in line with the residents and citizens, which was wrong as we found out as we got to the end of the line.
So I had to get in line again, in a very long lane now, to show my passport and all that. As I got to the counter and presented my immigration package they were really nice. The officer looked through all my things and then took me and my package to the very end of the hall. There were two counters with officers, who are I guess in charge of the immigration visa reviews. I had to wait for a couple of minutes, give my finger print, sign and then we went through the information, so the card will be send to the right address.
Aaron was already waiting with our luggage and everything went fine!
Oh, in Hannover my dad (I miss you) gave me a video which was made at the party on which everyone that had been at the party said something to me. Very nice! We watched it in Frankfurt to kill some time. Thanks guys. Bestest surprise so far!!!!!

So now I am a legal resident of the United States of America!
