Should you get a call prior to boarding, simply leave the pax terminal and take a cab to Fedex Ops. (no checked baggage)
Concur and have done the same... But make sure you call scheduling and let them know you are on the CELL PHONE!

And YOU asked someone else when they were going to graduate from elementery school! Trying to equate FHs attempt to scroo his over 60 buddies, with a guy trying to make it home early is a stretch even for your stilted cranium.
