    I had been visiting my father-in-law just before he died. I rented a car and drove him from Orange County to LA so he could visit a couple of relatives. A couple of days later I was catching the red-eye back to the east coast and as I was clearing out the rental I found a couple of his empty oxygen cylinders under the seat. I didn't dare leave them because I was afraid I'd start a bomb scare. I brought them with me to a customer service gate and explained the situation. They told me I couldn't take them with me and I couldn't leave them at the airport. I ended up calling my wife (who was staying with her dad) at 6:30 am and having her make the hour-15 drive from Laguna to LAX to pick them up for me. (A big thank you to American, who rebooked me on the next flight without charge.)
