Do you know the saying "That ship has sailed?"

Well, in this case, that ship had literally sailed.

This woman was attempting to buy a ticket for a New Year's Eve ferry in Victoria, British Columbia, that had already left, according to Spotted in Victoria's Facebook page and CBC British Columbia.

The ferry was gone and was not at the dock anymore. It was on its way to its next port.

However, she apparently believed if she freaked out like a lunatic the ferry would come back.

Spoiler alert: It didn't.
