To The Airport

"There's nothing half so pleasant as coming home again."

To The Airport,

You know, I was going to write a letter, complaining about my most recent visit to you. Complaining about how I had booked a connecting flight, but you canceled the second half of it, leaving me stranded on the other side of the country. Complaining about how I had to spend an hour and a half on hold just to rebook it. About how I waited another four hours just to check-in for that new flight, and about how when I went to go check-in, I found out you had booked me for one a full day later than I had asked. And then, to top it all off, I had to rebook again to a different airport, where my car was not, rent a car and drive three hours to go get it, just to drive another two hours home. Basically, to complain about how all I wanted to do was go home, but I was stuck with you, because of your incompetence. But now I am home, and I guess I just really don't care how long it took me to get here. It feels good to be back, thank you for making it possible.

  1. OH! Complain and demand free stuff!

  2. I second the demanding of free stuff! lol

  3. What a mess! I mean at least you are taking it in stride. I would be hysterical (maybe not visible to the general public but inside I would be overwhelmed with anxiety) so happy you made it home safe and sound :)

  4. I went through that, ordering a cell phone. I didn't get what I wanted, at the price they advertised. They sent me a completely different phone. But complaining WORKS! I'm getting the phone for nothing (well, taxes) after talking to about a dozen people.
