Shortly after my last post, the plane arrived. We boarded. We sat.

The plane pulled away from the gate. We sat some more. I fell asleep. We sat some more.

The captain made an announcement about the nose of the plane, and something falling off. We pulled back to the gate.

We de-planed (is that REALLY a word??) and returned to the terminal.

We sat. They looked at the plane. We stared at them looking at the plane. We made snarky comments to each other about American Airlines.

They said they couldn't fix it. So we all get new flights on other airlines. I stood in line for approximately 80 minutes to get a new flight. Lest you think I'm exaggerating, one of the flights they tried to put me on began boarding, concluded boarding and TOOK OFF while the airline guy was still trying to book my flight on that plane. Not exactly the express line here... ok?

So finally, I get a flight on USAir. Let me just say... USAir might suck, but they suck SO MUCH LESS than American Airlines... it's almost like they rock. Except for the nonstop airspam... yes that's right, I actually got credit card offers midflight from the flight attendants. Fortunately nobody offered me any valium, viagra or penis enhancement... because that would have been weird.

Comfy seats though...

So after a $40 cab ride (40 BUCKS... WTF?!?!) from the airport to work, I arrived here safe and sound. Except for the part where the cab driver nearly killed us 5 different times because he was messing with his GPS device while driving. No joke.

and now, Monday morning, it's snowing... which is actually kinda cool. Posted on Monday, December 4, 2006 8:41 AM General Interest | Back to top
