|Well, THIS day started badly
||[Jan. 16th, 2005|07:15 am]
Alarm clock set for 4am, to get Erin on a 6:15am flight.
Open my eyes at 6:30am.
I have no idea why the alarm clock didn't go off. But for an extra $100, she is now flying at 10:34am.
If a 10:34am flight had been available at the time I was making her reservations, there is no way I would have scheduled 6:15am. As I recall, at the time the privilege of sleeping until a decent hour was an extra $250.
Thank you, Delta Airlines. Fare Wars are goooood things.
Oohhh yeah... I hate that. Early morning flights are troublesome. When I moved from Vermont to California, I shipped all my boxes and then had to fly because I couldn't afford to rent a truck and move that way. My mom had to accompany me so I could transport my two cats with me on the plane. We had reservations with American West and had everything ready.
Yet, when we arrived... we realized that the print out of the online reservation was a bit different than the other airlines. So different in fact we totally overlooked the departure time. It was to leave at 9, not 11... and we had arrived at 9:30 am. We totally missed it... and there wasn't another flight with American West until the next day. To make reservations on another airline would've cost us a whopping extra $500!
Needless to say, we were stunned. Luckily American West reserved us on the tomorrow flight without an additional charge and helped us find a pet friendly motel to stay at. You got luckier than I did, that's for sure! :)
At least it worked out nicely.
By the way... love that icon! *L*
Made it back to school, although I had a long delay in Dulles. Mrrgh! I don't wanna be back at school!!! I just wanna go plaaaay! This whole maturity thing sucks and I'll have no more of it, thank you.
Ferrett asked you if you had packed your cell phone charger.
I asked if you had packed your cell phone charger.
Guess what we just found.

In its box. Sitting on the desk.
You're a dork.
D'oh! Reminds me of the time my Dad was flying interstate for work: Dad is a terrible packer, so he was up until late the night before, and in his sleepless daze he had set the alarm clock for P.M., not A.M. He'd mentioned something about 8am, and I was sure he said that was when he had to leave the house. I was up early to get to work at my Saturday job, but since he was always good at getting going quickly, I wasn't too concerned that it was 7am and he wasn't awake. I became concerned pretty quickly when I heard repeated toots of a horn outside, and realised that it was the taxi waiting to take Dad to the airport. Turns out the flight left at 8am. So, of course, it was my unpleasant task to wake him up, let him know the time, and let him know that the taxi was waiting. I've never seen him move so fast - he was "dressed" and out the door in less than 2 minutes (I think he put his socks on in the cab).
