So What's Going On?

My friend Nikki, 34, is a traveling snake oil saleswoman. She has to go to Texas frequently, and always seems to have problems getting out of there. Her latest trip has her stuck in Houston since like 1997.

I called her this morning to find out what's going on after seeing the following email from ol' girl Nik.

A little story...

Girl travels to TX for work. Girl has a flight out of Austin at 5:45pm. Girl sees a flight delay until 7:30. Girl has many flight delays out of TX. Girl's flight out of Austin was cancelled because of no flight crew. Girl then rents a car, finds another flight out of Houston, drives 2 1/2 hours to Houston, spends the night in a Hotel, goes to the wrong airport, takes a cab to the right airport, just makes checkin for her 7:30am flight, gets to the gate and ... you guessed it, flight delayed. Someone up there hates me!!!

There's nothing more frustrating than getting screwed by the airlines. Your only option is to just sit there, wait, and take it. It stinks.

That's why I go everywhere by bus. Even Europe which is a hell of a drive let me tell you.
