JESUS FUCKING CHRIST ON A POTATO BOAT aka ADVENTURES IN AIR TRAVEL

I was supposed to be in California yesterday. Instead I’m at the Atlanta Airport. The last two days went something like this:

July 3rd

  • Woke up at 3 am
  • Took flight to Washington Dulles 
  • Found out the hard way that Dulles is a chaotic nightmare on a REGULAR day
  • It was a holiday week
  • Original connection flight canceled
  • More than six transfers to find a flight with enough room
  • More
  • than 
  • six
  • transfers
  • nezumiko, saunterleftside, and ninjaeyecandy kept me sane as I sprinted from one end of Dulles to the other, continually thwarted by that damned OVERSOLD FLIGHT sign.
  • OVERSOLD FLIGHT
  • OVERSOLD FLIGHT
  • OVERSOLD FLIGHT
  • fuck
  • OVERSOLD MOTHERFUCKING GOAT-LICKING FLIGHT
  • Seriously. I tried to connect to flights to San Diego, Los Angeles, and even tried to re-route through Chicago O’Hare.
  • OVERSOLD FLIGHT.
  • At this point I’d been stranded in Dulles for over six hours.
  • Finally I gave up and switched airlines. 
  • That helped a lot. I actually got on the damn plane this time. Connecting flight from Dulles to Atlanta to San Francisco
  • Then the pilot announced that we’d been delayed for a half-hour
  • And another half-hour
  • Aaannnddd another half-hour, folks
  • Finally we got off the ground 3 hours late
  • And then
  • we arrived
  • in Atlanta
  • just in time
  • for me to miss my connecting flight
  • by five minutes
  • Delta gave me a voucher for a hotel, so I wasn’t completely stranded
  • Then
  • when I got my hotel room
  • The door wouldn’t open because it was BROKEN
  • CUE WAITING AN HOUR FOR THE REPAIRMEN

July 4th

  • Wake up at 4:30
  • Catch the 5 am shuttle back to airport
  • TRIP AND FALL IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SECURITY LINE
7.46:56 AM
