Default Ok, in lew of posting more in stans thread

I just want to let you all know the he just updated me again.

First call 9:15

He said that sitting on a plane that's going to disney isn't very fun, because its jam packed full of "****ING TEN YEAR OLDS" The woman in front of him is taking valium and drinking vodka and orange juice.

He said if he wasn't in first class he would be trying to flush himself down the toilet.. and yes, thoose were his exact words.
Second call 9:30

I think he is kinda nervous. He said something about that might be the last time anyone ever talks to him. I'm kind of sad.

Third call..9:55
He just called me again to let me know that EVERYONE is off of the plane now and they are waiting for a new one to be pulled around, all of the luggage switched, and all of the passangers to be on board. He said "I should've been in flordia 2 hours ago or something, this sucks"

He also said that most of the people involved are not very happy right now, I can't see why they would be upset.

Oh yea, he also said "chevy chase doesn't have **** on my vacation and we're only 4 hours into it"

Since 1998 I have flown 450,000 miles. It always amazes me that people get mad when the flight is delayed for safety reasons. It sucks being late, but I would rather not risk it.

As CC told me, I fly so much that statistically I will probably die in an airplane.

mmm having Flown at least 200,000 miles this year That is only a slight inconvienence.

I will say that Flying into Orlando, Fort Lauderdale or LA SUCKS! Wayy too many :bdr: screaming their heads off.


But he doens't know Sux until he's on the west coast, needs to be home, Airline calls at 7:00 am (I Have a noon Flight) They're afraid to inform me, that all flights are cancelled today and i'll have to wait until tomorrow. I rent a car, drive to Sacramento, get a flight out....... Get stuck in Denver for 8 hours, get to Chicago, sit in Chicago overnight, get a flight to kzoo at 4:00 pm the next day..... and I was trying to get home to go on vacation



Oh, and it's much more fun when you have 2 failed landing attempts.... wheels touch, then realize there's not enough room to stop, and take off again, twice.

A few weeks ago I was getting on a plane to go to Europe. Some ass hat ran through security. They could not find him. They shut Metro down. EVERYONE had to leave the airport, wait, and come back through the security gate.

FUN FUN FUN
