The Wrong Line
Anyone that has ever gone to the grocery, McDonalds, Library, or anywhere that you have to stand in a line will know that I ALWAYS pick the wrong line.....without fail. Today was no different!
I arrived at SEA airport with way too much time on my hands. Something about feeling like I always need to be early put me at the airport at the crack of dawn today. I enjoyed a nice Starbucks breakfast of oatmeal (yummy) and have now consumed two venti cups of coffee. During breakfast I chatted with a young man curious about my Eee PC.
Arriving at my gate, there was a long line at the desk and a pretty full seating area. I stepped into the line to ask if they were looking for volunteers to take a later flight. I finally got to the desk shortly after an announcement asking for volunteers! Yeah....my lucky day. I have tried this on numerous occasions and have never actually gotten 'bumped'. Since I dont have anywhere that I have to be by any certain time (except to Mom's for dinner), I figured that today was the day.
Arriving at the counter, I got the most inexperienced attendant that I ever could have gotten She got me 'off-loaded' from my flight and was having all sorts of trouble getting me booked onto the next flight. The other attendant at the counter checked through THREE people and I am still standing there waiting for this lady to get me onto a flight. I really didn't care WHICH flight at this time....just book me on a flight before they are ALL sold out! I am thinking the whole time that although I dont mind taking a later flight, I certainly dont want to spend ALL DAY at the airport...
So, I am finally sitting at my new gate....waiting to board with a FREE ROUNDTRIP ticket in my hot little hands!!!! YEAH....
Maybe I will get lucky on my flight home too....
A mom with TOO many kids (there are four of them, all boys. They have sat quietly the whole time I have been typing)
One other person on laptop
2 People eating
3 on cell phone
4 reading the paper
5 staring at nothing in particular
8 staring at the idiot box (that would be the TV)
Flight is getting ready to board and I need to go to the bathroom....update you soon.
