Holiday travel luck [Dec. 25th, 2004|03:52 pm]
Callicrates
I have miserable luck when I travel at holiday time. Flights get delayed, cancelled, we wind up in the wrong city, it takes 15 hours to go 800 miles... it's a mess.

This year, I'm staying home for Christmas. I told my family that it's at my house this time. When we went to visit willowisp's family at Thanksgiving, the usual mess ensued. I hoped that by staying home I would avoid dealing with it twice.

Well, yes and no. It got the rest of my family instead. They were supposed to arrive here about an hour and a half ago. Instead, they're still sitting in Dallas, on standby for yet another overfull flight. If a minor miracle occurs they'll be here in four hours or so. Personally, I'll be glad if they actually arrive while it's still technically Christmas Day.

I wish this sort of thing would happen to me while I'm on business travel. In that event I have a lot more resources I can throw at the problem.

Happy holidays, folks. Here's hoping the distance between points A and B passes smoothly.

There's a trick, you see.

You need to all live within a few minutes drive of each other. Then if the worst comes to the worst, you can always walk!!!!
