I'm away at a conference next week. I set up my hotel reservation and such back in early September. This morning I find out that the conference hotel is overbooked, so they've transferred my reservation for the first night to a different hotel at the airport instead of the conference hotel. So much for any plans to get together with people that evening or sleep until a reasonable hour the next morning.
"We apologize for the inconvenience" has to be one of the least meaningful sentences in the English language.
