More Travel Fun

Last weekend I was on the road again.  Had to hit the office to do some work (which led to an entire week of fixing things and thus no time to blog about the trip) then seeing the kids, and of course the annual Oscar party which is always a delight.

As per usual  I tried to take notes while in the zoos known colloquially as airports.   Enjoy.

*****

Amazing how many people show up late to the airport and depend on the kindness of strangers to let them cut the line.

Seriously Logan... One security lane open?  One??? *sigh*

Tried to get food. Sadly lunch is not available until. 11am. Will have to wait 30 min. Don't want breakfast.

Power outlet fun at Logan.

Lady next to me is loudly complaining about being stuck in the middle seat. Not sure what anyone is supposed to do about it.  Her husband keeps saying he’ll be happy to trade seats with her. Then she says "No No you already sat in the middle seat on the flight out, it’s my turn”. Okay then… time to shut up about it.  

Nice not having the harping about turning off electronics before take off.

My heavens the woman next to me is antsy. I thought I had a hard time sitting still!!! She also takes up quite a bit of room. If she was taller I would have had an elbow in my face a moment ago.  

Chicago totally cloud covered. No pics. Oh well.  

Return trip

Car rental return... man with the white winter coat.  I am all admiration! Whenever I try to wear white I get it dirty immediately.  Not only are you wearing a long white winter coat... it is clean.  I bow to you!

No seats at the wine bar but I outwitted them and had a glass of wine at Chili’s.

Boarding went well. This can not go unpunished. A small mechanical issue has delayed the flight. So far 10 min late. Not bad... Yet.

And we luck out - only a 20 minute delay.  Excellent.

Arrived Logan.  Have to say, it was worth it to pay slightly more for my seats so I could get on and off the plane easier.  Can’t afford first class, but early boarding, that I can do.

Totally oblivious man waiting for his ride. Dumps bags in middle of door walkway. Proceeds to leave them as he wanders around talking on his cell. Keeps walking past door sensor. Open, close, open, close… let’s bring in LOTS of cold air. Finally his ride arrives and he dithers back and forth over which bags go where while the car blocks the bus lane. Good job all around dude!

Slowest shuttle bus driver… ever. I suppose the guy is being careful, but wow.  

And back to car.  It’s there, it starts.  All is good.
