I’m just sitting here watching the planes go ’round and ’round

I currently sitting during a 1.5 hour delay on my plane to arrive so that I can fly back to Detroit. Training went well here. The students seemed to get a lot out of it. At the end of it all, I was saying, "I’m lovin’ it!" My training ended at 4PM, but I had a 6PM plane, so I had to run out of there and drive my rental car back. Then, I had to get a shuttle to the airport, get through the security checkpoint, then run across the airport to get to my gate. (Isn’t that always the way…) As I got closer to the gate, I started looking at the monitors to make sure I even had the right gate. (I’ve done that before.) The first said that the delay was 10 minutes late. The next one said 20 minutes. The third one said 30. By the time I got to the gate, it was going to be 45 minutes late. I walked back to the main concourse and got a bite to eat. Now, I wait…

I wish that the airline would offer dinner vouchers, free tickets (I really need these), or at least free internet access. This is a pain. I’m missing the rest of my pride.

It looks like we may start boarding in about 10 minutes. Hopefully this will all work itself out….
