Horrible day

Ok well it all startedyesterday when I went to the airport at 3... AM. We were flying out to Atlanta to then fly out to Aruba for a week. So we gotthere and everything went great all on time and such. Unitl we got on the plane. We ended up sitting there for two hours because apparently there was a big windstorm which dammaged the control tower and the fueling system. So after two hours we finally took off. Not too bad yet? Well to get to Aruba there was a two hour layover so rite when we landed our other flight took off. Well I'll finish the rest of the story later. I have to board for another flight. Thanks

I'm sitting at work and supposed to feel bad that you're going to Aruba?

You're right, what a horrible day for you.

Sounds like you're not going to get much sympathy from us... Interested in hearing the end, doesn't sound so bad so far... pretty normal compared to some of my travels.

It's all a matter of perspective...

Yeah I know it's not that bad but my tank gets tied into this in a bad way too later but at the moment I gotta go. I don't have any time to type on my phone at the moment. I know illbe laughing at this later but until I'm in Aruba with my bags and without a headache I'll be grumpy. And now I can only hope that my tank is still functioning and hasn't crashed. And I still have 5 days of hoping for a healthy tank.
Thanks for giving me a place to vent and write about my angers to hopefully get rid of them.
Thanks again!

Found more time...
So wehrei left off. We missed the connectiong flight. So thenwe had to wait in a line to try to get on another flight. 2 hours later when we get to the desk, we get a grumpy lady that tells us that the only other flight to Aruba is 3hours later and it's fully booked. So we have to go on standby for 5 people. Ok now my sister is nagging me. More story later. Ugh.
Thanks

Right now I am in -25 C temps. While it is frustrating flight delays, can't say I sympathize a ton. LOL
