Lets see, how could it get worse? I woke up to this: NO fucking hot water! And my strep throat has returned-I should have taken the shot of penicillin instead of the Keflex, I guess. We’ll see how easy it is to get a prescription filled in Mobile, Al. Waiting 20-30 minutes to get it filled should add a nice chunk of change to the 1 hour, 40 minute cab ride to the hotel I have been stupidly booked into, ignoring the fact that there are 342 hotels within 1 mile of the airport. At least this high fever is keeping me happy and I’ve got all day to wander around Alabama. Now, do I pay 4 bucks for an hour on the Internet, or do I wait until this afternoon when I get it for free at the hotel? Decisions, decisions.
After a sleepless night and the pain of leaving my friends and family, I have to endure AIR TRAVEL. I know, everyone thinks, TSA, restrictions, security, lines and all that. No. All that is good and tolerable and is a small price to pay. Granted, the current security would NOT have stopped the reason we have the current security issues, but it’s still the right thing to do and not at all difficult if you stay current on the restrictions and take a small amount of time and effort to BE PREPARED.
No, what I hate are the fucking “mohans” (Nod to daughter) who have no common sense, no courtesy and think that they are more important than the other 15 million people traveling today. Every time I fly, I have to grit my teeth and fight the urge to do violence on some of these fuckwits. I called out one today and people stared and grumbled at him the whole fucking flight. HA!
Slop a shitty airline on top of that and you get one pissed off fucking pirate, stuck in a hotel that resides in a completely different state from the one that his favorite airline stranded him in and sprinkle in a little non-smoking hotel rule and a fucking hair in his cold, hour-old, mozzarella stick from Arbys and it has been a bad fucking day. All this and I’m still two days, a shuttle ride, two flights, two taxis and a crew boat away from getting to work. Fucking-A, how was your commute, today?
