Missing in Minnesota

Foggy Sunset

Missing Sue once again, I find it hard to sleep. Sue was supposed to return from Minnesota early Thursday afternoon but Delta Airlines, With their slogan " We don't give a damn and it shows" screwed her and about 70 other passengers over. She had a flight out at 3 o'clock that got delayed due to weather. Delta informed everyone it would depart at 8 pm.

The 5 and 7 o'clock flights for Atlanta left on time. Come 8 o'clock they were all told the flight had now been canceled and the next flight would at 10:30 Friday morning. Thanks, Delta for making everyone wait at the airport for nothing! They gave no food or lodging vouchers, you were left on your own. The agent did tell Sue he had booked on the 10:30 flight. He just forgot to tell her it was with another airline.

She showed up to catch the flight and they couldn't find her name. Finally some looked and saw she was booked on Northwest (at the other end of the airport). Sue hustled down there but guess what - not in their computer either. It seems the Delta agent forgot to transfer the information. Of course this flight is overbooked but Sue's high flight miles pay off and she gets a seat. The Northwest people are very friendly and helpful. (and Delta wonders why they're struggling)

She finally gets home about 3 pm and I get to see her about 5:30 after I get out of dialysis. We eat dinner and she is worn out so we go to sleep.

Sue is up early this morning to pack for her trip for Orlando. She leaves the house at 11 o'clock. She has been home for 19 hours (about 10 of those asleep and two showering and packing for this trip). Wow, isn't travel fun!

So, I'm missing her and she's missing me and Miss Kitty. Hopefully she'll be back late Tuesday evening but She had to fly Delta again, so who knows!

You have to spend time with just Miss Kitty for company so much of the time, don't you. But how your wife must thrill to return home to you and your appreciation of her.

Oh dear, what a journey! Good to know about Delta, I've never been on one of their planes and now that I know, I never will (if I can avoid it). :)
