Baggage (mis)handlers at various airports across the country have finally managed to totally fuck the locks on my very expensive suitcase due to the constant re-opening and incorrect re-closing of my bag, necessitated by the endless “Security checks” that go on when you travel these days and have to check luggage. It was especially exciting when all of my shit fell out onto the rain soaked pavement as I got into my cab at LaGuardia. Thanks, assholes.
Right now, we’re in the early stages of a full on blizzard here in NYC. Normally, I’d be all about the snow. But today is one of the busiest holiday travel days of the year. So I say, “Fuck the snow.” American Airlines has already canceled my 2:15 flight to Burbank and if I’m very lucky I’ll make it out on a flight leaving after 8:00 PM tonight, getting me in to LAX around Midnight. At least it’s a direct flight. Now…if it can just get out of NYC I’ll be happy. And snow will be off my shit list.
