I posted my travel horror story...Here it is again:

On Friday night I was supposed to fly into Detroit for spring break.

I get to the airport and they say that the flight is overbooked.

I go to the booth and tell the guy that I'll give up my seat--the reason I do this is because Northwest will drive me to Dallas, give me a free hotel, give me two free meals, put me on the first flight to Detroit, and give me a free ticket for another flight within the next year.

He sends me to the Northwest ticket counter so I can get my vouchers for a free cab ride, free meals, and free hotel room, as well as my ticket for the flight on Saturday.

I go downstairs to wait for a cab. The cab pulls up and I told him I needed to get to the DFW Airport. The cabby asks me how I'm paying, and I give him the voucher. He's upset, he wants cash. He turns the cab around and we go talk to the Northwest people. The guy at the Northwest counter explains to him how the voucher works, and we go on our way.

About 15 miles from the Oklahoma/Texas border, traffic comes to a complete stop. It takes us about 2 hours to get across the border. What caused it? I-35 went from a 2 lane to 1 lane expressway. There weren't even that many people on the road.

Finally, we get to the DFW Airport. What was supposed to be a 3 hour drive ended up being about 6 hours. When I get there at 10:30, the ticket counter is closed, and there is no one in the airport.

I call the hotel that I'm supposed to be staying at, and they don't want to take the voucher. They want me to pay in cash or use a credit card. I have no cash on me and I don't have a credit card. I look in my laptop case, and see that I am missing my vouchers for the free meals and hotel, AND my ticket for the flight.

I have no place to stay for the night, it's 11:30 and the ticket counter doesn't open until 4:30am. I find an electric outlet and plug my laptop in. I watch a 75 minute documentary and play Madden football. It's now 1:30 and I don't know what else to do. I lay down on the chairs and fall asleep until 4. I was freezing cold (perhaps because I hadn't eaten since 1:30pm and because I was only wearing shorts and a t-shirt). At about 4:00 people started showing up so I waited by the NWA ticket counter.

When the self check in machines turn on, I go over and punch in my confirmation number. It doesn't work--since it was the number for my OKC flight. I go up to the counter and they print off my boarding pass. I think I'm set to go. She asks me where my ticket is. I tell her that I think I lost it in the cab. She tells me to call the cab company. I call them and they are no help. She calls them and they are no help.

I have to wait until 5am until her supervisor arrives. They were able to print me off another ticket. I get through security without any troubles, but now it's only 5:30. My flight doesn't leave until 9:06, so I have 3 hours to wait.

I grab something to eat at the Burger King and walk around the terminal. I find there's a TV by the gate and watch CNN's nonstop coverage of the courthouse shooter. I also sleep a little bit and talk to a soldier going home to Flint.

Finally I get on the plane and go home. I proceeded to sleep so deeply that I didn't hear the phone ring or my parents come home.

Then I said that I wouldn't be caught dead in Burnt Orange or that other orange that OSU wears.

Miss Jenn said that the OSU orange was beautiful and that the cool chicks wore it.

I quoted her, changed orange to crimson and creme, and posted a Sooner Heaven picture.

Also, Genie determined the county I live in and said that her bestest-est friend lived there.

So I asked if I was her bestest-est friend. I don't think she saw it before the hacker got us again. Evil or Very Mad

And the moral of the story is: If it sounds to good to be true it prolly is.

I got intensely personal and inquired as to peep's favorite TV shows from 1984 and 1988.

That's time I wish I'd saved in a bottle....

If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I'd like to do
Is to save every day
Till Eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you
