My mom called me a few minutes ago to ask if I was flying this weekend. I said “yes, I’m flying to Seattle via Washington.” I guess I live in my own little world (at least this week), as I hadn’t heard of the crazy snow storm that was supposed to hit Washington tomorrow. Of course our reactions were opposite.
I immediately said “yes, I can’t wait,” while she said “you shouldn’t go, you’ll get stuck there.” Little does she realize the beauty of irregular operations, of course!
I’m booked on the 9AM Tampa to Washington flight, which is the first of three flights tomorrow. It now shows as zeroed out, while the other two have been canceled. I’m on the afternoon Washington to Seattle flight, which now shows as zeroed out, while the later flight shows as canceled. So as long as my flight isn’t canceled, I’d say I have a pretty good shot at a bump. I guess I could go for a more direct routing thanks to the travel waiver United has in place, but what’s the fun in that? It’ll be straight to the eye of the storm for me, as idiotic as it might be on my part. At the very least it should make for some entertaining blogging. 😉
Any words of wisdom, other than “Lucky, you’re an idiot?”
