I made it home.

I made it home. But to do so, I had to abandon the airline altogether.

When I arrived in Charlotte Friday evening, a mere two hours late, my connecting flight had left me. The next one wasn’t for twenty-four hours, and it was full. There was another on Sunday, but it was full. There were seats available on Monday, if I wanted to wait, and perhaps they could fit me on one of the earlier flights. Three days, they said, to make it from Charlotte to Athens. So I rented a car and drove it in three hours.


  1. Your recent airline experience does not bode well for those of us planning to trek to Georgia in the spring for a certain party…glad you made it home okay.

  2. Next time you’re stuck in Charlotte - let me know! You can always stay at my place… :)

  3. Wow, your travel experience was quite nasty! I’ve had few experiences that could rival that one!
