So, I finally land in Atlanta and am faced with a 2 hour layover, which wasn't listed on the itinerary that I booked, it was only about 75 minutes at that point. I have a $19 meal (before tip) of a hamburger (the server took my plate away before I could enjoy my pickle) and a Dos Equis bottle (no fruit). Great. They changed my gate about three times. I finally get the right gate after sitting in at two different gates (I did get to read the Enquirer for free, so that was nice) I purchase a $5 magazine that is really not that great of a read, but has a few good recipes in it, so that's at least SOMETHING, only to discover that my flight has been pushed back AGAIN.
I am now scheduled to depart at 11:45 p.m. Eastern time. I should get to PBI around 1:30 a.m. A mere TWO hours after I was scheduled to land. Of course, they laid the guilt trip down when they told us it was a weather delay. The incoming flight was sitting on the runway for 3 hours. I think that would have pissed me off more than 2 hours sitting in the ATL. Then again, the humidity here seeps into the airport. Ugh. Makes me miss the desert even more.
The headphones I have apparently aren't really good for flights. I could barely hear my mp3 player, so big shout out to passenger I. Sidden for leaving the latest Time magazine in the front seat pocket. I finished the NYT and didn't want to crack open my Pizza Today just yet, owing to the next flight where I would need SOMETHING to read other than the sky mall catalog.
Hopefully the morning brings better tidings.
