Another first when it comes to delayed flights…

I have had flights get delayed for pretty much every conceivable reason. Or so I thought, till now.

Sitting on a very early flight to Chicago. Everybody on board and doors all closed. But the pilot just came on the PA and announced that we are going to be delayed in pulling out of the gate. Apparently, we do NOT have enough bags!

Did you know that? There needs to be a minimum weight of bags in the cargo hold? Or is it a balance issue? We are now waiting for 400 pounds of ballast to arrive to be loaded.

I did my good day’s job though – checked in my 7 pound overnighter. Apparently, I did not pack enough 🙂

(I like checking in my bag so that I do not have to fight for overhead bin space; I love being one of the last persons to get onboard).

Speaking of odd sleeping habits…

… actually nobody was talking about sleeping habits. I just realized that this has been one of those weeks for me…

Sunday – slept in Eastern Time Zone (Atlanta)
Monday – slept in Pacific Time Zone (San Francisco)
Tuesday – slept in Mountain Time Zone (Denver)
Wednesday – going to bed in Central Time Zone (Chicago)

At this rate, I am afraid, I might find myself tomorrow in Alaska or Guam since I am running out of time zones…
