You know you have been on the road way too many times…
… when you wake up at 3:45am, quickly get ready, rush to the airport, go to the gate and realize you misread the departure time by a clear hour and a half!!
Funny part is when I checked in my bag, as I was exchanging pleasantries with the lady at the desk, she asked “How are you?”. And I said “Way too early”. And she said “Better late than sorry”. I grinned and said “I know”. Actually, I did not know what she was talking about. I was thinking she would sympathize that I had to wake up way too early and might suggest a coffee or something.
Now I know!! Ah! At least, it is Friday.
LOL!! Atleast you will be home on Friday 😀
This is Delta we are talking about Sreerupa. I wouldn’t get my hopes up that quickly 🙂
lucky you – you were just an hour and half early – unlike me showed up a full day early – aah the stories that we gather over the years being on the road 🙂
I actually did show up one day early at Sao Paolo airport. My new admin had missed the math that for me to reach on Saturday, I needed to start on Friday. Unfortunately, I did not miss the math 🙂 Anyways, Delta was able to accommodate me !!
Rajib Roy I am witness to it 🙂
Sanghamitra, that is true!!!
My ” best” story: I turned up to Cork airport a month early for the flight back. Seems travel had booked the wrong month but my itinerary said the right month! There was no flight and no other routing home. So had to get hotel room ( in midst of Cork Jazz festival) and catch first plane in morning….still “better safe than sorry”
Month early??? That absolutely takes the cake!!
I just did exactly this on Wednesday. Felt like a real dork. But the check in person at the Alaska Airlines lounge also said “Better safe than sorry.” Then I left my jacket and keys in the lounge when I left. Not my best performance!
Well it was the same day, so just be happy!
