I know you've all seen this, but you should watch it again. I think it should be required viewing for all travelers.
I'm flying to Florida today to spend Passover with the family. I was going to bitch because the airline called me before I left home to tell me the flight was on time, and then, my cab disobeyed the laws of nature and got me to the airport so fast that I was checked in 10 minutes before I left home and then the airline called me again to let me know the flight would be delayed for an hour.
The fact is, I left home this morning, and I'll arrive in Florida some time tonight after sitting in a chair in the sky traveling 500 mph! I'll get there the same day. The wheel on my Conestoga wagon will not break. We won't be attacked by Sioux warriors or taken advantage of by ex-Confederate soldiers trying to make a buck off of naive settlers. It won't take 6 months to get where I'm going and it's doubtful that everybody on the plane will come down with some horrible disease and die before we get there.
So, this is me, shutting the fuck up about how horrible it is to travel by air. (I'll also sit here enjoying the texts Tania is sending me about pygmy marmosets stowing away in my luggage.)
(BTW, as mentioned in the comment thread two posts back, there's still one more chocolate sampler up for grabs. All you have to do is say you want it. But not in this thread. In that one. Two threads back.)
Update: The flight has just been pushed back another hour. I WANT MY 500MPH CHAIR!
