So on Thursday, I drove my hubby to the airport once again as he had to attend a business conference in Toronto which is only a couple of hours away by air. One flight so he carefully packed his dress clothes for the meeting and then a few casual clothes so he could spend some time with family on the weekend before coming home on Sunday.
Well, the poor bastard gets to Toronto on Thursday evening and can you guess what happened?? Yup! No f@$%ing luggage again!! He had to race around Thursday night before the shops closed and buy a suit and shirt and a few other essentials so he wouldn't look like something the cat dragged in at the meeting on Friday morning. His luggage arrived Friday afternoon AFTER the conference of course!
Once again, we are fighting with the airlines trying to get some of his expenses reimbursed. Their excuse? The luggage weighed too much so a few suitcases were left behind and sent on a flight the next day. Unfortunately, we are not allowed carry-on bags right now so you'd think they would realize the problem this is creating, after all, we are following their rules.
If this can happen to us twice in such a short time, is it any wonder the airlines are in financial trouble? It can't be helping their bottom line to be constantly buying new clothing for passengers! Stay tuned, I'll let you know if we get any of the money back before they go bankrupt! In the meantime, anyone out there care to calculate the odds of this happening twice?
