NY Trip sucking thus far
« on: December 16, 2007, 11:27:29 AM »

Plane was an hour late yesterday, we get to the front of the line for take-off..... and have to return to the gate because of a maintenance issue, de-plane, and re-board.  Finally take off 2 1/2 hours late.  Get to baggage claim..... no bags.  45 minutes later me and about 8 other people on the same flight are all headed to the baggage service desk.... which has a line out the door already.   Grrrr.

Hotel Internet access is horrid - lucky to get my VPN connection to work to run occasionally.  Its raining.  And 18 hours later they still have no idea where my bag is Cussing.  My bag with everything in it - all my clothes, camera, phone charger (which will be real important by the end of the day  Sad), etc.  Looking for stores right now rather than watching much football.

The only good thing thats happened is that I walked directly across the street from the hotel, into an Irish pub, and got to watch Arsenal beat Chelsea, drink a few beers, and have some Guinness stew.

Off to buy some clothes and a phone charger I guess  Cussing  Angry

That sucks.

Curious - was it a direct flight or did you have connections? I don't get the missing bag thing on non-stops provided you've checked in on time.  I've been really lucky through the years but I know what a pain in the ass it is you're going through.

The tip from my FIL, who traveled extensively for his job: always take a carry-on with your toiletries, a change of clothes (or at a minimum, fresh underwear), and anything that you cannot do without for 48 hours after landing.

So I take it, that you are not going to start bounding down the streets of New York, singing New York, New York, Frank Sinatra style. Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

I don't play golf anymore.   Well, maybe I do sort of.  I quit keeping score, started drinkning beer and I started playing better.

Wait a minute, I think I got the Frank Sinatra thing wrong, I am sure that Rickhicks is a more of a high kicking Liza Minelli, New York, New York kind of guy. Grin Grin Grin Grin

I'm a seasoned traveler as well and have most things covered - its all the tailored pants, shirts, camera, and phone charger thats pizzin me off.  Freaking place a block away wants $90 for a freaking charger - fuggem I say.   For now   Embarrassed

If any of you have heard me sing, you know I'm not trying it in NY - the locals would stuff me in the subway to drown out the sounds.

I am going to see Phantom of the Opera even if I have to buy new clothes to do it - so suck it ya theater sniping bums!  Grin
