I've been out of town and away from my bike for a whole week which would be bad enough.
However, I was forced to take an extra 120 mile leg when I flew out on business (I would have preferred to drive this to avoid a connection) because even though I would have been on the exact same plane, I would have been charged several hundred dollars more if cut my journey short. Naturally, my plane back is several hours late and due to be canceled so I won't make it back tonight.
Tomorrow, I have to meet all day with people who are flying in to see me, but I won't be there until a few hours late at best. At least I am confirmed for that. The airlines whine about fuel costs and insist on me riding a trip I don't even want. Then I get stranded. Being a long time traveler, this is hardly the first time this has happened to me.
On the way out, they way overbooked and they couldn't find enough takers for $400 vouchers plus hotel. Interestingly enough, there is no compensation if they just strand you halfway through your trip even though you still need a place to sleep.
I hate flying even though I do it all the time. Planes, trains, and automobiles was meant to be a comedy, but it's a bit too close to reality.
