Flying YUCK

After a great trip to the SF Bay area to my niece's wedding and hanging with my family and close friend, I got to enjoy a day of delight traveling via air.
Man----after getting to SFO via Bart my flight was then delayed and overbooked- then 5 grueling hours airborne next to a 6 month old and a two year old -with another kid kicking my seat behind me and the gal in front of me had her seat reclined all the way back the entire trip! Finally after reaching Atlanta's busy airport they changed my gate three times!!! This involves taking the tram shuttle thingy back and forth plus walking to and fro to get to the gates.Grrrrrrr........The Atlanta to Sarasota stint went pretty well though. The upshot is this! Flying is getting even more horrible than it already was...I am just so lucky that my flights actually flew and I didn't get bumped from any of them. In SF I could have gotten a $400 dollar voucher if I would wait 10 hrs to fly but I turned it down. Particularly because you can't rely on any flights anymore, and those voucher flights are usually hard to redeem

Well I gave my dog some hugs and now its off to bed so I can go to work in the AM.
