You Snooze, You Lose

I'm back from LA. Wedding was awesome...I had so much fun. Glad I didn't miss it...because I almost did.

Last week I reserved an airport shuttle. The driver got to my apartment at 3:45AM. I had a 6:08 flight out of Oakland Airport. I dozed off during the drive there and woke up to signs welcoming me to San Francisco International. The driver brought me to the wrong airport. I started foaming at the mouth and went apesh-t! I yelled at the driver, asked him why the fa we were at SFO instead of Oakland. The driver then proceeded to yell back at me and ask me if I remembered the price of the service given me by the reservation agent. I told him I didn't (I was too pissed and honestly I don't even know if I got it). He said that proved the miscommunication was my fault. I still don't get his reasoning. I specifically said I needed to go to Oakland when reserving the flight. He got me another shuttle. I got to Oakland at 5:45, missed my flight and had to wait 3 more hours for another one. Fog was heavy in LA and the flight I got on was delayed by almost an hour. I got into LA at almost 1PM!!!

I'm ok now. I didn't go to work today because I was so tired! I'm ready to read books now...ready to get back to blogging about romance novels and ready to start up another blog dedicated to more personal matters. I'll keep you all posted!

Oh no! So, was the shuttle prepaid or did you have to pay for it when he dropped you off? I hope that they didn't charge you because it was their error ~ Or if they did charge you, it should only be the original cost of the what the shuttle should have cost to the Oakland Airport. What a way to start the trip. I hope your weekend got better from there.

Enjoy your day of reading and blogging!

Yikes, that's just ugh!!! It figures they fuck up. I don't know WHY people don't pay attention when you are PAYING for their services. You'd think they'd want to make the customer happy.

Glad you had fun!!!!!
