stuck in toronto
See the time? my plane to san fran left at 8:25 am. Does that look like 8:25 am? well i didn't make the connection, and another lady didn''t either. we are stuck in toronto airport forEIGHT hours.
I amtyping on some bell internetconnection thingin the airport.itis not easy and takes foever and charges by the minute.
so farrit has been a hell trip. they told me there was food on the inside ofsecurityin Montreal,and so i ddnt buy someyummy sandwich prewraped wth brie cheese outside of security. hah.
inside security theyonly had a sit down restaurant with menues etc and my flightwas boarding in 5 minutes.I justgot acroissant on the bar counter and aate it in the plane. it was dry andhorrid and the onlything i ate since getting up on wed except for a bowlof oatmeal and a hamburger no fries atabout 9 pm. AND when i boughtit i forgot the new novel and map i bought on the counter. when you are boarding a plane it is tuff shit that you forgot something in the boarding lounge.. so with tip and the book,, it was a 38$ croissant.
here i raised a big stink sothey finally gave us each one 10$food voucherfor sitting here for 8 hours. dang. and i really had to bitchto get even that. canyou believe that even though rapidair flight goevery 30 minutes from montreal to toronto, theyput meon one that arrived 13 minutes before boardingtime to sf?
In that time youneedto deplane, walk agazillion miles, wait for a take a bus to another terminal,pick up baggage, fill out a customs form, go through customs, recheck your bag andgo to your boarding area. hmmm. anyonen see how puttingeven able bodiedpeople on a schedule like that is insane?
whatif youhave kids or have to shitor walkslow or have trouble atcustoms? so stupidwhen the next flight to san fran out oftoronto is 4:30 pm.they could havejust booked me on a 5am fligt out of montreal instead of a 6am flight. aand thenhave the next possiblitybe leaving montreal atnoon and getting here at 1pm for the same 4:30 pm flight i am goingto get on... yeah, leaving atnoon, ie could have had agood nights sleep,easy tofind someone to driveyou, lots of time to changein toronto and notwaiting 8 hours in the effin airport.
and id stillarrive in sf at 7 pm like i will now. imiss8 hours in san fran.grrrr.icalled ahead and they will buy the missing ingredients for thai curryfor supper andi will stillcook wheni getthere.
iam sorry the space keyworks like shit.ie it workss about 2/3 of thetime.sorry.
it hasbeen 18 minutes now so i bettergo. 20 centsa minute.maybe ill write later.
zzzzz high on annoyanceand adrenaline.
