Finally, I'm back in Dallas. I had a great trip, until it came to coming home. I was scheudled to come back on Sunday evening but when I was already at the airport, they canceled the flight. I had to wait for an hour and half to get a new flight for the next day. My flight was the last one going out for the day.
So...I get up to the line, and the only fight they have available is the same exact one leaving Monday at the same time. SO...I go for it. I am excited to stay one more day, athough it was a bitch to find out. Anyhow, I relax and take a few movies in while waiting on my father to get off work.
Long story short...I was at the airport again, and the flight was just delayed. There were flights that were supose to leave around 3:30pm that were delayed till 6:45. So, in hopes I would get to DFW, I got on the delayed flight. Sat down, and they began to pull away from the dock. Two seconds later, they pulled up and the captin came over saying that DFW was shut down due to weather. *FUCK*
Instead of letting us off the airplane, we sit there for a FREAKING HOUR in hopes the weather will clear. So finally we get the ok. We were 7 planes in line to take off.
Finally up in the air, the trip itself took 30 minutes. "We do apoligize folks, but we just got word from DFW that the weather is bad so we're gonna circle around in hopes it clears up." *FUCK AGAIN!*
So...a alcoholic beverage later, and 30 minutes of circling around the airport, another message. "Ladies and gentleman we just got word that even though the weather is bad, we're gonna TRY and land. Please prepare for landing."
So we circle around about 5 times and then decide to go down. Lightening is going all around us and I can barely see the ground below us. Ahh..I love being a test rat!!
We FINALLY land the plane and another message "A bit of bad news I'm afraid. Since our flight was delayed we don't have a gate to unload you at. We'll have to wait till somebody leaves."
FUCK THIS SHIT!! 30 minutes later we pull up to the gate and I scramble to get off the plane. A trip that should have taken me a max of 59 minutes turned into something that was longer than 3 hrs.
So that was my trip home. I'm back at work now, and pretending to pass time for the next 30 minutes until I leave to go home. Yeah for me!
