Doofus Me

I was supposed to meet one of my superstar salesmen, Rocky, at the Dallas Love Field airport this morning at 7:40am.

That was pretty impossible, seeing that I left the house at 6:30 a.m. for a supposed 7:40 a.m. flight.

I think I'm traveling waaaaayyyy too much. I should have left the house at 5:30 a.m. for a 6:40 a.m. flight.

Rocky was very gracious when I called him. I already know he's got a great sense of humor.

Rocky: Hey, morning, Janie! I'm heading to the airport to pick you up. Y'all 'bout to leave?

Janie: Ummm. No. Not even. Rockstar, I made a huge mistake.

Rocky: Yeah? What happened?

Janie: Well, as I was driving to the airport, a reminder came up on my Blackberry. It said 5:30/6:30 airport. As I'm driving, I get a funny feeling - like, why would I put that reminder on my calendar like that? And I pulled out my boarding pass and realize I should have already been on the plane. I won't get in now until 10:15 a.m.

Rocky: (laughing) Don't worry, girl, we'll move some appointments, I'll pick you up at 10:15 a.m.

Well, at least he now knows his boss lady is not above making mistakes! Gotta go, heading to...the airport. And I'm going to be EARLY.

Gotta love those Southwest flight schedules, though. They're so good about letting you catch the next flight if you miss the first one. No one else is that flexible and easy to deal with.

Southwest rocks!

Hope you get to go home and rest for a while soon.

Southwest totally rocks.

Southwest is all we Birds fly. In a world where only about half of everything works, you can always count on them.

That is too funny... would that be a big fat brain fart or what? Anyway, at least you're in good company. I've even been known to leave my car in front of the airport then call hubby to go get it once I'm on the plane (because he can't hurt me once I've boarded). But, that was back before 9/11.

Hubby hates flying anything that isn't SW but I don't care as long as I'm going SOMEWHERE other than here, LOL!

Betsy Bird - that's true, you can count on Southwest. You just can't count on all the ticket holders to make their original flight.

Snooty - I almost named this post brain fart. Didn't think that would portray well.

But, yeah, now that you call it...

I'm just saying... lol.

Been there, done that -- I passed on the T-shirt -- prefer button-downs, long-sleeves.

Poet - you are too dang funny...
