how do I respond to something like this?:
On my way back from DTW
after my DG
class non-revving, my flight was super delayed for an inbound aircraft (about 3 hours). I was sitting in the 2seat side of the Saab with my badges in full display for everyone to see. I had this gentleman next to me that was bitchin a fit, telling me all about how NW
screwed him again, how the person at the gate kept ignoring him, how he wasn't going to be home before dinner, how Toledo must have his bag or he will sue the airline, etc, etc, etc.
My first thought was if you had
to get to Toledo, drive.
They were giving us some pretty decent updates, updating everyone in the gate area where the aircraft was(ie what city, etc).
Well, I am sitting there listening to this guy go on and on. I knew the FA
and he and I kind of shrugged it off, I halfway hoping that he wouldn't ask me about this situation. But....he did. He asked me how bad it was for me, the wait, did I miss anything appointment-wise, etc. I told him that I love to be in airports (used 5 rolls of film that wait
) and the wait didn't bother me too much, well, cause Toledo has nothing to spot. Then I proceeded to tell him that if his bag did wind up missing that I would personally do a bag claim at the ticket counter for him in Toledo. I dont think that he spoke the rest of the way.
