So, due to client demands and pricing, I needed to log into Orbitz and get cheap airfare and waste my Sunday traveling, instead of flying off to Dallas on a Monday morning.  I really do not like airports on Sundays.  Damn tourists.  They do not know where to go or how to deal with the security...

I end up on ATA (no, not formerly ValuJet - Gaterbait - airlines).  So I get to the airport, and they tell me they are oversold.  And I think damn, typical.  Now not only am I here, but I do not get to fly when I want...  The very nice girl and attractive behind the counter booked me on American.  Direct.  Cool.  I get to Dallas 2 hours earlier.  BUT, since it is a transfer to another airline, it becomes the equivelent of a same day one-way purchase, which flags you for extra anal probing from TSA.  And speaking of TSA, those boys and girls behind the airline counters make the average baggage handler look gentle.  I watched at least two of them just push the luggage off the tables onto the convayer.  Not set it down, but just push it off the table.  Wow.  Hope you people do not ship anything the least bit fragile.  Just another reason not to check luggage.

The flight was uneventful, and my car was upgraded...  The woman at the rental counter said, so is the Ford Taurus good.  I looked at her and said, "No.  Taurus' suck."  She looked at me for a minute, and then said, would you like a convertable Seabreeze?  And I thought, what, a drink for the road?  Well it is Texas...  So here I am driving a Chrysler Seabring convertable.  Good times. 

Well, work time...
