Fate Conspires...

Sorry about the lack of delays this week. I'm being slightly more selective now that I know that I have people in the same building that are reading this...

My wife has been in discussions to bring my granddaughter down from Utah for the last three months like we have for the last two summers. Yesterday, she finally had the dates locked down, but we had to order the tickets before midnight to lock in the cheapest rates. So, I spent last night ordering airline tickets for her and my granddaughter.

This morning, everything went to shit. My wife called me in hysterics at work. She looks forward to Kait's visits more than just about anything, and they were just pulled out from under her.

I called Expedia within 24 hours to try to cancel the tickets (to take advantage of their one-time-only courtesy cancel), but found out that since they were paper tickets and the tickets had already been sent, they would have to charge me over $500 to cancel the round-trip tickets.

In short, we would get back absolutely nothing. Needless to say, I'm not thrilled right now.

On the upside, the next post will be number 900. Whee.

Dude - Paper tickets??? Is it still 1968 down there in Utah?

It was because she'd have to change airlines at a connection.

Never a dull moment...
