    so last Tuesday I tried to fly home. My flight had a connection in Charlotte. The first leg of my flight was delayed so I was going to miss my connection, the last one of the day. I rescheduled the flight for today and had to take the same flights.

    I was going to call us air this week and get medieval on their ass to try to get an earlier flight or a direct.

    I blew it off :facepalm:

    So just as I got to the gate tonight I got a text that my 7:59 flight was now 8:29. A couple minutes later they announced that the plane will arrive at 8:29. They will have to unload passengers and luggage, then service the plane before my flight can depart. My 50 minute layover is toast. Unless my connection is delayed (not so far) I'm going to spend the night in Charlotte. My whole trip home was to be 44 hours if I made my flights.

    I need a hug. Or at least bust my balls for not trying to get an earlier flight.
