On my way home from Calgary

So I got to the airport three hours before I thought my flight departed. You see where this is going, don’t you? At some point, my 5:30 flight was moved to 1:55. They usually send a notice, so I can only assume that it got caught in my spam filter. But, since I didn’t check my itinerary last night or this morning and missed that vital piece of information, I missed my flight.

The airline didn’t have any other flights tonight and said they could get me home by 5:30 pm tomorrow. Which would mean that I’d miss voting. No good. So I bought a ticket on United, which is fortunately not that much and will be on a red-eye home. I’ll go home long enough to drop off my bags and then onto the polling station.

    Ah, the joys of airline travel. I wonder if they actually ever sent you the notification. I’m glad to hear that you were able to find a flight elsewhere that’ll get you home in time to vote!
