Thursday, I'm sitting in Reagan waiting for my already delayed flight back to Orlando when I get a text from Orbitz. Flight is now cancelled.....great. So I jump in line at the service desk behind a young lady that was on the same flight. She's pissed, and she wants everybody to know it....great. I try to remind Drama Queen that nobody in eye sight is responsible for her predicament. Her reply? "I don't give a shit, somebody is going to get cussed at!" I'm guessing that meant somebody in addition to me.
We both get re-routed through Charlotte, and have about 20 minutes before that plane starts boarding. My son and I get seated all the way in the back, but it's cool, at least we're going home. You know? Well here comes the Drama Queen and she's still pissed. "New Years Eve", "They should know", "I can't believe this"...yada, yada.
Then we get delayed on the tarmac for 20 minutes....great. I can hardly tune out the din coming from right across the aisle
Anyway, we get to Charlotte and it's double time it over to the next concourse to make the connection to O-town. The plane is pretty full but there's one open seat right next to me....great.
But then a wonderful thing happens, the door shuts. Hmmmm, no DQ. She never got on the plane...missed the flight....damn, that must suck.
Almost instant karma, it's a beautiful thing.
Got any instant karma stories?
