After 8 hours, I arrived in WI last night. Unfortunately, my suitcase decided to stay and party in Chicago.
You would think that after years and years of being in business, airlines would have figured out simple things like how to take a suitcase from point A to point B. I've heard the statistics about how 99.2% of all luggage gets to their destination without any issues. Uh huh. This has happened to me 3 or 4 times now.
I think their stats are screwed up. That or some luggage handlers have me on their "list".
I was finally reunited with my underwear, toothbrush and clothing late this morning. Went back to the airport to meet up with my coworker and found out that his flight was cancelled due to mechanical problems.
He's enroute now but won't be arriving for another 5 hours. So, he'll get in some time tonight around 10 pm. That means we're about 8 hours behind schedule. Because after he arrives, we have a 4 hour drive to Northern Michigan. And since we're crossing over timezones, we'll arrive at our hotel around 3 am. Just in time to unpack and get back up at 6 am for our morning meetings.
I'm going to try to take a nap now. *sigh*
