Today we wrapped up our team meetup in Austin and we all headed our separate ways.
One of the benefits of working at Automattic is that we can choose flights with times/layovers that are most convenient for us.
Today’s my wife’s birthday and I planned on getting home by 5pm so we could celebrate by going out to dinner.
Everything was going well until I got to the Dallas airport (DFW). Our flight was originally delayed by 30 minutes. And then 30 more minutes. It finally ended up boarding more than 2 hours late and we left nearly 3 hours late.
Now I’m going to have to book it home to have a chance to see my daughter before she goes to sleep.
I can understand that weather related delays will happen, but my flight was delayed because our plane was parked somewhere else and we had to wait for two hours for someone to drive the plane to the gate.
Oh, the joys of flying.
