Delayed Departure

So I was supposed to be up in the air by 8:45am German Standard Time, but something crazy happened in the terminal. Nothing dangerous but the funniest thing I have ever seen. I was sitting in the terminal for over 2 hours with only a few people around. Then these security people in red coats telling us to go to the end of th terminal and come back in 20 mins.

I couldnt understand what was going on, but I didnt really care and I just got up and went to the beginning of the terminal. Later on I figured out that the security screening for that Terminal wasnt there until 45 mins before the flight. They want to scan people who were already scanned previously. So there were about three flights that were supposed to leave, and I was lucky to be standing up front, because I refused to go back to the end and acted as if I couldnt understand her English, and she gave up. So when they opened the security line I had the Female German version of Danny DeVito screaming at me in German to do something then she said take your shoes off. I was about to laugh but I held it in. They opened up the bag and did the scan, everything went smoothly. Then another document check at the gate. It was hectic! Too many people in a short amount of time. So hour flight was delayed over two hours!!! Thats a long time!

Now Im posting from plane number 2! I shouldnt get used to this or I would expect this from every plane! I dont think there is any other form of Entertainment needed! I just want to eat and pass out! Its been too freaking long since I had food in my mouth! That breakfast did it for about 1 hours, but now Im starving! I NEED MEAT!

A guy who is just trying to enjoy life!

    I think there must have been another threat worldwide…. yesterday the checks in Bangkok for both the London and Dubai/Kuwait flights were continuing AFTER both flights were supposed to have taken off. This never happens in BKK airport, EVER.

    Just got back from San Francisco. Be sure to test your calves and hike up to Coit Tower for one of the best views in town. Lombard St. was cool with one terrace that had a giant pink flowering plant that you could see for blocks.

    The “Bush Man” was still there on the Wharf scaring passersby to the endless delight of other tourists. This guy has been there every time I’ve been there and must rake in about $200 a day. He is on the West side of the street to the left of the main crabshack.

    Have a great time.
