Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Wednesday, June 01, 2011

Sorry...need to b**ch a bit...hell, if I am going to do it, I am going to spell it


So, I had a chance to get home Friday instead of Saturday...time to call Delta.

ring...ring...recorded message "all our people are busy at the moment. Enter your phone number and we will call you back in about 90 minutes."

NINETY MINUTES! OH, it was 3am in California when I called.


and yes, 3:00am...I could not sleep the whole dang week (another bitch btw)

So, then they call back exactly 90 minutes later.

"Want to change my flight one day"

"OK, well, it is $150.00 change fee"

$150!!! for you to push a button?

Well, actually $200.00 since you booked through your corporate travel and not through Delta direct.

$200.00 for you to push a button?!??!??!??

OH, and there is a fee increase of $100.00

$300.00 to change my flights to the EXACT SAME FLIGHTS one day earlier. And these are commuter jets here!

The airlines are freakin nuts! And that is not just Delta, ALL OF THEM!

Why can people not let co-workers know when they are taking vacation? All of a sudden they are not there. OH, and no voice mail informing you of that, so when you leave a message and then wait 3 hours for an answer to finally be told they are on vacation!


Why do you have to listen to co-workers deal with their personal crap all day?


Sorry, these things are making me crazy and I needed to bitch

Anything making you want to bitch?

5 Of Your Sparks

  1. There are many things about which I could bitch, but I won't. For now. ;) I will just say, it's too bad Southwest doesn't fly into Memphis, because they don't charge a fee to change your flight. :-D

  2. DrillerAA09 Says:
  3. Yep, the airlines actually have the nerve to want to charge you for those day old sandwiches that came from the cooler of a local convenience store. Are you kidding me?
    Our office requires that you request and get approval for vacation time from your supervisor. Then you place it on the "electronic" calendar so that everyone can see it. Now if others will just check the calendar before making that phone call to the vacationing desk, we'll have made some progress.
    Whew, I feel better now.

  4. Jay Says:
  5. Umm .. Nope. Everything's cool here. Nothing to bitch about. ;-)

    The airlines suck.

  6. Travis Cody Says:
  7. I got a pretty good deal for our flight to see the folks next month, so I'm not complaining about the airlines just now.

  8. Mimi Lenox Says:
  9. I do believe that was b***h worthy. Wow.
