There was the time that I told the limo driver in London to take me to the airport. He obliged. I didn’t feel a need to specify which one and he didn’t feel a need to ask. We both later regretted this when we ended up at Gatwick and I was flying out of Heathrow.
There was the time I was in Europe and flying to France to meet my cousin. She asked what airline I was flying, to which I replied “Expedia.” In my defense, I didn’t book my flight - my British lover did. (Who actually was from Toledo, Ohio but I met him in Britain so I think technically I can use that posh title.)
Most recently, there was the lost boarding pass scandal in Argentina. The scandal was basically how it sounds. I lost my boarding pass. It all worked out though. Turns out it was in my purse the whole time!
But that’s all in the past. I am much older and wiser now. So I wasn’t at all concerned yesterday when I booked my trip to NYC. In fact, I was extremely excited!! This excitement was short-lived however as I started researching how I was going to get from the Newark Airport to my Manhattan hotel. I hopped on the internet and looked at my options. This is the route the New Jersey Transit website suggests I take.

It might as well say, “Hey Megan! Fuck you!” Maybe Expedia Airlines flies directly into Manhattan?
