A Bad Start to My Trip

So I am on my first trip for GuardianEdge Technologies. They sent me to Jersey City, New Jersey.

To start the trip off, the woman sitting across the aisle found everything possible to bitch about. First her audio jack wasn’t working, so the flight attendant asked me to switch with her because I wasn’t going to watch the movie. At least I got offered a free cocktail or snack, but I didn’t really want it anyway.

As a side note, one thing I have noticed about being on a plane is that I get some of my best reading and thinking done on a plane.

When I went to go pick up my rental car, I found that it hadn’t been payed for yet…so that meant $400 out of pocket probably until the end of the month. I barely have it right now too after my trip to Reno.

And then I ordered room service because I was funungry. I got chicken teriyaki…honestly mostly for the rice. And I get a call saying they are out of rice. Who runs out of rice?

The food comes…no knife, the sauce is salty, and the soda is warm. Not impressed with this particular $180/night hotel so far. However, the room is nice and at least this one has already been paid for.

Here’s to hoping my trip will get better and I won’t have to work overtime Thursday and Friday.

Post Revisions:

There are no revisions for this post.

  • If it makes you feel any better, last time I flew into Jersey (Liberty International Airport?), my flight home got cancelled and I had to wait like four hours to take a train back to Baltimore. This, while on 6 or 7 hours of jetlag.

    Also, “out of rice”? That’s the weirdest thing to be “out of” that I’ve ever seen. “funungry” is a great word, though, and I’m going to start using it.

  • What makes me feel better is that I am back in SF 🙂

    As I was telling William, I think I love this city even more after coming back from NJ.

  • Rice is a cooking staple,like pasta and flour, who runs out of something that is always supposed to be in the kitchen. I also have to agree that “Funungry” is an awesome word. You make my belly laugh, haha!
