I made the journey fron Kansas City to Irvine, CA today with a co worker. Well, part way anyway.
In Denver, we each had to catch separate planes on separate airlines, in separate terminals for the final 1000 miles or so.
So I get to my new airline, and the flight is delayed by about 45 minutes. It's no surprise, really. Every flight I've been on this week has been delayed by an hour or more.
Eventually I get to Irvine, figure out where my hotel is, get my rental car, jump on the freeway, get caught in an obscene 11:00 PM traffic jam, and finally pull into my hotel parking lot an hour later.
My coworker pulled in 5 seconds later.
