Hot time in the city, whenever I get there

Have I mentioned how much I hate Charlotte?! I don’t know what it is about this place but Christ… Got here at 3:45pm and have been rotating seats at the same bar for the past 6 hours. In all honesty I’m writing this while finally on the plane but without the help and good nature of some of my fellow time travelers I’d be on a homicidal rampage through the streets of this city right now. I encountered many different types of travelers while passing the time at whatever crab joint I was at for the past several hours… One dude that endured throughout the afternoon was just happy to be drunk and I can appreciate that. Another bar fly had open wounds on his hands and would interrupt his own stories with violent hackings from the bowels of his sick sick chest.

Luckily the afternoon was peppered with the occasional decent human being, one such fellow was a man similarly named Rob who was a distributor for Puma. As luck would have it, I had my pumas on and Rob was kind enough to buy a round or two, and I appreciate that.

Linda, our bartender for this massive ordeal was kind and outgoing and Jesus do I feel sorry for her.  I closed out with her 5 times, once for every time US airways called or emailed me that they were changing my flight. In their defense, they did call for a couple of those but each time they did the call dropped because of the hundreds of people in my immediate vicinity who were also being told their day was fucked.

I have no pictures or fun things to report, the afternoon was a bunch of people trying to make the best of a bad situation. I laughed my ass off with Rob and Linda and some girls (women) who had been drinking at the bar since 9am but we were all refugees. None of us where we wanted to be and all of us with very little prospect for the near future. My original thought remains, Charlotte blows. Good riddance to bad rubbish.
