Guess who lost her drivers license on an airplane in Missouri yesterday?
That’s right. You heard me. I left my i.d. on an airplane in St. Louis (I blame the Rams).
What kind of idiot loses her drivers license when she knows she has to fly home?
Me and her.
While I openly admit that I am a moron, and I should have put my id away but I am still going to complain. Today I will complain in letter form.
Dear Mary at American Airlines in St. Louis,
Yes. It is my fault that I am too stupid to keep track of my picture identification, however you don’t have to be a dick about it.
I mean – thanks for looking in the seat I ended up in. But you couldn’t check the other seat? It isn’t as if I were playing Chinese fire drill. Your company is the one who cancelled my first flight, that is the whole reason I was in St. Louis in the first place. I was supposed to have a direct non-stop flight to Chicago.
So don’t be a jerk to me. You know the TSA rules. Why do you think it is a totally reasonable to send my only form of photo id to my house by regular mail when YOU KNOW FOR A FACT I AM FLYING TO CHICAGO? You don’t have to roll your eyes at me, you don’t have to ask in your especially sarcastic voice who is going to pay to overnight you license to your hotel?
Because you know what? I am on my way to a blogging conference. I know your job is tough. I know that people come to you with their problems all day long, but your company (American Airlines) is the one who is cancelling all the flights and losing everyone’s luggage.
And I can see your name tag, Mary. Mary at the American Airlines gate in St. Louis. And I am going to tell the whole interweb that you were a jerk to me yesterday.
Suck it, Your Nemesis, Sincerely,
