Avery spent the entire flight (and the hour we spent waiting for take off) stuck between two drunk Texan businessmen who talked to him the entire time about he’s not good enough to “party with them” and how Obama needs to be “strung up by his nuts.”
Funniest thing I’ve ever had the privilege of listening to. I took notes.
It may have taken five hours longer than it was supposed to but we’re here!
Love the slightly defensive arrival announcement from the stewardess: “Once again we apologize for the delay… that was caused by WEATHER. But we’re happy to have gotten you here safely…”
So Beige is doing the Austin Sketch Fest and Avery, Lisa, Kerry and I are on the same flight that’s been delayed by three hours.
What makes this more interesting is that we are currently here on the very last day of this terminal. Tomorrow, Terminal 3 will cease to be the Delta terminal at JFK. This means that this place is basically a weird ghost town. Avery compared it to a small town after the local factory closes.
No one cares about anything. The men’s room has a broken urinal that appears to have been leaking onto the ground for hours. Instead of fixing it, someone just placed a “wet floor” sign on the massive (and growing puddle). The Burger King is out of “numbers 1, 2, 3, all sodas,” and only had three forks left. Avery and I looked for an ATM for 30 minutes, getting different directions from every employee. Some kept directing us to a small, empty room. Finally, we surmised that the ATMs had all been removed.
It’s all very weird.
Meanwhile, Dan (who’s on a different flight) is stuck in a different terminal on his own flight (also delayed three hours).UPDATE: We’re now delayed four hours. Woo!
SECOND UPDATE: The 10 Minute Manicure store is closing its gate forever so they let the four of us have as much of their left over merchandise as we wanted. I got Hydrating Lotion, a sunscreen stick, astringent, and “Hair So Rich.”
We are now street rats hoarding garbage. We are the Air Rats.
From the makers of 10 Minute Manicure… NEW FIFTEEN MINUTE MANICURE! YAAAY!!!
The businessman sitting next to us left without finishing his cheese plate. So we’re eating it.
Every minute that goes by in this delay we lose more of our humanity.
What’s the over/under on me getting shit for trying to bring fake pilot hats on an airplane? #atxsketchfest #beigedoestexas
