Z has the flu so I’ve just gotten off the phone with Delta, in order to postpone our trip to Indiana by four days, because no one wants to deal with a stomach bug during seven hours worth of air travel.
Here’s what I think I need to do for my future career. Figure out a racket, like the airline industry, wherein you can charge someone the equivalent of an entirely new ticket and call it, instead of “new ticket” a “change of ticket fee.” We will be occupying the same two seats we would have been in anyway on a route and day that is no more nor no less popular than our original itinerary. It took the Delta Representative five minutes to make the change. That will be $380 please. (And the price for the more enviable Sunday ticket we originally wanted would have flown us to Hawaii.)
Think, brain. Think. How can you start earning $380 for five minutes worth of work. There has to be a way.
