I recently mentioned to a friend that I have airport gods. These are the same sort of gods who help those who always nab the best parking spaces. In my case, the gods smile upon me whenever I go through airport security and my flights nearly always leave on time.
However, bragging about said gods has an immediate and negative effect (I hope they will forgive me for submitting this #TrueAltitude story).
The same day that I got braggadocios, I was booted out of the pre-check line because I screwed up when I booked my flight ages ago and my pre-check status wasn’t on my boarding pass. No big deal. As per usual, the line was short.
UNTIL…the TSA agent waved an entire high school class on a field trip in front of me. It was like something out of a horror movie. I couldn’t help but laugh. I deserved it.
I wasn’t laughing three hours into a flight delay. However, as people crowded around the gate for information, I snapped this shot of a couple waiting it out together.
And my faith in the airport experience was renewed.
