Oh - heres a great airline story (wish I could take credit but, it’s not mine.)
Friend of mine was working a gig overseas. The job wrapped, she started the flights to get home - and ended up being grounded in France (mechanical difficulties). Finally the flight was fully cancelled and folks were sent to a hotel. (It’s night time by now.) She grabbed a few other folks from the flight, hailed a cab - and headed to Paris. They had a fabulous late night dinner, toured the city, then got back to their hotel I think 3amish. Made it out on the rescheduled flight the next day.
I bow to her strength, resourcefulness and sense of joy.
