"Well for them that don't know I set off for Alberta today to take a job with ClearStream Energy in Fort McMurray. Right now I'm supposed to be at 35000 ft and about an hour into my journey. The ugly reality is the Air Canada bastards wouldn't let me get on the flight as I was 3 minutes past their cutoff time of 45 mins before take off to check in. Soooo I have to wait another 6 hours here in Pearson airport until I can board the next flight out at 8.55 pm ET....oh, and it cost me an extra $84.85 for the privilege as I had to 'change flights'...and to add insult to serious injury the fooking beer is $9.71 a pint. Ask me if I'm, go on....ask me..."

That said, I'm on my way...only 4 and a half hours to go before I get on the jet ;-)
Jesus man if you can't be on time for your flight think twice bout what you going doing. There are good reasons for strict airport policies, 9/11 may ring a bell, we usually have to be 2 hrs early. Best of luck anyway and get good batteries for your alarm clockIdea

That's a fair comment Irishi and I have no real excuses to offer save for the fact that I've never flown on a domestic flight within Canada before. Lesson has been learned and I made it out to Fort Mac albeit a little later than planned. I have a few things to sort out here before actually going to work next week and there's a story attached to that too which I'll save for a separate post.
