Dumbass

So we came upon a long, long line at the airport in New Orleans and we finally get up to the electronic check-in monitors to get our boarding passes only to be rejected most cruelly by them. Initially it took my credit card as ID no problem. THEN it wanted my confirmation number which I normally don't worry about but did indeed have with me, so I fed it the information. Then it informed me that it couldn't check me in earlier than 24 hours before my flight or later than 10 minutes before my flight. This made no sense because we had minimum of an hour to spare before the scheduled departure. WTF? So I look at my printout of our flight info to confirm the numbers, flight times, etc and realize that I had booked us to leave on the THIRTEENTH. For clarification, if needed, this is YESTERDAY. This is the shit that my anxiety dreams are made of and it has come to pass.
Happily the agent at the counter was the best person ever in the universe, assured me that this type of thing happens all the time, and swiftly rebooked us for today, charged us no fee, and even made a point to book us seats next to each other. The universe needs to bake that man cookies, dude.

Well, it was good to see you regardless!

Man. I'm terrible about stuff like this, too. I generally have to have a post-it note on my forehead to make sure I get out on time.

I hope you never hear the end of that one. At least I'm absolved now.
