Unexpected airport appreciation

I should be preparing for push back but instead I am sitting in the terminal...why? Delayed.

I'm feeling huge today. I brought my HP Mini 5101 Netbook and Microsoft 8GB Zune instead of my 15 inch Macbook pro and Zune HD.

For reasons I can't figure out, the inbound plane is running an hour late. I am supposed to leave at 1PM . The inbound won't be here until 1:55PM. Right now my flight is scheduled for 2PM. I'm a betting man and I am going to bet against leaving before 2:35PM.

Today is my day off. I picked up this 3 hours 40 minute turn on overtime. It was supposed to leave at 1PM and get back to the gate at 5:10PM. I could have been home by 5:45PM. Now I will be lucky to be home before 6:45PM.....thinking more like 7PM.

Today is the last day of the year. It's been good overall. I've once again cheated commuting by holding my base even though I am THE bottom guy. Next year....tomorrow...should be good. My seniority will rise given new guys coming in below me.  Starting tomorrow I have plain old reserve thanks to someone forgetting to bid.

I'm glad I was smart enough to bring my netbook along with me. I was thinking about leaving everything behind since this was *only* a turn.
