Flights, Trains #$#&#$*@#$&

Filed under: Rant, travelogue — yaadayaada @ 11:35 pm

You see, for a person who hates flights, I do travel a lot! While going to Zurich, a bird travelled with us in the cabin who was screaming like a monkey. Don’t know what kind of bird it is! Then the train from Milan to Zurich got delayed by an hour and half. Then my travel back from Zurich to home via Atlanta was another nightmare. ZRH to ATL had a mom, nanny and 2 little boys to add joy! The boys who were 2 and 4 were having a screaming match with their mom who was a real b!tch! She was a screamer as well. Constantly screaming at her kids. The nanny was no good as well! Everyone in the cabin had a headache at the end of the 11 hour flight which got delayed by another hour due to bad weather. At the end of the flight, I am sure most of the passengers got their tubes tied or got a vasectomy!

Now I am in Atlanta, at least it is quiet, but my flight has been getting delayed by 30 minutes every 30 minutes! God knows when I can go home and have to go to work tomorrow 😦

And don’t even get me started about the airport security sham!

P.S. I guess I need to borrow the the “Kala Tikka” from the mommy bloggers so that I can travel without these nightmares and post fun travel posts!

  2. Ennadhu idhu..ippadi oru soga kadhai. Ulagam Sutrum Boo dhaan ninaichen…looks like Ulagam Sutrum Vis family 🙂

    BTW Belated Happy Birthday. Looks like you called and I missed it.

    On that Zurich to Altanta flight…Oh!! I can imagine that Mom …must be like me 🙂 Just kidding.
    I mean….with toddler boys it can get really bad as I can tell with one toddler boy who is handsful, but still they can be controlled/calmed down.

    It is upto the parents to use the distraction technique, which luckily should
    work with that age group.

  3. err.. I could be that b.. on a really bad day! though the screaming is usually forcefully contained inside of the 4 walls..
    Now that you are back home safe, can we look forward to those travelogues?
