Another travel morning, another airport, another set of randomly generated security rules implemented for my benefit. :roll: I did keep my mouth shut this time, though.

Another discovery that has the potential to be a future pain in the rump - my usual MO in Philly is to clear security at Gate A. All the gates are connected and a always has the shortest lines. B, C, and D are all done together and it's painful. This morning they were checking tickets to make sure you were hitting the right gate. They let me through since I was flying American (Gate A domestic is only American ) but that was not an encouraging sign.

It's almost like there is someone employed to figure out how frequent travelers are reducing the stress of flying and closing all those loopholes.

I took a minor loss on the seat lottery for my return trip last week - a woman from the body positivity movement was seated next to me - her overflow of seat was an annoyance but not too bad. Certainly not what a guy a couple rows ahead of me suffered - a guy who I regularly see flying out of my home airport - is basically round - and I mean he's as wide facing you as he is turned sideways. He had the aisle and had the arm rest up and overflowed into aisle so much people had to turn sideways to get by him.

I'd punch myself in the nuts to get out of sitting next to this guy on a flight - especially come summer.

May the travel Gods look upon you favorably B&W.

Thanks. After this week no airplanes until early May. I've got some time booked in NYC in April but I just take the train in.

On the plus side, when I mentioned expensing the TSA precheck to my boss, he said he was shocked it has taken this long for me to bring it up. So, I'll kick that off next week.

I got blood work done in November of 2016 but I just got $218 bill. I call the doctors place and they talk to m. I ask them what can I do and they tell me to call my insurance company. I want to burn all of it to the ground! BTW- I wouldn't do that but it is enough to make someone crazy! Who doesn't have 30 minutes of a day to sit on the phone and listen to some shitty upbeat music!

Welcome to my world. I've wandered through more phone trees than an arborist.

Just finished an argument with a dental ins. co. Their rules are atrocious. Now the appeal. :x

Of course, since I met my deductible and out of pocket maximum on Jan. 3rd I'm in the position to push them for about anything now.
