I want a thread to just argue about a rock and whatever else is on your mind.

Traveling does not interest me. I will drive there only.

The wife is on her way to Ireland with her brother. They are sitting in Heathrow because their flight to Ireland was canceled at the last minute. The last time they went to Ireland they had plane problems.

My brother inlaw and his wife travel often. Their last recent trip to Europe had a few plane problems. This happens way to much for me even want to travel.

There hasn't been any compensation.

Same here no flying. Used to do cruises, we did over 20 and belonged to a frequent cruiser club. They send free cruises, we reached saturation. The experience changed like flying. They want to make it cheaper for the masses and ruin the experience. The casinos at least some still offer exclusivity especially during the week. I worked hard made sacrifices I don’t want to be herded like cattle.

Their flight to Ireland was cancelled so they are incurring the cost of a room at Heathrow. Fly out tomorrow am. 

Just curious but what airline are they flying on?  If the flight is canceled the airline should pick up the tab.

We went on a cruise in 2018 on Norwegian, absolutely horrible experience.  We couldn't get close to the pool, hell I couldn't even get close to a bar and we had bought the drink package.  I went to bed sober everynight...so sad....

British Airways

I will check with the wife the next time I talk to her, IF I remember.

British Airways is a great airline.  Just because I work for Delta doesn't mean I don't respect others out there.  Hopefully they take great care of your wife.

We usually went the week after thanksgiving. No kids. After the first couple we stayed onboard while everyone was gone exploring. We had the ship to ourselves. At sea we were in the casino. We never had a bad one. Just burnt out. Alaska was the best. They keep throwing free cruises at us. Maybe someday.

That's what I felt like on the cruise ship.  It honestly sucked.  I don't think I'll ever get on another one before I croak.  Here's another tidbit from an airline employee.  I hate flying.  I love flying but that whole TSA thing drives me nuts.  It's so stupid while being in line listening to those blue shirts yelling out orders to take your shoes off and put your tablets and phones in a separate bin....TSA has killed the whole flying experience for me that I used to love.

So here's something I truly hate.  Different gun laws between the states.  In my home state of GA I can carry concealed now without a license of which is a recent change, I do have a concealed weapons license but I'm totally legal here in GA and most of the states around me because they have reciprocity between the states.  Now, let's say I go to say PA or NY and many other states, I could become a felon.  I thought we were the United States of America.  But we are not when it comes to gun laws at all.  Totally drives me nuts.  Our last adventure to Maine I had hand guns and my beloved AK in the camper.  I'm not paranoid at all, I just love my guns and the security it gives me.  My only wish is I never have to use them for protection and hopefully never have to take another life.  But if it comes down to me or them, I'm a pretty damn good shooter.  But it drives me nuts that I could become a felon in another state without ever doing anything bad.  I'm the good guy.  I'm the one you want carrying concealed behind you in the store or wherever if bad ****** starts going down.  Blows my mind up these other state laws.

I try to keep myself out of situations where I would feel the need to carry. I guess I’m still a little naive. I don’t travel at night anymore. I stay away from problem areas. The areas I travel don’t frown on personal protection. So worrying about problems are diminished. Funny how that works. More gun restrictions, more crime. Every time I get ready to travel I ponder should I? The answer so far is no. I’m not anti carry. I just want to believe I don’t have too.

I started carrying due to the rise in shootings. I probably have less chances of being involved in a shooting due to where I live. 

I still carry so I can defend myself if need be. 

 

Personal choice.
