Welcome to Brad's online memory archives.

Stupid BWI

I’ve arrived in Nebraska! I didn’t die!

I got to the airport in Baltimore way before my flight. I had two hours to kill. I like airports, so I was looking forward to it. I had books to read, but was kind of hungry. There was a Wendy’s on Concourse C. Ehhxcellent! I would get a nice, greasy hamburger. Unfortunately, the line was really long. I had a lot of time to kill, so I waited. Also unfortunate was the fact that the woman behind me was an airport employee who was boasting about how she was on the clock still but that she was angry and so she was going to have lunch, then sit around, then clock out. I didn’t like her work ethic. I think it might have showed on my face, so I didn’t turn around.

By the time I got to the front, I was really hungry. I ordered a hamburger. The girl behind the counter said they were out of hamburgers. All they had was chicken sandwiches. What? No hamburgers at Wendy’s?!? And apparently, that had been true the whole dang time I was in line. Could they not have made an announcement? Or at least made a little sign on a placemat? Criminy!

After getting some food at another restaurant, it was time to board the plane. I sat on the runway for two and a half hours because it was raining north and west of the airport. Sheesh! Fortunately, by the time I got to Minneapolis, my connecting flight hadn’t left. I made it, and so did my luggage! But no thanks to BWI Airport. Stupid BWI with their stupid no hamburgers and stupid delays because of rain.

Here is the hateful Wendy's that doesn't serve hamburgers. Stupid Wendy's.

    So now I feel doubly bad for suggesting Wendy’s to you after you arrived, then not actually knowing where a Wendy’s was. I’m so, so sorry.

    Glad you’re not dead!!

  2. Peggy

    Yay for arriving safely!! And have fun on your month long vacation … and don’t waste even a second feeling bad for any of us non-vacationers … really … we’ll be fine.

    (stupid Wendy’s … but really, give up the square hamburger)

    Can a hamburger restaurant really run out of hamburgers? I mean that’s as ridiculous as KFC running out of chicken. Criminy.

      I went to Arby’s once and they were out of roast beef.

    It’s times like these when I am almost a teensy bit glad I never eat until I’ve landed, if you know what I’m not saying here (urp). That episode would have made me seething, scathingly, intolerably angry…and BWI wouldn’t like me when I’m angry. Just ask the Dominick’s food liners in Chicago…another story for my own blog, should I ever make one…

    By the way, the weather in Bawlmer today is magnificent: mid 70’s, cool breezes, nice all week, Norm Lewis tells us – and he’s always right (ahem). Anywho, hope Seward is just as fine now that both you and your luggage are there to enjoy it. Carry on! (…or, maybe you checked yours? he he)
