Stranded in San Antonio

I'm not really stranded, but I am here on a Friday night when I thought I'd be home by now. But it's definitely a good thing. You see, as I was in the San Antonio airport today waiting for the second leg in my three flight odyssey back to Utah, Southwest announced they needed someone to give up their seat to Denver because they over booked it. They offered me $200 in travel vouchers plus the value of my ticket overall in travel vouchers. The total came to $593 in free travel. Using my superior negotiating skills, I got them to throw in a hotel room for free, too! I passed it by Robyn first because I've been away all week. She was all for it considering what she stood to gain from it. So there. There's your stupid blog update.

Sorry your stranded Matt, but I was hoping for something a bit better in your blog update, maybe next time!!! :)

It is I who benefits most from you giving up your seat, as we will probably buy every voucher you have.

Thank you for that "stupid" update. We will all eagerly await something more controversial and sassy when you have the time to entertain us with your usual blog fodder. Hope you made it home safe 'n stuff.
