We have been in code yellow for the last few days at JetBlue. Turns out the week before Christmas wasn't the best week for 15" of snow in NYC and 20" in D.C. Although my I'm sore from sitting in my recliner for so many hours I am happy to say that Jetblue and I fell in love this week.
First there was Teoman, a Marine, his flight from Charlotte to JFK was cancelled and his wife was in the hospital going into labor! He called me from the car to cancel his return flight because although he had already been awake 48 hours he wasn't going to miss the birth of his baby boy waiting for the next flight. He drove all the way there in the middle of the night to see his birth and will be with them for the next two weeks before leaving for a 15 month assignment in Afghanistan. Me+this story=love.
Then there was Grisel, I helped her with seat assignments and she in turn invited Brian and I to come stay with her on our trip to Puerto Rico this next week. She gave me her phone number, and beach recommendations. What a dear.
Michael and I found the only flight open from White Plains to Orlando together, the last seat, we grabbed it right up and both cheered. His job is on the line! He was so relieved that he would be able to be at his work meeting tomorrow, aren't you relieved as well?!? I am very relieved. Very relieved indeed.
Those are just a few of my favorites from the last 48 hours of flight changes. My first few weeks of price quoting to 18 year olds flying between the Dominican and NYC to visit their babies mamas made me a cold hearted reservations assistant. But I think I'm coming around. And after our upcoming trip to NYC for Christmas, Puerto Rico for an overnighter, and then back to NYC for New Years I am sure I will be committed to the jet setter lifestyle.
In other news, Brian Todd turned 29 this week, Stephen made us a headboard out of a door from our basement, I got my GRE scores back, and we have a secret Santa! Brian sums up how we feel about all of these things right here:
Merry Christmas to you and yours. Love, The Williams
