Luggage where are you?

Chicago airport has commandeered our luggage .............! We have been in Utah without luggage starting day two, they promise we would have it Sunday morning. The United counter lady is a liar, I know its a harsh word, but I really believed her when she cheerfully said it would be on the next flight and delivered Sunday morning.
It's great to be home and thank god for my favorite place in the world "Target" because of them I'm not in the same clothes I wore two days ago. I really want my luggage though, I'm sick thinking about all the authentic German gifts for family and friends. My favorite shoes .....basically all my favorite things I pack to come home. All Craig and Katelyn skis and ski clothing etc....yes all replaceable but at who's expense.....mine! Ugh!! Not the way I pictured the start to my Holiday in Utah...but we are home and it is a WONDERFUL life..........!

Didn't we have a little discussion about this possibility? Especially regarding ski stuff?
I'm sure they will get it to you, just keep bothering them. Last year coming home from Utah, Marc's stuff was in Massachusetts for a few days and then finally tracked to newark where it sat until Marc drove there went in, found it and just took it! No one stopped him or ever inquired if he had ever gotten his luggage.
So, be the squeaky wheel!
At least you're home!

At least you are all safe and together. It is just stuff.... don't sweat it. Write the airline a nice letter too, maybe you can get some extra miles or something, they should not be making customers mad these days. xo

I would be that person who the airlines hated! I would call and call and call... You know the customer is always right!! LOL!

Hi Frau, hope you got your luggage. I was wondering what book did you end up deciding to read?? xo

Frau said...

yes my luggage finally got here, funny you ask about a book I'm just surfing the net looking for several to bring back. I will be getting the water for Elephant one you suggested but want a couple. Recommed anymore?

I stopped in from Ina's blog. I'm glad your luggage found its way to you.
Oh dear your luggage story sure brought back holiday nightmare memories and all of my therapy sessions!! LOL... Those were the days I don't miss working at O'Hare. EEKS... the stories I could tell!! On the bright note there were a lot of good days working and the people I met along the way.

Enjoy the rest of your vacation.

I'm glad to hear you're finally reunited with your luggage! Have you read The Time Traveler's Wife? What about Julie and Julia?

Hope you're having a wonderful holiday! xo
