Ah, the joy of modern travel

August 6, 2008

I’m sitting here twiddling my thumbs in a United departure lounge wondering how I got roped into this business trip. Before I had a kid I used to love to travel, but now I basically regard travel as a huge hassle that’s almost never worth the delayed flights (weather in Boston), shoddy customer service (you get the impression the airlines would be happier if we all stopped flying), security that is a theater of the absurd (watch out, he’s got 5 oz of toothpaste!), and guilt from leaving my wife to handle our daughter all by herself. And did I mention the meetings starting at 6 AM because the East Coast can’t get a real time zone?

The joy of modern travel indeed.
