I quickly scanned the area. Had I said that outloud?
Un-freaking believable! Again!
I checked the USB port.
I checked the microport.
I checked the plug in.
And waited, not very patiently.
I had time, plenty of time.
Better now than later.
Major eye roll.
Checked the connections again.
Muttering under my breath.
Trying not to disturb my neighbors.
Checked and rechecked all connections.
Ten more minutes!
All connections were solid.
And YET . . .
I looked in between the two rows of seats at Gate 12, Terminal C, La Guardia . . .
The plug ins lay on the floor
No power source
I knew exactly how Charlie Brown felt!
When have you been fooled?
How do you regain “trust” after being fooled?
Is this something you consider before April Fools’ Day?
