Luckily, they still had vacancy! Renee Post author August 2, 2019 at 1:33 PM ReplyThis makes me feel so much better! When I realized I was at the airport TWO DAYS early I felt like the biggest idiot on earth. Sheila July 30, 2019 at 8:28 PM ReplyHey, better to early than late! Renee Post author August 2, 2019 at 1:34 PM ReplyThis is very true. And can you imagine if I was two days late and then missed the birth? Melpub July 30, 2019 at 8:31 PM ReplyI missed my flight home from New York to Düsseldorf–I was sure it was the next day. Worried my dear husband to death and created the problem of how to get home that day without spending a zillion . . . .I did get home without spending a zillion, thanks to his efforts, and everything worked out. Renee Post author August 2, 2019 at 2:07 PM ReplyWow…glad to find out I’m not alone in getting mixed up. Nev July 31, 2019 at 12:49 AM ReplyWe missed an international flight that was our international move. I was like 24 weeks pregnant. We had all our belongings with us at the airport. My parents who had just dropped us off at the airport from home, 90 minutes away, had no cell phones in their car because they are Luddites >.< Stranded, knocked up, broke, and stupid lol! I will grant us, we got a flight for a decent deal the next day and made it work – a fairly good recovery Renee Post author August 2, 2019 at 2:09 PM ReplyOh, that sounds horrible! At least I was alone… Melissa July 31, 2019 at 12:35 PM ReplyOne time I hit and damaged my boss’s parked car in a parking lot. We were working the final shift and were the only two cars in the lot. I still managed to smash it.Another time I was happily sitting in my therapist’s waiting room only to find out I didn’t have an appointment.I currently have a $1,440 bill because I somehow drove into a storm drain, popped my tire, and smashed the front bumper… Renee Post author August 2, 2019 at 2:10 PM ReplyThat’s horrible! Especially when there were only two cars in the lot. And $1440? That sounds painful 🙁 Monica July 31, 2019 at 1:44 PM ReplyThat time I called my husband at work crying hysterically because I didn’t know where the baby was. He calmly reminded me I was still pregnant. Katherine August 2, 2019 at 5:17 AM ReplyThat made me laugh so hard!!!!! I am 25ish….something weeks with baby number 10. Thanks for the laugh!! Renee Post author August 2, 2019 at 2:11 PM ReplyThat is hilarious! I have been known to freak out about where the baby is when I was holding said baby… Peg August 1, 2019 at 8:37 PM ReplyA few years ago, coming home from shopping I saw my husband’s brother had stopped by for a visit. He and my husband were standing on the sidewalk chatting, as I pulled up waving at him, I then promptly crashed into his truck. Renee Post author August 2, 2019 at 2:12 PM ReplyOops. I bet you haven’t lived that down. Tarynkay August 2, 2019 at 5:03 AM ReplyI’d be sorely tempted to just check in to the airport hotel for a couple of days and never say anything to anyone…. Renee Post author August 2, 2019 at 2:13 PM ReplyI did very seriously consider that…but going to NZ twice in two months, I literally couldn’t afford to spend what two nights in a hotel would have cost 🙁 If it were just one night, I would have booked a hotel and relaxed…Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou have to agree to the comment policy.
