Hello From The Birmingham Airport

Well I'm just sitting here waiting for my plane to board so I thought I'd take this opportunity to add a little to my blog. I know its been almost a week since my last post, so I'm trying to repent a little and get back on track. Airport are such a crazy place. They try so hard to keep everyone so organized, but it always just falls apart. This is not my first visit here in Birmingham, but it is my first visit flying with American Airlines. Unbeknown to me was American uses a different terminal that the previous airlines I've flown with. Unlike SLC airport, the two terminals do not connect with each other outside the security check-in. So after standing in one line, going through the whole ordeal, they sending me back out, and point to the correct terminal, just to do it all over again. I am sure glad I came with plenty of extra time to spare, or I'd be in a world of hurt.

Have you ever just sat there and watched people at an airport? I think you can see just about every type of person imaginable. Since most of my flights are never direct, I spend LOTS of time in connection cities. I'm such a lazy person, that sometimes just sitting there watching people is all the entertainment I need. From old to young, I've seen them all, and just laugh at what people do when they think no one is watching them. Such a joy!

The trip was a total success (at least so far), I left their office in good spirts, and made the most of my visit. In January I had a similar visit, but it was disasterous, nothing worked!! This time it was the complete opposite, it seemed everything worked as it was supposed. I was also able to dedicate some time in solving some other issues they were having. It was especially touching that many of their managers came to wish me off, even though I hadn't even helped them this trip. Just one of the perks of the job, seeing people happy...

Well I couldn't have a post without mentioning the BYU vs Utah game. It has been tough being away all week and missing out on all the smack talk. Luckily I did have the internet and could review whatever newspaper/blog update I could get my hands on. Tomorrow we can finally see who the winner with be. I have a good feeling that the Cougs will end up on top, but thats why they play the game right?

Well looks like my flight is just about to board, so I better make an ending to my post. Hope all is well with everyone!
