With an 8am flight to Charlotte I wake up minutes to 7- just enough time to dust myself off and into a suit, I am behind the wheel of my car racing through the sunday drivers of brooklyn. JFK airport is a second home, so I find a park in short term 2nd floor and race through the Jet blue terminal. Out of breath I beg for favor to the attendant and with a look at my crumbled preprinted boarded pass – im scurried express through security & on to my gate- ” You are going to JetBlue gate 24″ ok “thanks” I said – here is my boarding pass mam ” ok “Great and your seat is 23c Mr Smalls.
Comfortably Seated, Checked in on Social Media, Messaged the Woman I love. Time for an inflight movie…”Excuse me – you are not on this flight sir – its going to Charleston SC, not Charlotte NC — I Exclaim, “HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN”
No need to tell you about the failed attempt at Gate 16, approx a million miles away by foot. – time for AplanBForMe (lol @ my partners). Quick decisions, next flight – too late for meeting, new airline – $1,100 for 1 way–uhmm NO… Different airport & Different Airline, Bought the Ticket, took a Bus, made the Plane!
Exhausted, frazzled, tired, & disapointed However in all of this- I managed to successfully pique the interest of three airport employees looking to start their own business & acquired their contact info for a follow-up.
So from 10,000 feet in the air courtesy of Gogo internet US Airways I bring to you my morning full of hurdles (see www.LerrodSmalls.com for a FREE copy) & the victories they brought me.
Flight lands in an hour, lets see whats in store for me there…All praise do to the most high.
