Traveling is a pain, and it causes pain too! I have never experienced any travel pain, but I have experienced the pain of traveling. Okay, I’m done with one-liners.
I’m sure anyone reading this has experienced a flight delay. Those are not fun. I Recently had a connecting flight in El Paso, Texas from Phoenix, Arizona. When I arrived to el Paso I saw that my flight was delayed 3 hours–I was livid! There were about 50 people arriving in the lively city of El Paso and they all came to the same horrible realization. I could tell that things were about to get ugly. Luckily since so many people were being delayed, they extended happy hour at the bar for the next 3 hours, half-priced drinks! We were quite a social group we all got to know each others lives over a few drinks. Turns out the band that plays with the singer Kimbra was delayed with the same flight and they had their instruments and played a little singalong that was amazing.
All of a sudden, about 2 hours into the delay, we began hearing our names over the intercom. Each person who was delayed received a free plane ticket to any destination in the continental United States! After we were feeling airport tipsy we all headed to our gate where all the seats were already taken, so we sat on the floor and started a massage circle! It was the greatest way to treat the pain of traveling. [via]253
