Although I had an amazing holiday weekend in Missouri, easily the worst part of the trip was traveling. From a cab driver trying to get cute with the route to the airport and nearly causing me to miss my plane, to flight reservation mistakes and flight change fees, bag check fees, added new flight costs, overbooked flights, plane delays, connecting flight delays and more. So after waiting in an extraordinary long line at the cab stand, to sit down in a cab, tell the driver where I need to go and hear, “Welcome home sir, it’s glad to have you back in New York. I hope you enjoyed your trip,” made my day.Â
I think that was the first time someone ever made me feel glad to be back home in New York.
