My journey from Eastern Europe to California was great…until I got to California.
Los Angeles border security (not the agents but the “greeters”) are idiots.
2 hours for citizens?
Southwest lost my bags on a one-hour hopper flight (that left early!). Then the independent and empowered woman at the customer service counter decided to ignore me and address my girl when I triggered her (all I wanted to know was if they’d reimburse $50 if I went and bought a couple necessities).
Answer = no.
Not the money, it’s principle.
Anyways, before this turns into a woe-is-me message, I speaketh of this simply because the one thing I’ve always preferred about the US is the fact that the customer service is superior to Eastern Europe.
is that changing?
I don’t know. Mr. Grinchly Trouble is a bit perturbed by the situation. Seems America is hell bent on returning to Communism, and i can tell you from first-hand experiences – those commy-cuntries are sure as hell not built on customer service.
The truth is this:
You might, at one point or another, want that option to “escape”. When I landed in LA last night it felt far more third-world than most of the countries I’ve been this year.
So naturally, the steps to escape…
You need the moola.
You need the drive.
I can help with both.
Keep causing Trouble,
