Definitely cool unless you work for an airline based in Europe!
Andy- Spot on! Or if you had a short trip to Paris planned to meet old friends from the States, as did my wife (note the past tense).
Well, I think it's amusing...there, on a tiny lil speck of land roars a hole in the earth that is competely fucking up the world travel system.That is awesome!We have had quite a few people here at work cancel trips due to the ash cloud, and even one of our Ph.D.'s is stuck in France (oh boo-hoo...stuck in France on the company dime...cry me a river!)Personally, I think it's pretty cool...and even cooler that it all starts on an island no one really cares about.
Hey, c'mon, it's STILL cool. It's just the annoying kind of cool, like when you're blown to bloody rags in a pyroclastic surge. There are things worth getting annoyed about, but there are things to just shrug and accept. This has to be one of them. Mind you, it helps if the airline refunds your money/honors your reservation for a later flight.And its a nice reminder that for all our hubris, we're still just another goddam hairless monkey that's managed to get promoted above its competence level.
