Now I'm waiting in line at the only customer service desk for that whole wing of Southwest Flights only to be told just to wait and they'll let everyone know about connecting flights. As it turned out, they were able to get our flight to wait for us in Chicago so that we could make it to San Diego.
So we board the plane, and b/c Southwest sucks, there's no assigned seating and David and I get separate seats. I am so lucky to get seated next to a woman and her 3 month old. And since when we finally get to Chicago we have to run to make our next flight, we get the only 2 seats available. And who gets to sit next to the ADD lap child? Me! Fun stuff. Then we find out that our flight actually doesn't go from Chicago to San Diego but that it makes a stop in Phoenix first. Yay! So after 3 hours of having a kid trying and swipe my snack, go spastic and spill my drink on me, we finally get to Phoenix and I am able to move up front to sit with David. (oh yeah, did I mention he got a front row seat and I was 2nd from the back).
Moral of the story, don't fly Southwest people. Even if the tickets are free b/c you used someone's sky miles. Seriously! Who doesn't do seat assignments!
Now David has been up since crack o' dawn like a kid at Christmas so we're off to Geek-fest 2009.
