trying not to scream!

I am frustrated

Let's say I am trying to use some of the gobs of frequent flier miles that my dear husband has accumulated over the past 3 years.

Let's say that I want to go to Sweden to visit a friend.

Let's say that I deserve to go, I miss my friend, I need a trip. Did I mention that while my husband was on his work trips I was the single super mom?

Let's say that I was on hold, waiting for a human to help me because a certain airlines (bad, bad UNITED!) website keeps pooping out on me.

Let's say that after 30 minutes a human finally says hello to me, yet when he finds that I want to book an international flight and that the web site is not working that he can "transfer me"

Let's say that this "human" transferred me to a busy signal......

That's it

kicked off.


I know that this problem is not life-threatening or on par with war or famine.
But I am still irritated.

First off, I would like to state that I love my Mother-in-Law mucho.

But I had to share this piece of art from another blog, http://postsecret.blogspot.com/, I laughed and laughed and then thought of my dear pseudo-Swedish friend Yasmiene and 5 pounds of bacon and then I laughed some more....my Mother-In-Law has a very keen sense of humor, so I think that she will laugh and laugh also.
