Lost tickets. Lost boarding pass. Left behind laptop when I went through security. Left behind carry-on luggage . Took taxi instead of subway to airport in rush hour. Went to wrong airport. Take off delayed due to thunderstorm in Chicago. Based on past experiences, a 10% chance of being the lucky passenger selected for random total inspection. Missed connection due to fog in San Francisco. Overnight in airport hotels at own expense due to weather conditions.
Three weeks till take off. If only I could take the train to Prague.
