G8 ripples, or Lufthansa madness

Last couple of weeks were crazy all over Europe. This might be because of the G8 convention, or just bad Karma in general. But EVERY single flight I had was late.
Last week, I had a quicky. 6 flights in 3 days. 3 destinations, 3 meetings, and back home. However, all the flights were late. and all my flights had connections.
however, Lufthansa were cool about it, and offered us free bonuses. For one, a free seat near the take off lane, to enjoy watching all the planes take off. No extra charge. But the greatest bonus of all was the sauna. We boarded a plane at mid-day, with over 30 degrees Celsius (That’s 90 Fahrenheit to all Americans). 300 people, in a tin box, with no air conditioning, for over one hour.
Just imagine the heat. Healthy, cleansing sweat, running out of every pore of your body. Better than a sleeping pill, let me tell you that. Just fade away into unconsciousness and enjoy the experience.
Arriving in Frankfurt, a tad late, and partly alive, we saw the most awesome sight.
The entire airport was in fast forward. EVERY SINGLE person in that huge place was late for a flight, somewhere else. Everyone was running. It was like watching that Queen “Under pressure” video, but faster. Much faster.

I could not help but laugh. Hundreds of tiny little ants, running and pushing and bustling along, all trying to make a flight that let me assure you, was late anyway.
I cannot help but suspect that it was all one big joke, that someone was sitting near the roof, with a drink in their hand, rubbing a big white cat, and laughing at the people below. “Muuu Haaaa haaa haaaa!!!”

Oh, and thank you for flying Lufthansa…
