So yeah…. my bag got into the San Francisco Airport last night, so says the online checking thingie, so I waited patiently for it, gave up and went to bed about 10pm.

I woke up this morning, called the front desk and SHOCKING no bag.

ok, this is annoying, so I called Delta.

The individual on the other end in broken English of unknown ethnicity tells me that my bag left on a flight this morning at 6am for Salt Lake City where it will get a connecting flight to Montreal Canada to be delivered to my final destination.


Sorry, he couldn’t read correctly, it is going to be getting a connecting flight from SLC to Monterrey, California since that is the closest airport to where I am staying.

SO, instead of getting my bag delivered to me last night at arond 10pm, I can expect my bag within 12 hours from when it arrives at the Carmel/Monterrey airport at NOON today.

Honestly, if I had known they were going to do this I would have had them hold the bag in San Fran and driven the hour+ back up there to get the bag last night.

I can understand no real cost to ship from one airport to another, but really… come on now, THAT DOES NOT ALWAYS MAKE SENSE!!!

ok… now to go find somewhere that is open at 7:30 in the morning to buy a pair of underwear and a shirt….

    Wow. I’m so glad I don’t have to travel for work! They should take your bag out of the airport at EACH destination and take it’s picture with a different tourist so that you and your bag can make a nice scrapbook at the end of your journey.

    Someone once did that with a garden gnome.  They kidnapped it off someone’s lawn and brought it back 8 months later with a scrap book of all the places they took it.
