This week's topic is My Biggest Vacation Disaster. Well this is going to be sort post, I've never really had any vacation disasters, at least none to ruin a vacation. As far as I'm concerned if I'm on vacation and not at work, things are pretty damn good. I could say that nine months after our trip to Cancun, Minion #1 was born, that could be a disaster, depending on the day. I guess I will give you a few different instances that have happened on past vacations instead.

So because we are people who don't suck off the system, we got screwed. We drove to the E.R. whereas all of the drunk ass, blacked out, beach dwellers were brought in by ambulance, so they got priority. Nice...some eighteen year old dumbass gets cocked on Seagull beach and passes out, his friends call the ambulance because they are just as dumb if not dumber than his drunk ass and he has a place to sleep it off, while there are other people worse off than he is. Long story short, the Trophy was put on some antibiotics and we continued our vacation with only a span of eight hours that were wasted in the E.R.
Then there was that time we went to Colorado. We had this trip planned for months, Minion #1 was only eight months old and we were all excited to be going on vacation as a family. When we arrived at the airport, we were boarded easily and then we sat on the runway...for 90 minutes because our pilot was scared to fly in the rain. Have you ever been trapped in a long metal tube with an eight month old? Fan-fucking-tastic. Back then there wasn't portable DVD players and we weren't fortunate to have smart phones. There's only so many Veggie Tales books you can read before and eight month old gets bored.
|Sad but true, we watched a snow storm come in and then go to 60 degrees|
The last one I will tell you about (I have plenty by the way) is our trip to Cape Cod a few years ago. It was during hurricane Danielle (I think), it was definitely a hurricane headed towards the Cape and I know this because the traffic was awesome heading down! Heading off the Cape was a different story. Anyway, we got down there and everyone was hunkering down, not us though we wanted to go see the waves...we're simple dry land people so things like that amuse us. We went to the beach where we couldn't see the waves because of the crazy thing that happens at night called darkness. The wind was blowing (duh) and we left and went to the house to sleep. I wanted to wake up nice and early to go scope out the destruction and see what happened, again simple people we are.
So there you go, a few anecdotes about some of my vacations...hope you enjoyed!
