I had the awesome privilege this weekend to chase my dreams by speaking at a conference in Reno, Nevada. I was told by several in the audience that it went well despite some upsetting circumstances.
I flew U.S. Airways from Milwaukee to Reno, with a layover in Phoenix. When I entered the plane to Reno from Phoenix they told me I had to express check my bag because the flight was packed. I have done this several times before so I thought this was no big deal. There were also 50 people behind me so I didn’t have time to properly react.
When I got to Reno I waited by the door where they usually bring the bags that are express checked, right away I got nervous when they told me the bag was in baggage claim.
I went down to baggage claim, waited for all the bags and sure enough my bag didn’t come out. I was nervous, upset and scared; all I took out of the bag was my ID and my debit card (praise the Lord for that move).
Still in my bag were all my clothes, especially the ones I was going to wear to speak. My laptop was in there which had the Power Point for my presentation. My wallet was in there with $80.00 in cash and my Passport and all my documents.
Hind sight being 20/20 I should have grabbed the wallet and passport but such is life. The only person at U.S. Airways with any competence was the woman in baggage claim, she went over and beyond to help me, thank you ………….. (more…)
