The people of @VirginAmerica were amazing yesterday. My wife and I were set to board a flight from SFO, with a bag checked, when we got a call about a dog emergency that called for us to stay home. From the gate agent to the front desk and baggage claims people each person who helped us was wonderful, and we were a bit stressed.
I cannot thank all of you enough! Everyone did and said the right things and went above and beyond what was necessary to help.
I’ll be back tomorrow for my rebooked flight. I’m hoping to see some of you so I can say thank you again in person. You were the bright spot in a difficult day. And I have my fingers crossed that an aisle seat opens up… :)
Again, thanks caring and taking care of business.
“The English language has some wonderfully anthropomorphic collective nouns for the various groups of animals. We are all familiar with a Herd of cows, a Flock of chickens, a School of fish and a Gaggle of geese.
“However, less widely known is a Pride of lions, a Murder of crows (as well as their cousins the rooks and ravens), an Exaltation of doves and, presumably because they look so wise, a Parliament of owls.
“Now consider a group of Baboons. They are the loudest, most dangerous, most obnoxious, most viciously aggressive and least intelligent of all primates. And what is the proper collective noun for a group of baboons?
“Believe it or not…, a Congress! I guess that pretty much explains the things that come out of Washington!”
With apologies to Baboons everywhere, I certainly hope that things will improve when Congress returns from its break. We the people deserve better than what we’re getting.
