I have always heard of stories from someone who loose their baggage and what deal they go through when it arrives late or never does. It was my turn this time. Endless rows of bags passing by but not mine. After a long wait one of the check-in bag showed up but not the one that had everything for my 6 week trip in US. The last container got emptied too but still mine never showed up. So this is it. Not even a single pair of clothes to change. I checked in the baggage to my flight to Baltimore and walked towards the phone to make a few calls. ATT gladly ate all my quarters, ALL of them. Fed up with whatever was going, headed towards my flight and the pilot decided to take a toll on me too. Poorly maintain cabin pressure was pounding my ears. A cute baby sitting next to me was crying all the way.
Thank God I got my only baggage at the Baltimore International. My friend was there to pick me up. Off we drove to his house. Dominos Pizza, Cheese sticks and Chicken wings for dinner was heaven after that long 24 hour flight from India. With no pair of clothes to get into, had to sleep with the same stinking clothes. Slept like a baby until it was 10 in the morning. Tiredness is Bliss!!
First thing first, head to Wal-Mart. Picked some vests, briefs, a pair of jeans and t-shirt, shoes and some other essential stuff keeping in mind, what if the bag never arrives. Shower after 2 days was rejuvenating. I received a call from the airline to my hotel stating that bags left out at Frankfurt and would reach me any time by Sunday evening. Finally it did!!! Finally. Now need to the get a delayed baggage report from the airline to claim my insurance for delayed baggage. Wish me luck!!
