My next stop on my journey was Chicago – I flew over with Bettina from My StampBox and we had a good time…two Krauts at the border from Canada to the U.S. …interesting….I must have come across pretty krautish too, because voicing my opinion over United Airlines Costumer Service (why the heck do I get yelled at that I didn’t check in again at the kiosk if I checked in online and have a boarding pass that says- go right to baggage drop off?) ended up in having my luggage receipt glued down right on the boarding pass bar code…which lead to a lot of waiting time in any following line. Thank you, United, always a pleasure flying with you….NOT
