Home again! I had forgotten what true heat is but it hit me full on as soon as I stepped out of that Cancun terminal.
I was happily surprised both going to the USA and coming back at how courteous everybody was. Even the TSA people at Security in the airports were polite and helpful. Amazing. The only bad feeling I got was from the Northwest Airlines Flight Attendents. They don't greet you as you enter the plane anymore and act like everything they have to do is a chore. A great big pain in the ass to have to be in that airplane with all those people. Plus they are usually old and ugly nowadays. Maybe it is a second career for them and they are unhappy to have to be working. Who knows. They really, in my opinion, need to go back to customer service school.
Unfortunately, I got the red light in Cancun and was directed to a huge chrome table to have my luggage inspected. Now that guy was definately an asshole. He emptied everything out of my luggage, finding and unwrapping everything I had in them that I had wrapped up in clothing to keep it safe. Like various spices I can't find here. Plus he wanted to know what everything was. Like he had never seen a bottle of spices before or a bag of Pizza Crust Mix. The ass even took the yarn band off the new yarn I bought and unwrapped the skein to make sure nothing was inside. Now I have a pile of knots. Thankfully he did not find my secret pocket in my big backpack. Lisa will be glad for that!
So home again. Safe and sound. Definately going to have a Sol or two to celebrate!
