Only Me and Me

慢慢看就知道了

Never ever give up

几天前从LA飞回SF,下午1点36分的航班,11点就从家里出发了,可是一路上却很不顺利。
 
家里到LAX(洛杉矶国际机场)的路线一般是:#10 Freeway West -> #710 Freeway South -> #105 Freeway West -> LAX,时耗一般是45分钟到1小时。
 
实际情况:
 
11:10 - 在上10号freeway,发现前方修路,被迫detour。
11:20 -10号接710号公路,结果发现710上堵成一团,连绵不绝,一眼忘不到头的堵。
11:55 -“果断”决定放弃710号公路,走local去105号。
11:55 – 12:45 -local同样堵成一团,还有无数的红绿灯,又完全不熟悉local的路线,也没有详细的地图,只能按着朝南朝西的大方向猛开,也不知什么时候能到105。期间还遇上火车事故(好像是什么东西着火了),结果又被堵在一条铁道线前。
12:45 -这时我基本上已经准备好换下一班飞机了,因为机场的安全检查很花时间,而且一般航班都要在30分钟前check-in,所以基本是赶不上了。
12:50 -但是只是“基本上”赶不上了,只有飞机起飞了,才是“绝对”赶不上。于是莫名其妙地发现105号高速就在眼前,连忙驶上105,向机场狂奔。
1:05 -冲进United Airlines的大厅,询问工作人员,被告知航班要在45分钟前check-in,I am too late.
 
……
 
Fine, I tried my best. Nothing to regret for. 于是去到e-ticket check-in booth准备换下一般航班。
 
但突然发现,原来的航班被delay了。因为旧金山当地暴雨,SFO (旧金山国际机场)已经超负荷运转,于是命令所有后续的航班推迟起飞时间,推迟的时间正好够我赶上原来的航班。
 
如果当时觉得赶不上了,索性慢慢地开的话,也许连delay后的航班也错过了。

I have read this somewhere else:
 
The God only controls half of your life. The harder you try, the more control you have over your own destiny. Some day, you will be able to defeat the God.

    I like it — "The God only controls half of your life. The harder you try, the more control you have over your own destiny. Some day, you will be able to defeat the God."
