SXSW: Trying to get my bags back

18 Mar 2005

One thing worse than arriving in Austin, smelly and tired from a long crappy flight from Heathrow, is doing it without my luggage.

(Dials the American airlines airport baggage line to check on progress)

“This service is voice operated. Please speak clearly when instructed.”
(OK, here we go)

“Please state your destination”
AUSTIN

“I think you said Austin, Texas. Is this correct, please state yes or no.”
YES

“Please state your last name after the tone I’msorryIdidn’thearthat.”
?!!

“Please state your last name.”
HICKS

“I think you said Hickson. H-i-c-k-s-o-n. Is this correct, please state yes or no”
NO!!

“You said no. Lets try again. Please state your last name”
HICKS

“I think you said Heaters. H-e-a-t-e-r-s. Is this correct, please state yes or no”
NOOOOOOO!!!

“Thankyou, accesssing your records now. (bidee-bidee-bidup-bidee-bidee-bidee). Thankyou for waiting Mr Heaters, your baggage arrived yesterday…”
