the most traumatic travel experience of my life

Published by Darron Toy on



right now I'm in Maine obviously I don't live in Maine so I'm traveling here to Maine with my family I had one of the most traumatic travel days of my entire life and I didn't vlog any of it because do you know what it was just too traumatic and I'll tell you the story because I feel like you know what why not you know I'll tell you the story so here's what happened it all started out at 11:00 a.m. at SFO San Francisco Airport California no big deal that's where I live okay whatever I don't live at the airport but you know what I mean my flight was that like I don't know 11 a.m. my first flight was from SFO to Chicago Airport and then from Chicago to Maine that was the plan no big deal before my flight in Chicago I supposed to have like a 45-minute layover which is a short layover but we're like you know what we can make it happen 40 you know 45 minutes we can just bolt that's not a long layover so we were a little bit worried you know we'll see we'll see what happens our flight from SFO to Chicago it's a little bit delayed so we're like you know what a little bit stressed out but we're like you know what we can still make it we can still make it we'll make it happy since flight nothing crazy happened but then all of a sudden the flight lands and we get a announcement on the overhead thing and they announce that there's a medical thing going on and we were going to have to taxi for longer we weren't gonna be like leaving the plane for like another like 20 minutes and at that time our flight was going to leave in 20 minutes like our flight was going to take off the ground in 20 minutes and we're like what are we gonna do is surrender to the fact that we're gonna miss our flight like all right you know what we're gonna miss our flight so we looked online and um we saw that that was the last flight going to Maine tonight so we're like do you know what we're screwed we're gonna have to stay at a hotel in Chicago we're like what are we gonna do 20 minutes we have 20 minutes really how are we gonna do this right now we're like standing in the aisles of the plane just like waiting for like the paramedics to leave the plane and we're so stressed out because we feel bad because of course like whatever is having a medical issue I mean heart goes out to them I don't know they're okay by the way but it was just stressful cuz we're like we want to get off the plane but at the same time you know you wanna have sympathy for whatever the situation is and we want to like ask if we can get off the plane earlier because you know our flight leaves in 20 minutes it leaves in 20 minutes but we were the we were on the last row of the plane we were literally the last row there was not one row behind us we were the last one the 53rd row that was us so we had there was just it was crazy technically we're the ones who would get off the plane last at this why I mean my dad we're just pushing everybody out of the way really nope nope no Wharton no sorry my flight leaves in 20 minutes we're trying to make it everybody's like you're not even gonna make it we're like oh honey we're gonna make it okay no we're in like Terminal one like our plane landed in Terminal one not only this is like the big one of the biggest airports like in the US okay and we have to get from turn on one to Terminal two in like 15 minutes before a plane takes off not before boarding like our plate our plane was already boarded at the time and we're not even off the plane yet and our plane was boarding and it wasn't like oh you know you just run to the next gate like we had to run all the way from one terminal to the next this is what we're like all hope is lost really I don't even know I don't even know to make matters worse on our like ticket that we printed out in the beginning of the trip it said that like the gate was not yet assigned so we didn't even know what gate our thing was at all we knew was it was in terminal 2 and we were in terminal 1 so really okay but I don't even know we asked some guy to like look up our flight and so he looks up our flight he's he worked at the airport can either take a shuttle or you can walk and it's gonna take 20 minutes either way and me and my dad we're like we're gonna freaking run this point we have 15 minutes really our plane is gonna leave in 15 minutes and we have to no joke run all the way across this Airport okay so I kid you not me and my dad run over a mile with all of our own carry-on luggage we're running through the airport like just running pushing past people it's so crowded I'm like dying like running in general is horrible but like running with like freaking backpack just filled with a bunch of stuff so heavy literally running as fast as we possibly can we ran for like 15 minutes straight up running and I'm like that's like enough exercise for like the entire year and our gait is like f21 we see a gate and it's f1 we have to go to F 21 so we're like alright you know what we're closed right our plane is leaving in two minutes we're like no we just ran like for ten minutes there's no way that plane is leaving without us there's no way we're gonna let that plane leave so we frickin keep going we're like you know what we're playing is leaving in two minutes we need to keep going my dad's ahead of me at this point cuz I'm just dying like I'm so red I'm illiterate sweat is dripping down I'm red like at this point it's like who even know it's like I don't even know it's going on like at this point I'm just like I don't even know what who even am I like I don't even know that nothing matters to me except for getting on this flight we have two minutes to get there it's all or nothing right now every ounce of energy I had with I was putting it towards getting on that plane I was going to get on that freaking plane it was the last thing I did in my life I was literally gonna walk out onto the tarmac and hold on to the freaking airplane wing until they noticed me and let me on the plane I don't even care I was like no this is my number one priority in my life right now we're running through the f gates it's like f1 f2 f3 f4 then there's a food Court for like no joke one minute just the biggest food court you've ever seen and I'm just like running past this food court and it's just like the gates just end then finally we pass through the freakin food court and it's like okay f7 f8 f9 we just keep running the last F gate it was like f21 was like the last freakin F gate and just like never and if it was huge the airport is huge and each gate was so big it was unbelievable one minute until our flight is supposed to like leave like the doors are closed in like one minute and we're just like we're not gonna make it my dad just starts going he's like he's at this point he's just full full-on sprinting and I'm like I can't even do this I'm like I can't freaking sprint I've been running for the past fifteen minutes with a backpack look I'm dead right now so my dad runs up ahead he's like very far ahead at this point I'm like freaking I'm back here I like it sorry no he turns the corner and I see him like pop out his head and he's like thumbs up and I'm like no frickin way I'm like what does this mean I run up to him and I look around the corner and there's no one else in the gate the gate is completely empty and there's one guy at the counter and I see my dad scanning the ticket and I'm like holla freaking lujah like literally yes I believe like I don't know and then I asked my dad later I'm like was he just standing there he's like no the guy that was like checking the tickets he did one like last call where he like stuck his head out of the door like for one last second before he was about to go in and shut the door for good he was doing his last colleague literally looking out to be like is anybody else here alright shut the door he looks out and my dad comes around the corner right at that second and frickin catches the guy right moment so for years about to close the door literally if we would have ran slower for like three more seconds if we if the time would have been shifted three seconds like later we wouldn't made it on like that's how freaking unreal it was we get on this plane and I tell you what I have never been happier to be on a plane in my entire life it was probably one of the best feelings I've ever felt in my life we get on the plane I'm sitting there I'm like do you know what I'm sweating I feel disgusting but I'm a champion right now this is like one of the best moments of my life I was so proud and we just freaking savage that everybody was like you're gonna miss your flight everybody was like you're not gonna make it just don't even try and we're like no we're gonna freakin try we made it on the plane and look where I am now if we wouldn't have ran I wouldn't even be here right now I'd still be in Chicago after that no so anyway that was freaking crazy um I hope you're still freaking not bored because I would be bored Fazio if you thought it ended there it didn't we land and our luggage didn't come basically it didn't have enough time to get to the plane our luggage was still in Chicago and it still is right now so today is the next day it's like 11 a.m. and I'm still wearing the same shirt that I was wearing and I'm still wearing the same pants in the same shoes and and same everything I haven't changed since yesterday I feel disgusting and I'm waiting for my luggage to come it's supposed to come today they're driving it to us we don't have to go back to the airport thank God just a quick shout out to United Airlines they told us they like yeah we forgot your luggage we'll drive it to you tomorrow no big deal but for now they gave both me and my dad these United water bottles okay thank you United thank you so much for setting us up with a flight that was like impossible they like set up you know a 48 minute layover and it was our choice you know we didn't have to take that but we did and they really didn't plan that out well because that's an impossible thing to do 48 minute layover there's no way you could make it like there's no way we'll never do that again but hey do you know what through all of that we're all the stress and pain and tears and blood and sweat we got these water bottles so right now I'm gonna do a little haul for you well do you know what you don't even care if this is boring it comes with all the things you're gonna need deodorant toothpaste lotion the tic tacs a toothbrush even I mean it's totally cute but I'm like you know United you freaking lost my luggage and now you're giving me this like you think this is really enough like do you know what you've just put me through I almost have like a heart attack like eight times throughout that travel experience and like you give me this and think it's okay and then you lose my freaking luggage and leave it in Chicago and then you give me this and think of that it's all gonna be cool and it's all gonna be dandy and all right I'm sorry United but life doesn't work like that you know United they've had a few scandals recently they just think that they can just hand out these water bottles and think everybody's gonna like him again it's not really how it works this is kind of cool whatever but you know you need to work on what on your thing you just it's not we're all the story is if you think you're gonna miss your flight just go just try just you know what never give up because you never know like if you just tell yourself I'm not gonna make it we defied all odds and like I also ran like that's also defying all odds but now I'm here and that's good that was my story I hope you're not bored and if you are I'm sorry I don't know you

I’m hysterically laughing because I totally relate!! I went through the same experience at LAX, except I ran like a mile too and past my gate to the very last one. But by the time I realized it was the wrong gate, mine was completely empty and the door was closed! I also missed my connection, so they offered me a hotel to spend the night plus free food. I was traveling alone so that was traumatic AF but I learned so much from the experience and now I can finally laugh at it. Lol

so uh we had the same thing happen today and we said we are here let us on when the gate agent was on the last call check. but she said too late and closed the door in our face. our replacement flight got cancelled. then we didn't get to our destination until 3 am. we were supposed to get there 13 hours earlier.

i feel like almost all of the traumatic travel experiences happen with united. so did mine hahah. it was awful and i will a) never fly united again if i can help it, and b) never book a long overnight flight. i’m just gonna give a brief explanation. so we were flying home from hawaii. we had to fly 7 1/2 hours overnight to texas. i got maybe 15 mins of sleep (in like 2 min bursts) and that’s being generous. they said “make sure you close the window shades cuz you don’t wanna be woken up by the sunrise” they gave us drinks once at the beginning of the flight and once at the end of the flight. we landed in houston. we got sandwiches for breakfast and i dropped mine. i was probably more dehydrated than i’ve ever been in my life so i had a water bottle and a sprite and i wasn’t just drinking as much as i could. anyway, we flew back to where i live and it was HOT outside. i was wearing a hoodie bc i get cold on planes. we had to wait like 20 minutes outside for our shuttle to come. and then we got home and i wanted to sleep 😂

Sophie Kennedy · May 14, 2019 at 7:16 pm
