Over Thanksgiving break I participated in many occasions, both social and solo.
One such occasion was this: On my way back from Providence I was in the airport when a U.S. Airways employee at the desk of gate F8 announced over the intercom:
"Flight 5002 has been overbooked. We are now looking for volunteers to trade their seats on this flight for a guaranteed seat on a later flight. Additionally, volunteers will receive flight vouchers good towards any future flight at the amount of $2oo. Please see the desk for more information."
So I thought to myself, "I guess I'll do it. I've got time to spare."
So I did it. I sat and waited for the next flight and held my voucher happily. When the next flight arrived, the lady at the desk announced the exact same situation. What did I do? What any sensible asian would! I took the deal again and obtained another voucher! $400 dollars in vouchers!
"Oh. Wait... It looks like there won't be any flights until tomorrow morning..."
"... Okay, so I should just wait-"
"Let me ring up a hotel voucher for you, Mr.Wang."
An hour later I was sitting pantsless in an extra-large king size bed in a two and a half star Philadelphia hotel watching Cinderella Man.
I ended up watching that movie 3 times and Gladiator 2 times.
The following pieces were inspired during Thanksgiving week (save for the Closer poster):
