The Five Stages of Grief

Still no answer from <the world's favorite airline>. I need closure. I need to be absolutely sure that there's no way I can make my journey by Christmas. Then I can get on with my inner journey through the Kübler-Ross model's five stages of grief.

 1. DENIAL: They can't have shut down the airport for a couple of inches of snow.

2. ANGER: They shut down the f*cking airport for a couple of inches of snow! 

3. BARGAINING: If I could just get through to the help desk, I'd take anything.

4. DEPRESSION: Two f*cking weeks of "A Charlie Brown Christmas".

5. ACCEPTANCE: I've never watched it. Maybe I'll like it... Maybe.

  2. I'm not sure I under an airline not answering their phones for.. days, is it now?... Sucks. And I hope if you DO have to watch Charlie Brown that you get some enjoyment out of it... I personally was never a Charlie Brown fan.

  13. Charlie Brown is neurotic. He is prone to depression and anxiety and fits of over-analysis. He worries constantly about being liked or respected and has a creepy stalkerish relationship with the little redheaded girl.
