Epic trip back from Spain. First, the plane in Madrid was delayed for two hours, while they check out why that pesky systems alert light was on. After revising all the moving parts, they had to turn the whole airplane off and then on, to reboot the system. It reminded me of this sketch from The IT Crowd: "Hello, IT, have you tried turning it off and on again?"
Then we could go. Atlanta was the usual transition hell, until we emerged and found we'd been rebooked to the next flight out, just one hour later. Then we could relax. Taxi to where I left the car, in my work parking ramp, to discover a dead battery. But, as the Gopher hockey game was letting out, all I had to do was pop the hood, get out the jumper cables and stand next to my car for 30 whole seconds before a wonderful Minnesota handy guy with wife in tow leaped forward with an offer to help. Before he could even pull his car around, another such offer had been made. I love MN winter car help!
