I thought it would never happen.
I hate to admit it, but I have succumbed to a common illness called Conference Overload, or CO.
I was in denial until this morning, when I logged on to print my boarding pass for the trip to TRAFFIC in Las Vegas tomorrow. The airline web site didn’t recognize my reservation. I called the airline to see what was going on. Then I noticed that I had booked travel for last week, not this week.
The side effects of CO are severe, even though those afflicted try to play them off. For example, instead of a non-stop flight to Las Vegas and back for about $200 round trip, I’m now stuck with a layover each way for $500 round trip. This will leave me only a scant 48 hours in Vegas.
On the bright side, do you really need more than 48 hours in Vegas?
