August 16, 2004As if god didn't think that i had enoughto worry about with the storm and all, he decided to test me a little bit more
This weekend i had plans to take a 4 day weekend to go visit my mom and go to seaworld. I had a hotel reservation for sunday night in orlando. So, prior to leaving friday night, i called to confirm that they were stil up and running.
I ended up leaving Saturday morning. This is where i saw a horrible sight. In the southbound lane of 75, i saw a silver SRT10 in a tree!! Very painful to see i might add! Not even 5 more miles down the road, i got the pleasure of witnessing a 4 car pile up which held me in the road for about an hour. After that, got to Jacksonville, spent some time with my mom, had a great time.
Left Sunday night at about 6 on my way to Orlando. I was on I-95 for about 5 minutes until is was in bumper to bumber, stand still traffic. Apparently an RV had caught on fire in the middle of the road. So after about 2 hours of being parked in the middle of the interstate, finally got to Orlando around 10.
I pull into the Hotel i had reservations for (and already paid for) and they tell me they have no power (although all the lights and computers are on) and that they cant do anything for me or refund my money, and to simply go somewhere else. (Refund still pending)
Now that im furious, i go down the road and pay for another Hotel, stay there the night, and went to Seaworld today, had a great time. Get in the truck to go home and my gas light comes on. Ok, no problem! 5 gas stations later, i am yet to find one that acutally has gas. After about 1/2 hour of searching, i find a station and wait 1 hour in line, just to get up to the pump and have them tell me that they cannot accept debit or credit cards. (Have no cash on me whatsoever) So, i had to hold up the line for another 1/2 hour while i walk 2 blocks to the closest ATM. Fill up with gas and go home
Seeing as i have 1 more day off of work, i plan on staying home so no more bad things can happen (I Hope)
Sorry sxo long, but im done venting now!
