the perils of trade shows

My company is running a conference in Baltimore. I made the Porkchop come with me because a) it’s boring, b) I need a drinking buddy every night and c) with him here, I have a good excuse to not go out with my bosses at night.

So far, at the airport the mean people threw away about $50 worth of lotions and lipstick. Granted, I forgot my little plastic baggie, but I figured they’d have one (every other time they have), but they didn’t, so I had to toss my stuff.

Then the taxi tried to kill us.

Also, being in this close proximity to my boss for this many hours is very, VERY wrong.

  1. I learned recently after a ton of my crap was thrown out that if you just take it out, all your lotions or whatever, and put them in their own seperate tub without a baggie they will let you keep them. I did it in NY, OR and WA. So far no problems that way. :)

  4. lol, I almost got caught in the JFK airport because one of the ladies said:

    “you carrying liquids, lotions or any drink?”
    “no,no and no”
    “ok, follow the queue”
    ( after crossing the control the woman said )
    “you sure you don’t have nothing in your bag”
    “I am sure….why?”
    “You sure? I think you are a liar”
    ( huhhh???????? )
    “You have a bottle of water”
    “IT IS ONLY WATER! and I forgot, I AM SORRY!”

    Imagine the situation, that cow yelling on me and the rest of the passengers waiting … ¬¬ silly.
