Taco Bell and Turbulence – or a reminder that Pride comes before a Fall


I don’t do silly things often. Lately, I have made some exceptions to the rule. I took my daughter to the Taco Bell drive through for a quesadilla. Have you ever noticed the first menu, the one you get to before the real menu? It allows you to take a glance while you wait for the person in front of you to order. Well, I started speaking to the wrong menu. The car in front of me was ordering, and I was at the glace menu, asking questions and trying to order. No one was listening. No one was there. My daughter and I got a good laugh. Then,  I arrive at the airport yesterday to check in for my trip. I go to the self check-in kiosk. The kind lady, who works for Delta, was trying to help me. I was nice to her, but in my mind thinking, “Lady, I am a seasoned traveler. I know what I am doing. Please leave me alone.” It turns out, after her persistence, I realize I am at the wrong kiosk. I was at the Delta check-in, but flying American. Well, nobody’s perfect. It is a reminder that pride comes before a fall. We all make mistakes and need a daily dose of humility, especially me!
