    And someone is blocking our gate. Airlines, you're failing me right now!
    Rory Graves
    @rorygraves
    gah!
    Are you still in the US?
    Chip Senkbeil
    @chipsenkbeil
    No, in Frankfurt at least.
    I'm so hungry. I've had three protein bars and the airline meal in the past 24 hours.

    On the plus side you are are the right side of the water!
    The facilities airside at frankfurt are a bit limited if I remember

    @chipsenkbeil
    Glad I asked about my return flight. First leg was deleted by United and had a new ticket number.
    Rory Graves
    @rorygraves
    yep, that could have been fun

    I grew up around the Atlanta airport. So, Frankfurt doesn't seem so bad.
    I was hoping to find an atm or something. I don't trust my cards to work the first time. Especially since I just said Poland in my travel list.

    First time we went through frankfurt we were 'oh we will get some food and drinks airside' - oh.... appparently we keep all the nice food on the outside....
    Chip Senkbeil
    @chipsenkbeil
    Yeah. The ATM is outside.

    @rorygraves
    how long till your flight?
    Chip Senkbeil
    @chipsenkbeil
    It leaves at 4:45 PM. Going to have to not eat until then, I guess.
    Rory Graves
    @rorygraves
    Isn't there one cafe there that takes cards?

    @chipsenkbeil
    My bank blocked me. And calling to resolve costs $0.20 a minute.

    @ghost~540393fe163965c9bc2018ce
    ouch
    do you have apple pay or anything like that?
    Chip Senkbeil
    @chipsenkbeil
    Nope

    @ghost~540393fe163965c9bc2018ce
    banks are utterly shit
    Chip Senkbeil
    @chipsenkbeil
    Ha ha ha
    I just wasn't expecting to have not eaten or be stuck in Frankfurt for so long.
    Ghost
    @ghost~540393fe163965c9bc2018ce
    I recommend going to a restaurant, eating your food, and then finding out
    they can't ask for the food back
    they may give you access to their phone to resolve the problem
    Rory Graves
    @rorygraves
    Haha you have clearly never been to airside of Frankfurt airport, last time I was there it was more of 'one coffee place'.
    Ghost
    @ghost~540393fe163965c9bc2018ce
    that's pretty ridiculous given how many flights are there
    Chip Senkbeil
    @chipsenkbeil
    Card got declined trying to get water. Ugh
    Ghost
    @ghost~540393fe163965c9bc2018ce
    sheesh
    at least you have time to finish your talk
    I just finished mine
    by throwing a bunch of hand wavey bits on the last few slides
    Chip Senkbeil
    @chipsenkbeil
    Ha
    I just spent too much money on hold with my bank to get my credit card approved for Germany so I can eat a hotdog.

    Living the high life!
    Chip Senkbeil
    @chipsenkbeil
    FYI, I'll probably be sleeping today as soon as I get to the hotel.
    Maybe practice again to check timing after rearranging a lot of slides.
    Rory Graves
    @rorygraves
    fair enough
    Ghost
    @ghost~540393fe163965c9bc2018ce
    the cheapness of Poland will make up for the hotdog
    especially with your fancy $$$
    Chip Senkbeil
    @chipsenkbeil
    Ha ha. A friend of mine in Chicago was telling me that.
    At least everyone here has been friendly.
    Rory Graves
    @rorygraves
    dont worry - Sam and I wil abuse you in Poland so you don't feel homesick
    Chip Senkbeil
    @chipsenkbeil
    Oh good :D
