    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....

    @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.

    Isn't there one cafe there that takes cards?

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

    @chipsenkbeil
    Ha ha ha
    I just wasn't expecting to have not eaten or be stuck in Frankfurt for so long.

    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

    @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~540393fe163965c9bc2018ce
    that's pretty ridiculous given how many flights are there
    Chip Senkbeil
    @chipsenkbeil
    Card got declined trying to get water. Ugh

    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.

    @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~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

    Chip Senkbeil

    Hurray! I've landed! Now to get to the hotel and hopefully still have a room to check into.
    And hopefully my luggage followed me.
    Chip Senkbeil
    @chipsenkbeil
    Is it better to get Euros or the Polish currency here? Just need some backup cash.
    Rory Graves

    Chip Senkbeil
    @chipsenkbeil
