If the story stopped there, it'd be my exact story of connecting through uckfaying IAH.

Fuuuuuck IAH. Nice to hear I'm not the only one who's been jerked around there.

Word.

My only experience with IAH was flying from Austin thru Houston to Calgary. We had 1.5 hours to make a connection. By the time we got onto the shuttle thing, we had 20 minutes to get to our gate. All the uckfay across the damn airport. Breathlessly ran to the gate. OUR PLANE IS OVERBOOKED WHO WANTS TO GIVE UP YOUR itshay

uckfay no, I just finished a work onsite and I want to be in my bed, in Calgary, right the uckfay now.

Sorry Chris. I didn't know the extent of your delays. I'll hug you extra warmly next meet.

I may scream like a dainty lady, but I punch like a fairly strong 11-year-old.

Shave your beard, terrorist.

Don't be jealous, bro. One day you'll be able to grow one.

I think it was the beard combined with doing a hot towel shave on your head in the airport lobby that #triggered it.

I'm getting white girl wasted in the Maple Leaf lounge while you're getting a cavity search by Fat Fingers Fred.

I think we're even.

It really doesn't help that you look like the stereotypical drug mule and you have been to Mexico twice in 3 months.  Not to mention the trip to Vegas on top of that.

You probably fit the profile with those kinds of trips.

Good luck!!!

uckfay you USA!!!!

Was pleasantly surprised at how smooth my trip to Denver went. Flying to USA from Canada, the security screening is ALL done at the Calgary airport. It's definitely more of a PITA than domestic security screening, but at least it's out of the way early so once you land, you can just get your bags and go.

Coming back, you go through the same security screening as anybody on US domestic flights, but the lineups are enormous and they're so anal about taking off your shoes and everything. Regardless, no issues. Then once I landed in Calgary, I just had to get through CBSA. I've never really had a huge lineup there before, but we landed immediately after 2 or 3 other planes this time, so when we go that area, the line was LONG. Luckily they had a lot of agents working and I was through in about 20 minutes. Felt bad for the family ahead of me with 3 kids under the age of 4.

In short, if you're flying internationally, do everything you can to avoid layovers in the US. Flying to and from US destinations is bad but not as bad as arriving in the US from other countries.

Hey! I look like an upstanding citizen! I was showered, and wearing clean chinos and a button down. That's beard discrimination!

Yeah, the travel history is what probably flagged me out. Ah well, we'll see what happens the next time I'm down there.

It's a huge pain in the assay, but you're right, it certainly makes it easier when you get to your destination.

I wish there was a direct route to Monterrey, I would love to avoid flying through the States, but not much I can do.

Lots of new builds up there for your family too, no need to be jealous. Plus, with Asstuna out of town, we can raid his garage for his secret stash of lube!!!

Hence my confusion. When did you get plugs put in. You should grow a tremendous mullet to go along with your new persona. Might fit in better when you walk outside of your work onto the corner
