It's a good thing my husband checked our flight schedule last night.

We are going to New England for 12 days.

Supposed to leave this morning with a 9am flight.

Checked it last night, and when he booked it, he scheduled the 9pm flight.

It sucks as I hate late flights as we now lose a day of our vacation we could be spending with my family that I haven't seen in a year.

Oh well.

1. I'm glad that, at least, it wasn't the other way around with a missed flight.

 

I hate when I make booking errors like that. They are costly errors to correct unless you book expensive tickets to begin with.



Have fun!

2. my wife did something very similar

 

when she was pregnant, she was given a delivery date since she had gestational diabetes, doctor said to goto the hospital at 5 and she ,the doctor , will be there shortly. later on closer due the due date i asked what time are we supposed to be there my wife said the dr said 5am i said that didnt sound right but my wife was absolutly sure so i accepted it.
when we showed up at 5am we were told that we were there 12 hours early.

3. Something similar happened to me once

I had booked a short vacation for myself a year or two after I got out of college - it was going to Florida from Connecticut. Unfortunately, the agent for the airline had reverse-booked me and I didn't even notice until the day before - she had me going from Florida to Connecticut, and then returning to Florida several days later. Luckily, they were able to work it out as none of the flights were full. (this was in the Dark Ages of the early 90s before the internets were commonplace.)

Sorry to hear about the mix-up, though.

4. I was once seconds away from checking out of a hotel in New Orleans

 

with the in-room checkout feature, when it occurred to me to check my flight.

Sure enough, it was for the following day.

Nice day. I got to jeer all the Eagles fans who were in town to watch their team lose to the Saints in a playoff game.
