(wow, 2 posts in 1 day!)
As you see from my counter above, only 4 more days before our trip! I am so excited and I've made some time this week to read through our Lonely Planet and I keep getting more and more pumped. Geoff has done most of the planning and has really gone above and beyond. Well, no one is perfect.... let me explain.... Geoff innocently booked my ticket to Europe (7 months ago) under DeeDee instead of my legal name, Diane. We realized this over the weekend and thought it would be a pretty simple error to fix, maybe a fee of $150 or something, but nothing like THIS. In a nutshell, we have talked to every supervisor, every supervisors supervisor and NOBODY is budging. We have tried the get mad approach, that didn't work. We tried the cry and sob and make up extravagant stories, that didn't work. We even went to the airport with documents from the Superintendent of our district saying that my nickname is DeeDee and that I am, indeed, Diane. Nothing. Meanwhile, we've put another reservation for that day on hold (thanks to my parents air miles-- so grateful) and we are just hoping we won't have to use it and they'll let me (DeeDee) on the plane! We've been making several calls a day and won't stop until we leave. It just seems ridiculous that we can't get help with this. If you have any ideas of what to do, I'm all ears.
