Have you seen the reports on Terri Weissinger? She lived in the San Francisco airport for 8 days. Why? Because the people at US Airways are the a-holes of the day. I would say week, but I think that judge from Texas has got that award pretty much sewn up at this point. Terri was moving from California to Idaho. She had two bags. The airline wanted to charge her $60 in fees. Terri had $30. The airline said, "Sorry. No discounts." Terri offered to leave a bag behind, or to pay them when she landed. The airline said, "No." While Terri was discussing all of this with the airline, her flight left without her. So, to change the ticket to another flight was going to cost an additional $150 for a grand total of $210. Terri did not have it.

So, with no place to return to and no way to get where she was going, Terri stayed at the airport for 8 days. Airport officials threatened to have her arrested and US Airways told her everyday that Terri was out of luck. Any supervisor could have overridden her fees, but they did not, despite the fact they saw her in the airport everyday for 8 days. The fact that even after Terri got her money from an airport church, the airline did not have any sympathy for her shows how evil they are and how you should avoid them at all costs. However, on the bright side, I think Southwest should hire Terri as their new spokesperson. She could be like their Jared from Subway.
Now, with all of that being said, who moves to a new place with $30? Was she meeting someone there? How come they could not wire her the money? Does she not have any friends who could have given her $210? Where is she planning on living in Idaho?
