On Buying A Ticket

Find the fare again. Enter all data. Notice passport is expired. Hit submit to buy the fare.

Have the fare be fucking yanked and be told it is no longer available.

Fuck you, airline booking industry. I guess I am better off with a travel agent. I wish I knew one that would work over e-mail. Or some sort of site where I enter in plain text when I want to travel, and a bunch of them get back to me with itineraries that make sense. Not, I refuse to use when you realize that damn computer has no problems giving you itineraries that could have you be stuck on a lay-over for five hours -- and you don't even know till you have already paid.

I will go to the consulate tomorrow to extend my passport. But I hate this.
