Screwed by Expedia and United Airlines…

We do not travel much, can you tell… the last time I got on a flight before moving to Hawaii was 1991…. so it was 2016 when we moved here and I even took flying lessons… not a big fan…

Anyhow that $800 United and Expedia has of my money is gone… over half was kept by United for a booking fee and the seats disappeared because of Expedia… we didn’t cancel both seats only mine… so Expedia employee is costing me all this money…

We had planned to have me fly Hawaiian with the big dog, 3 hours later, but when the Expedia employee cancelled both our seats that is when my money went with it…

I can’t stress this enough….. TRAVEL INSURANCE IS A SCAM AND WE ARE GETTING NOTHING BACK BECAUSE OF AN EMPLOYEE AT EXPEDIA AND UNITED AIRLINES….

We did all the right things… booked the dogs flight first, gave them all the info, size, cages, weight, etc… not our first rodeo flying dogs….

And then we booked and paid for our flights and when we gave that information to cargo, that was when they told us we couldn’t fly the big dog!!!!

I am a 100% disabled veteran on a fixed income…. I don’t have $800 I can just throw a way….

What this has done, made it impossible for us to make flight arrangement until we close on the sale of our house and have at least 30 days after that closing to get a flight together for all 4 of us on the same day….

My stomach is ready to give me back what little food I got down today…. I am not devastated… because, just as with my “RAPES”, I have no control over those in power….

Not the first lesson I have had with any corporation or business… but Mike will tell you, I haven’t set foot in a Red Lobster in over 20 years…. I do what I can with my pocket book…. and I voice what I can get heard… though watching face book censor in real time has been interesting….

We have the cages, the right sizes, we have communicated with Hawiian airlines and know that we can fly with all of us on the same flight… we will just need a couple weeks to make it happen… and a couple months to recover from the financial hit to my wallet…. and no the credit card company can do nothing… be it air or ship… the consumer is fucked…

TimesUp #MeToo WhyIDidntTell, why do you think so many veterans commit suicide??? No one listened…. and if they did, they did not hear…

I Remember Margie… who so wanted the white mans god to take her… and when she died and it did not… she knew their was and never will be a god…
