60 seconds late, 20080731th0402

I arrived at the hotel front desk at 4:01 AM, and the shuttle driver
said to me, "You're late." I thought he was joking, but he was
serious. I'd already paid for the room, so checkout took about 30
seconds and we were literally on the road by 4:02 AM.

Last night when I arranged for the shuttle, the person I spoke to
suggested (implied) that the shuttle driver on duty in the middle of
the night (early in the morning) would just be sitting around doing

... Nothing except watching the second hand on the clock, I guess.

In the time it took to write this entry, I already arrived at the
airport and I'm third in line at the ticket counter.

I'll check back in a little while.
