The Trip from H*%##

May 8th, 2015 at 03:48 pm

Well I finally made it to the Derby, and it was the trip from hell.

Normally the BF and I travel by ourselves, but for some strange reason we decided to travel with another couple, friends.

First, we got there the plane was delayed. Then we get lost and head into the wrong direction, we didnt make it to the hotel until 4am. Oops I failed to mention we asked our friends to rent their own car, we didn't push the issue but never again.

By 9am they were ready to get moving. With only one rental car, I'm annoyed. Keep in mind both me and the BF was up the day before at 4am, we both worked and didn't get in until 4 am, by time we settled it was 5:30 am. This is why you rent your own car. So we get moving at 12:30 but all the places I want to visit are closed due to the Derby. One place was willing to see us, we were about a hour and a half away but the friends stated we wouldn't make it. Normally the BF and I would have just went.

So we go ahead and head to the Oaks, I'm excited but the friend's husband decide to get into an altercation with a man who was hitting on his wife. Unbelievable. So now my BF is annoyed. We leave after the Oats.

Fast forward day of the Derby, we decide to leave at 12 but had to wait for friends about 30 minutes, again you should have your own car. Oops I didn't mention, my BF came down with a terrible cold or flu. We head out to the Derby, only to be stuck in traffic for over a hour. We then get ripped off by the taxi bike driver. We enter go place out wages and I'm ripped off by the teller.

We find a place to sit in the infield, big mistake, never again. Everything is going well but my BF is really sick. So my friends husband decide he wants to use racial epithets (the C word) now my BF is furious. Thank God I didn't hear him, because I know I would have said something. Long story short never again.

Now we return to the hotel and guess whose sick? Me.

That's it in a nutshell, mind you I kept somethings out.

    Oh my, that sounds like a trip so bad it becomes legendary. As a new standard of bad. Sorry!

    Amber so sorry to hear this! Had a similar experience with holidays & having to share transport which sucked - for my Nan's 80th (she lives in New Zealand, the country next to australia) my sister & I travelled together and my mum travelled with my stepdad & said don't worry about a hire car, we'll go everywhere together. Did we? No. Because me & my sister travelled in slightly different days to them we chose to catch the expensive 3 hr bus there & back because we didn't need to worry about transport. But then my mum & stepdad nicked off sightseeing everyday! The town we were staying in was half an hour away from Nan so we only got to see her on her 80th celebration day and on the way out of there - we were so mad at them. After the bus fare we weren't left with enough for a rental car so we were pretty much stranded. It was like being a teenager - the part that sucked. So I share your frustration, and hope your next holiday is way more enjoyable!

    Oh nooo, Amber, I'm so very sorry to hear how bad the trip was. I know how long you've been looking forward to it.
